    Why is my tablet only syncing one way with google contacts? If I alter my contact on my computer it works and syncs to my tablet but if I alter a contact on my tablet it does not sync with my computer. Any ideas. I have checked every setting I can I think.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like on your tablet, you are entering them into the device and not to Google contacts. If you go to settings and pick contacts to display, you probably have All selected, but your list is split between Google and on the device, sometimes called my contacts. You want them all in Google all the time.

    Thanks for the reply, it's for work and I often have to edit the address so I know for a fact I am in Google Contacts. Funnily enough I have the same issue on my Note 4. This is for my personal contacts. I add a contact and it stays on the phone but does not get synced up to Google. Just changed my phones from Note 3 to 4 and noticed many of my new contacts were not synced. A real pain. Any other thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Samsung Phones get stubborn that way - they want to put things in "My Contacts" and there is no direct setting for changing the default. What does seem to work: On Contacts to Display, Select Google. Then enter a new contact, double checking that its going to google and not into the device. Once you do a couple, it seems to stay with google, as long as you only display the google contacts. As for the ones stuck in your device, you ought to be able to export them to a csv or vcf file and reimport into google contacts.
