Google does two things that have caused massive duplication of contacts: 1. If you have anyone with three words in their name, in other words when you combine their forename & surname, if there are more than 3 words, Google decides to put some of the names into the "middle name" field. This changes the contact enough to cause a dup. This will happen with a forename like "George W." also; 2. If you stored someone's address details using the wrong country format for that person, i.e. you used the default US format for someone who lives in Germany, then Google will switch the format for you causing another duplicate when you sync. I gave up trying to sync to both.

Iphone 6 contacts


Could you say it clearly? You mean you lost contacts on iPhone 6, right? Don't worry. If you have previous backup on your iTunes or iCloud, then you can easily restore your photos from backups.

If you don't have backups, maybe iMyfone D-Back can help you, it allows you to recover data from iTunes, iCloud backup or iPhone directly. You can download it for free scan and see whether it can retrieve your contacts. Good luck!

Sync Contacts in Address Book from computer to iPHone.


On your iPhone, make sure that
  • in the Settings app
    • Mail, Contacts...-->iCloud has Contacts enabled (green button)
On your Mac, make sure that
  • System Preferences-->iCloud has Contacts checked.
If the iPhone still doesn't sync,
  • connect the USB cable from the iPhone to the Mac,
  • open iTunes,
  • make sure that "automatically sync iPhone when connected" is checked in the Summary window of your iPhone (in iTunes);
  • and click "sync" in the lower right corner of your iTunes window.

I want to import blackberry contacts to my iPad via Bluetooth. How can I do that?

Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful assistance.

The following sounds complicated but it is very easy if you carefully follow the instructions.

Unfortunately, there is no cable to connect the BlackBerry and iPhone together and a user can't transfer BlackBerry contacts to iPhone directly via USB cable. So, we should export contacts out of BlackBerry and save onto a program, then import the contacts from the program to iPhone.

Things you'll need to transfer BlackBerry contacts to iPhone.

  • Download Google sync on the Blackberry by paying a visit to m.google.com/sync.
  • Synced Blackberry contacts to Google Account. If you are not Google gmail user, please Go to Google and register one. It is rather simple.
  • Export Google account contacts to computer as .csv or .vcf file.
  • Import the .csv or vCard file to iPhone with iPhone contacts transfer.

If you are the first time using Google Sync on BlackBerry. all the contacts from your blackBerry are saved to your Gmail contacts in a group called My Contacts.
Please login your Gmail and Go to "Contacts" option on the left of Gmail account.
Then you'll see a "more" menu. Click it and you'll see a drop-down menu.
Select "Export" contacts.
There are three models to export contacts out of Google account.
1. Export Group "My contacts" to Google CSV format.
Export Google contacts as csv
2. Export Group "My contacts" to Outlook CSV format. Export Google Contacts to Outlook CSV
3. Export Group "My contacts" to vCard format. So that you can import the contacts to Apple Address book or iOS devices.Such as import to iPhone, iPod touch, iPad. Export Group "My contacts" to vCard format

Now, import vCard file to iPhone

You can save the Google account contacts to computer as vCard file and download this iPhone contacts transfer program.
