   Do you own a flip phone? Is your contacts backed up.  What did you do to avoid loosing all your contacts should you loose your device, or in a scenario where the device breaks in half?

   Verizon Cloud? Gmail contacts? Export all to an SD card or another location aside for the actual phone.
 Hope you have some sort of backup in place.
   
  Been asked in the past few weeks from multiple people to help them recover their contacts from a broken device or a damaged device.
 They have to go through the hassle of repairing the device just to recover the contacts, assuming they don't want to repair the device.
 
   Please take the survey or post back here and wouldn't mind helping out if I can..

Put your SIM card into another Verizon cloud compatible phone and they should download automatically

If you tell me how that's feasible I'll add that choice.

From the few people I know who have it that way. It has a mind of its own. Sometimes it works and sometimes not.

Hence we have this thread to prevent that!
 I think exporting them to a vCard file, and then importing them to Google contacts is the best option.

True, thats why its always best to have at least one other option. Sometimes you need to hard reset the phone to force it to work

Number one is Export all your Contacts.
Or Bluetooth them to a device that you can export the Contacts from.
 Then once you have that, connect phone to a computer and allow to transfer files.

Anyone know how to do this with Orbic? I got a new phone and am having trouble with it and I think I threw out my older phones that the bluetooth did work with.

Any ideas to retrieve contacts from an LG classic flip with a broken screen? Someone asked me to help get their contacts back but I couldn't figure out any way to do it.
