    Default Backup contacts without using contacts app

    I keep getting the message "android.process.acore" has stopped. I looked around on Google and it would appear the fix involves deleting all my contacts and restoring them, only problem is I can't open my contacts app. How do I back up my contacts without using the contacts app? Do I even need to do this or does anyone happen to know a different way to stop this message from appearing every three seconds?

    Did you find the solution? If not, open System settings > Accounts > Google > sync contacts. That'll backup your contacts to Google for easy restore when you are ready to do so.

    Thanks! I did end up fixing it by booting in safe mode and using the contacts app to back up my contacts, but I appreciate your response. I never thought of that!
