Sometimes when you format the device or buy a new Android device your contacts are not on your phone, then you get worried about getting your contacts back. Here’s How to Transfer contacts from one Phone to another or from the previous phone to a new mobile phone in some ways.
First, sign in with your Google and add an account to your phone, so that you can use your device properly. Your data such as calendar dates, Chrome Web data, contacts, docs, etc. are saved in a Google account. You can back up your Google anytime.
