How to Backup Samsung Contacts to PC

Why Do We Need to Back Up Our Samsung Contacts?

Many of us tend to store the numbers in the handset or the SIM card. And seldom do we take precaution to prevent them from losing. There are actually several situations that we may get the contacts missing forever. Factory reset, accident deletion, phone broken, to name a few. That could be really knotty if you don't have the original data in your computer or Google account.

What Do We Do to Save the Address Book?

Two ways are recommended based on my own experience—Samsung Kies and Mobile Transfer. They are both excellent tool to back up your Samsung contacts with extremely easy steps.

Now, follow this guide and pick the one that suits you most.
 


Part One: Do a Samsung Contact Backup with Samsung Kies


Samsung Kies is a file manager for you to keep the phone data in the computer and restore them. With it, you can deal with six kinds of contents including contacts, music, photos, videos and podcast.

Step 1.Run Samsung Kies and Connect Samsung Handset to PC
Download and install the software first. When you open it, the interface will be the same as below.

Then, connect your device to the computer. You may be promoted to update the firmware if there is a new version. Press "Cancel".

Note: The file types under the name "GT-I9300" are the ones that you can save while those under "Library" are backups you have done before.

Step 2.Preview Samsung Address Book and Store Them
Click "Contacts" as the picture shows. On the right side are the details including "Display name", "Phone number", "Group" and "Email". Tick the box on the upper left to select all of them. Or, you can only check the needed ones. After that, press "Save to PC" on the toolbar and tap "OK".

Mobile Transfer can be used to copy data between two Android devices or between a phone and a computer. So, we can move the files we want to PC.
