So are you looking for an easy way to backup your iPhone contacts just in case you lost them or something, sometimes you find your iPhone crashed or freezing and you probably afraid to restore your device because you will lose everything from iPhone contacts, images and etc... Today I am going to show you a very easy way to quickly backup your iPhone contacts without even needing to use iCloud..
I am saying it again, If you don’t back up your data, don’t complain when all 975 images of the past year of your baby’s life have suddenly disappeared from your iPhone. Back that sh#@ up! Don’t be a fool.
Now if don't want to use iCloud to back up your contacts, but want to secure the phone numbers of all those ladies you will never call back, there is a way to do it and it is just about the easiest thing you could ever do.
So here's what should you to backup your iPhone contacts without needing to use iCloud, just follow these instructions:
- Download My Contacts Backup from the App Store for free. [iTunes link]
Just after you install the app on your iPhone, launch it and tap on "Backup"
Done, as you can see from the picture above, the app is backing up about 864 contacts stored on your iPhone, with just a few minutes all of your contacts will be backed up on your iPhone.
the great thing about an app like this is that the contacts are saved as vCard files. The vCard, or vcf extension, is the file that makes your contacts look like business cards. The particular vcf files in My Contacts Backup are exact matches for your iOS files. So when the vCard is reopened, it will save exactly like the original, with no formatting issues.
Once you’ve tapped the “Backup” button, an email will be created with the vcf file attached. You can then send it to yourself and use it as backup for all of your iOS devices. All you have to do is tap on the file in your email while using your iPhone iPad or iPod touch. Once it is downloaded, tap it again. You will see all of your contacts listed exactly as they would be on your iOS device. If you have lost your contacts for some reason and need to add them to your device, just tap “Add All Contacts.”
If your iPhone ever takes a powder on you, you can be sure to have all of your contacts securely saved in an email file. I even added my iPhone’s contacts to my Gmail contacts so they would be the same.
You can download My Contacts Backup
for free in the App Store. However, there is a paid version for $1.99. According to the developer’s website
, the PRO version
includes no limits on how many contacts you can backup. However, I was able to backup 824 contacts from my iPhone with no issue using the ad-supported free version.
So what do you think ? Have you tried using the app ?
