    Hi friend,

    Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to sync contacts from the gmail account:-

    1. With the Lumia phone the process is simple, all you need to do is go to Settings Tab.

    2. Email+accounts which will give you 5 options:-

    a. Add an account.

    b. Windows Live.

    c. Google.

    d. Facebook.

    e. Twitter.

    3. Choose Google and set up your credentials for the accounts.

    4. Enter and the device will do the rest.

    Note that the syncing process will take a few minutes depending on the amount of information it has to collect from Google, like contacts, emails, Tasks, calender etc.

    Your contacts will appear in the people tab.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you...

    Dear guest,

    Contacts are one of the most important things in a phone. And usually one ends up being lost if the contacts from your phone are lost ot erased. Now to avoid this one can have them backed up. Although there are various ways of backing up contacts, like a pc or so.. I will tel you how to back up them in your google account as that is what you have asked for.

    1. Tap on settings.
    2. Add your email id at accounts+email
    3. You will have to enter your password as well.
    4. Once that you have added your email I.e google id in your case your mail box will be displayed at the start screen.
    5. Tap on the google id that you have created and let it synchronise.
    6. All your contacts and such info will be synchronised.

    Note: your battery should not be on the power saver mode..

    Thank you...

    The backing up process is quite simple,

    in your lumia, there must be SETTINGS option, click that,
    find BACKUP option and click,
    you will be asked questions about the files to be back up, and the terget to write them,
    provide those, whichever destination you want the backup copy to be stored, and the mobile OS will do that.
