    I accidentally moved all my contacts which I stored on my device to samsung account. I know i can just show my contact using samsung account, but how can I sync or copy contact list from samsung acc to my device ? I tried sync, still empty list on my device, tried backup and restore, still empty list. Please help

    Thx

    Hmm, I'm not sure of the exact answer. But, a better solution would be to move your Contacts to your email account. Something like GMAIL, Outlook.com etc. Why? When you move your account to ANY device, you automatically sync all your email, contacts and calendar...

    My gmail contact is a mess, every email I've ever emailed or received are stored as my contact.

    Same with my exchange, which is only for work contact.

    Log into GMAIL online and go to settings. There is an option to turn off adding everyone and their mama to Contacts. Thus adding only those that you want

    Seriously, for the long term, I'd take the time to correct the Gmail Contacts. It would be worth while...

    I don't use Samsung account for Contacts or anything actually. But as a test, open a Contact, click on More and Share. From there can you select another account or the device to save it to?
