Android Cell Phone Help
« on: December 01, 2014, 02:49:06 PM »
My grandfather just got a Galaxy s4 and his contacts are on his phone but not attached to his Google account. I can't figure out how to get them there. It says to export them but I don't see that option anywhere! It's a Galaxy s4 international version.

i had the same issue with the s4 recently. Export them to usb even if u dont have a usb. Then import them to google form usb it will automatically find it.

My issue is I don't see an export/import option anywhere. I can't find it where it should be.

go to your contacts, then click the button on the bottom of the screen for options.

No, and I'm pretty tech savvy and use an android myself. Must be something with the international version. That's al I can think of.
 Meanwhile I just used an app to back it up and imported it to his gmail account. Crazy phone.

That didn't work. And from past experience it doesn't. Only adds google contacts to phone not vice versa in my experience. Not sure why.

Wasn't letting me do that either. Like I said I worked around it but not sure what was going on.

My S3 charges ridiculously slowly, gains around 15% an hour.  I am using an oem charger.  What else could be the issue?
