Acer Liquid Z530 - Contacts - Contact transfer from your old Android device to your new Android device - Step 1
  • Transferring your contacts from your old to your new Android device is quite simple.
  • By linking contacts to your Gmail address, you have all your contacts available everywhere and always, even if your phone, and thus your SIM card, is stolen.
  • You will need a Google account (Gmail address) for this. Make sure you have configured it beforehand for synchronisation with your old device.
  • Linking your contacts is not always done automatically, so follow these steps on how to add them manually.
