Transferring your contacts from your Android device to a computer may be a great idea if you want to keep the contacts safe just in case the phone gets lost or ends being damaged. While things such as videos, music and pictures can be moved from a phone to a computer by simply copying and pasting them, contacts can’t simply be copied directly to a computer. But that should not be something to worry you because here is the best solution on how to transfer contacts from Android to computer (Mac or Windows).
There are apps that you can use to transfer your contacts easily, with one of the best ones being MobileTrans for Mac (or MobileTrans for Windows).
It is a user friendly tool that allows you to transfer your contacts in a single click. You can transfer contacts including name, title, number, email address, etc. It is especially designed to transfer contacts and other data or files between mobile devices that are running Android OS and iOS. The following are its key features.
● It allows cross-platform transfer, and it does not affect the quality of the contacts or data that is being transferred. There will be no cases of missing names, numbers, email addresses and other contacts details when using this app.
● It allows you to create a backup of your contact details on your Mac and restore them whenever you need without quality loss. The SMSs, names, phone numbers and other contact details will be the same as the original ones when you restore them later.
● It is supported on over 3500 phones as well as different networks. Whether you have a Samsung, LG, HTC, Nokia, Blackberry, or any iOS enabled device, you can be able to use this app to transfer your contacts from that device to a computer successfully.
● It can also enable you to erase your old phone permanently for security reasons. If you are selling your phone to someone, it is important to make sure that the private information that you do not want the buyer to gain access to is deleted completely.
