    Android Screen Busted - Any Way to Transfer Contacts to New Phone or Mac?

    Hi All,

    The screen on my Samsung phone is completely busted (LCD is broken and screen is totally black) and though I was able to get a new phone and recover photos/files, I did not have my contacts backed up. Is there any way for me to connect the phone to my new phone or Mac and somehow recover the contacts that way? Or any other solutions to recovering the contacts? Thank you!

    On android by default contacts are backed up automatically on your google account unless you specifically disabled this feature. So normally all you have to do is use the same google account on your new phone and the contacts should automatically be there.

    The above method is the easiest way that you should try first.

    There are more complex things you can try if the above does not work for you. For example, if the phone still works except for the screen you might be able to get access to the contacts file on the phone if you were not using encryption by connecting the phone to a PC.

    On Android all contacts are on the Gmail account associated with the phone.
