Syncing, Importing, and Organizing your Android Phone Contacts with Google Account

We are very much close friend with our GOOGLE isn't so? Then why not try to use more of it services along with our next best buddy ANDROID phones. Have you any idea that we can sync, import and organize all our android phone contacts with the Google account? 

You can manage your Google contacts from within your Google account. This will save you from trying around on your mobile phone's keyboard to try to arrange, categorize, create, edit, and delete those contacts.

If you want the non-Google contacts that are already on your Android phone to be migrated to Google contacts, there is no way to do this directly on the phone; instead, you have to do an export/import. You have to export the contacts to a CSV file to your SD card and then import that file into Google.

The contacts on any Android phone can be created in three groups – SIM contact, Phone Contact and Google Account contact. If the new contacts are created in either of Phone or SIM, that cannot be synchronized with the Google account. For the contacts to be synced with the Google account, we need to create the contacts to save to Google account associated with the phone.


(1) From the home screen, tap Contacts.
Note: If the shortcut is no longer on the home screen, tap Apps and tap Contacts.

(2) Tap the Menu key.

(3) Tap Import/Export.

 (4) Tap Export to SD Card

(5) Select OK to confirm

The contacts are now exported to a vCard (i.e. vcf) file in the SD card. 

Once this is done, import the same vcf file back, but import should be done under your Google account.

(6) Open Contacts > Menu > Import / Export > Import from SD Card > Choose your Google account (with

Note: When importing contacts, if prompted, tap to select the desired account the contacts are to be imported into. Now, this has created all the contacts in your Google account on your phone, next step is to sync the same on actual Google account online. Make sure you are connected to internet. 

(7) Go to Settings > Accounts and Sync > Manage accounts, click on your Google account (displayed with your gmail id) > Make sure Contacts is checked > Open Menu > Sync now.
