Back up your Mobile Phone Contacts to Google gmail

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Elite

 

After spending 4 hours trying to get my mobile phone to back up on my computer using Outlook I searched the Internet for a better solution. My mobile phone uses Windows Mobile. I found out how to back my contacts up on Google using gmail and I also created a back up on my Thunderbird e-mail software. Google also has a calendar that will sync with the phone. I entered in a number of appointments on the Google calendar, synced it with my phone and it worked. The phone sets off an alarm and the Google calendar sets up a pop up on the PC. It is much easier than it sounds.

MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR CONTACTS LIST FROM YOUR PHONE BEFORE TRYING THIS PROCESS.

You will see this warning throughout the instructions. I tried to back up using Outlook for 4 hours and could not get it to work. If anything you can plug your phone into the PC through the USB and copy everything over to a folder on the PC. Just in case.

Set up a Google e-mail account with gmail.

Https://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount?service=mail&hl=en-us&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2Fmail%2Fe-11-109a5a55d7610df0e7957ac039c47579-ed2a46d7696ce586b7fe29a45c9ba0be71a9c732&type=2&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-bk&utm_medium=ha&utm_term=new%20gmail%20account

 

Set up your mobile phone.

Just follow the instructions and you have a back up of your mobile phone contacts on you gmail account. The list on gmail also sets up for quick efficient printing if you want to keep a hard copy.

The Google calendar is great. I can enter appointments much quicker using the key board on my PC. To sync the PC and phone I use the home WI-Fi connection and the Activesync on my phone. All my contacts from gmail and appointments on my Google calendar are synced to the phone in less than one minute.
