    Hello,

    A friend of mine just received his new Hongmi. We copied the contacts from his old phones to Hongmi memory, but I cannot seem to find how to sync them with Google.
    All the sync options are switched on, but the conttacts doesn't seem to go to Gmail.

    Can somđÁbody help ?


    Thank you.

    Google services aren't installed by default. Install them with Market.

    The contacts as long as you create an account, for example when you execute the market for the first time, you should be able to sync them. Go to contacts, choose menu option and export the contacts to gmail account

    As I'm sure you can understand I can't guess, nor anyone, your level of experience.
    As you open a thread you an issue and your find the solution for it, you could share it so that others can see if needed

    Of course.

    1. Export all contacts to an SD card.
    2. Reset the phone.
    3. Activate Google account on the phone.
    4. Import the contacts from the SD card.
    5. It will the ask me where to save the contacts.
    6. Choose Google account.
    7. Eureka!
