How to Backup and Restore or Sync Contacts from Google Account on Android phone

If you have a Google account, then your contacts are automatically backed up. In fact, Google will back them up as long as it can find an internet connection and there is enough storage space on the device. If you’ve been using Gmail for a while, then chances are that most of your important information has been synced to the cloud at least once already.

If you don’t want to use a backup from Google or if it’s not available, you can try restoring from iTunes or iCloud instead. Keep in mind that if these backups were created after the issue with Google happened, they may not fix the problem because something could have changed since then such as new contact entries or changes in how those new contacts sync their information.

Or you can just try to manually enter your contacts back into the phone by either searching others in your phone book or by copying and pasting them from a spreadsheet on your computer.

To do this, go to Settings>Accounts & Passwords>Your Google Account>People and select all of the check boxes under “Contacts.” If everything looks good, then log out and log back in and see if they sync up (yes I know there’s no longer an account associated with the device after bypassing FRP but trust me it will work). When you’re done syncing, go back to Accounts & Passwords>Your Google Account again and uncheck those same checkboxes under “Contacts” as previously selected…

If you are still having issues, restore your phone from an iTunes or iCloud backup.

Your contacts should now be restored. If nothing else works, try manually entering each of your contacts back into the phone by either searching others in your phone book or by copying and pasting them from a spreadsheet on your computer. To do this, go to Settings>Accounts & Passwords>Your Google Account>People and select all of the check boxes under “Contacts.” If everything looks good, then log out and log back in and see if they sync up (yes I know there’s no longer an account associated with the device after bypassing FRP but trust me it will work). When you’re done syncing, go back to Accounts & Passwords>Your Google Account again and uncheck those same checkboxes under “Contacts” as previously selected.
