Last few days, I was suddenly obsessed on organizing all contacts on my Android phone, Lime. The reason was because had mishaps with it once that I had to re-flash my rom. That would of course mean wiping out everything. Knowing the lazy girl I am, you’d bet and yes, I don’t back up my contacts! The thing is before I had a smart phone, I had them on my sim cards. But now, I don’t anymore due to my lack of interest and since I don’t use it much anymore to sms anyone or call. In fact, my only reason are the applications, the awesome tweaks and learning Android environment. Yet lately, I had the feeling of wanting it fixed because of my coming birthday perhaps, as well as my graduation. I wanted to re-connect with some old friends and my relatives too. So I decided, it’s time to be organized – I already knew about Google Sync before; Why didn’t I use it before, I told myself.
So to start, I really worked hard on organizing everything. In one of my gmail accounts, I deleted EVERY uneccessary contact. Then I started from letter A. Of course, I copied what was in my sim card. I made sure there were also individual pictures because it makes your phone book hip! Really!
I really, threw in so much effort! I asked some of my friends and relatives in Facebook for their contact numbers. Then, it was time to Google sync, so voila!
Not only did I sync it on my dear Lime (Samsung Galaxy Mini), I also synced it to my Jet (Blackberry 9790), Apple (Nokia X6 – but not in picture), Strawberry (Nokia X5) and Klapaucius (iPod touch) as soon on these pictures! Because I tell you I was so obsessed I researched. Now saving contacts is easier and faster because vice versa, if I update any of these phones, it will be saved on my Gmail contacts, then so, every phone and gadget will get all contacts. I can email my friends anytime easily without having to remember and ask his or her email, and also sms them. I’ve been wanting to sms people lately too.
This shows why Gmail contacts is amazing and also if you sync it. I don’t know if the same goes with Yahoo! or other email services, but to me this is really handy and easy to do.
So in summary, here are the 3 reasons why you should use Gmail Contacts Sync:
- It organizes your contacts.
- It is easier to save contacts, if you are lazy, you can even save contacts with your computer since it’s on your Gmail account.
- It saves time and makes contacting other people better than ever!
Up to now, I am amazed that I was able to sync all my thingy majies and how I am able to use them properly. After all, what is a phone and gadget without saved contacts? It’s not all the games and applications all the time, it’s the feature of being able to keep in touch with the people in your life as well
In my next posts or maybe just so, I will post the tutorials on how to sync Nokia, Blackberry, iOS and Android gadgets to your gmail contacts
