Did exactly what I wanted

I found this app through a Google search. I had an old email account that I didn’t want on my phone anymore because I kept getting junk mail. But when I deleted it, I would lose 92 of my contacts. For some reason those contacts in my phone were associated with that email account. I downloaded this app, ran the backup, and within five minutes had a back up sent to my current email account. I deleted the old email account from my phone and sure enough lost half my contacts. SO I ran the backup from the email and instantly all of my contacts were back! I clicked “add all” and then another prompt came up saying it would add the ones not already in my contacts. So no duplicates!! (I was worried about that) Thank you so so much for creating a solution to my problem!! I will absolutely recommend this app to friends and family.

Worked like a charm

Super easy! For quite a while I’ve been living with contacts split between several accounts and since they weren’t on iCloud I couldn’t migrate them. Most of my contacts were tied to an email account I don’t have anymore but I couldn’t delete the account for fear of losing the contacts so I was just constantly being bugged by password requests because my phone kept trying to connect to the deleted account. This solved everything in like ten seconds.

1. Unsync iCloud contacts and delete local copies
2. Backup remaining contacts on other accounts
3. Turn sync back on and set iCloud to default contacts
4. Load backed up contacts

I haven’t tried it yet but I think this might also be a good way to automatically remove duplicates without losing unique contacts. There were several contacts that I had three instances of and I went through manually deleting all the extras. But when you load the backed up contacts it first asks if you want to merge them with existing ones and then it creates new contacts for the ones it doesn’t recognize. Backup all your contacts then stop syncing everything except iCloud and restore the backup to consolidate them all. Just an idea.

Great App...worked perfectly

I had hundreds of contacts in my iPhone associated to an old work exchange account. Whenever I tried to delete the exchange account, I’d lose the contacts; so, I had to leave the old exchange account until this app changed everything. I downloaded the app, made a backup (less than 1 minute), emailed the backup to my gmail account, deleted the exchange account, and tapped the .vcf file in my email and “viola” contacts were all back. I couldn’t have asked for something easier and more efficient. Great app!!!
