Everyone knows the situation: We have many or all contacts locally on our smartphone and want to transfer to another phone or simply save only a backup to the cloud. But how?
There are many providers and possibilities to offer this. We would like to explain this with reference to a Gmail account.
Step 1: setting up the account on the BlackBerry 10 device
When setting up the account, it is important that the contacts are synchronized with. It should therefore be dispensed with the advanced setting method. Instead, the Auto Setup is recommended here.
Step 2: Disable automatic merging of contacts
For BlackBerry OS 10, the default setting for the merging of contacts is activated. However, there are problems when copying linked contacts (especially Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn), so the function should be deactivated and merged contacts should be separated again.
Step 3: Selected contacts Copy
Since I have not saved any local contacts on my BlackBerry, I create a new contact.
After the contacts have been copied to Gmail, the contacts can be viewed and/or edited on all devices connected to Gmail.
