Can it simply be done by connecting with the USB-mini USB? I am not sure how to do this. Then, if something drastic happened and I need to reverse the process, how would that be done?

Any help is appreciated.

It should back up automatically if you have a gmail account it sends them to your on line account at gmail.

i thought the contacts were auto-synced to Google, so in the event of an issue you can pull the contacts down from Google and be up and running?

if you want to just click on contacts and then hit menu and import export, then export your contact list, and you can copy the file to your computer.

That is what I was wondering.

I was not aware of what gnxtra87 and sir referenced. I guess I left out the most important part, then. I took my old phone in to Best Buy and they transferred that info into the Droid. I just checked my account online at Gmail and it does not show them.

How can I get them backed up or transferred to the account or update my account? With the import/export, will that function mean you are transferring to a card or HD and not to the account?

Sorry for the lack of info provided.

TxDoc,
If you have a Google Account, especially if you use Gmail as your primary email, under Settings>Accounts make sure Google is turned ON and Contacts Calendar and Gmail are also all checked.

Thanks unix.punkx. After I enabled them, the contacts that are on my Droid (which were transfered from my old phone) do not show up on my gmail account thru my pc. I must either not be describing the situation correctly or not understanding.

Yupp, this is vary simple one. You can easily make up the contacts back up and transfer it with via Bluetooth or usb. Method is go to your contacts press menu and select location of it and then start up this. Depending upon your phone specifications and no of contacts, your back up will made.

Make sure your sync is turned on. You can also manually push a sync. As long as contacts is selected, your contacts will sync with Google.

Go to Settings/Google then select your email account. Then ensure the box next to " Sync Contacts" is checked.

Well, just for safety's sake,I suggest you to use an andriod file manager. Things would be very easy once you use an app to help, and I always use Amacsoft Andriod Manager to help me to transfer contacts from andriod phone to computer. Have a try, good luck!

If you're Samsung phone, I suggest you try Samsung kies, or Google Gmail account to transfer contacts to computer.

I think a backup tool is more helpful. Download one.
