Deleting Phone Contacts but NOT Google Account Contacts
Good day! :)
I need help figuring out how google accounts work. I got a phone previously owned by a family member and all his contacts are still in the phone. I was wondering if it is possible to delete all the contacts on the phone but not affect his google account contacts?
Also, if i reformat the phone, will this delete all his google contacts?
Thanks in advance for the answers :)
Re: Deleting Phone Contacts but NOT Google Account Contacts
Welcome to the forums! You can sync the contacts to Google (Settings > Accounts > Google > Contacts > Sync) which will backup to Google. You can then remove the Google Account or Add yours, which will then import your contacts to the device but won't copy to the other account.
