Are your contacts backed up?

ContactsTo put it another way, are you able to access your contacts from all your devices (desktop and mobile)? This is another no-brainer that takes only a few minutes to setup no matter what device and platform you are using.

You can choose to sync your contacts via iCloud or Google whitch are the most common options.  Plenty of other services also exist to allow contact syncing and backup. Once you have set this up, you will have no issues moving to a new device as all your contacts will just sync to your new device once you login. Again, this is something you should enable if you have not yet done so. For some tutorials and directions on how to do this on your device, see some of the links we have provided below.

Pro tip: only use one syncing service to avoid conflicts. Our top pick is your Google/GMail account followed by iCloud as a close second if you use Apple. And, yes, you can sync google contacts with your Apple just fine. While you’re setting this up, why not also enable calendar syncing?

Some helpful links:

Apple: Managing iCloud Contacts, Calendars or reminders

Google: Sync GMail, Contacts, Calendar and Chrome

Once your contacts are being backed up, you’ll be able to sync or access them from any of your devices (computer or mobile).
