How to Backup Cell Phone Contacts


My main worry about losing my phone has not much to do with the physical phone itself – but rather the fear of losing my long list of contacts which I have built up over the years.

Zyb is a free international service which allows you to backup and/or sync your phone’s contacts and calendar to their site. After giving it a whirl, I would have to say this is by far the most elegant and smooth backup I have ever done with my phone. The step by step guidance of the site was excellent, and in under 5 minutes I had backed up all 400+ of my contacts.

More than a mere backup tool, this is an excellent way to transfer contacts across phones, and you’ll never have to go through the pain of manually entering in contacts on a new phone again. Zyb currently also allows sharing and syncing of contacts with other users, and now even supports importing from other sources like Outlook and Google Calendar.

Don’t fret over lost contacts – Backup your phone and sleep easy.

  1. If you are using Verizon and are a “MyAccount” customer you can use Backup Assistant (normally $1.99/month) for free. You can schedule automated backups – mine happen in the wee hours of the morning. You can also log in and manually enter numbers rather than using the keypad on your phone. Print lists and other features are available.
