    Question backup for contacts

    Hey i am about to root a buddies phone for him but we have an issue where all of his contacts are saved to this phone and not his google account. what is the best way to back those up so that he can get them back after the root.

    Why wouldn't you sync contacts and calendar to Google? That really is the easiest way.

    An easy way is to back them up with my backup trial (30 days), root, sign into your google account and restore your contacts from mybackup. After restoring them they will be tied automatically to your google account.

    DO THIS ^^^^^

    - THEN have your friend log in to his GMAIL on a computer.
    - copy the vcf file created on the EVO's sd card to the computer
    - In the GMAIL main screen go to CONTACTS - MORE ACTIONS (should be drop down menu towards center of screen) - IMPORT
    - Import the vcf file to contacts!

    DONESIES!
