Elegant backup for your smart phone contacts

Few days ago I dropped my iPhone and cracked it. Though the iPhone still works, I decided it will be good to have a backup for my contact on my desktop. Fancy backup can be achieved in the following two step procedure: first synching your contacts information with facebook, and second, sending yourself an excel file with full details of your mobile contacts, phone number, date of birth, home page, work address and other details extracted from their facebook page. The process takes only few minutes and is free.

The following app will take care of the first step, it is free.

sync.me appThe idea is that before you deliver the excel file, you fill it with the facebook details of the person.

Once done, use the following app to send yourself an excel sheet with your contacts.

Follow the instruction and send yourself a “zip” file with images of your contacts, and their complete facebook details in an accompanied excel file. This app is also free unless you have more than 150 contacts in which case you will have to get the premium version.
