I have an android smartphone, with a google account attached to it. It is a samsung, galaxy phone (s5 I believe), running android OS. I have gone into the account settings, and the google account, and told it to sync the contacts. It says it is syncing, but when I access gmail from the web, there are no contacts showing up in the gmail contacts list.
I am concerned about losing my contacts, should something happen to my phone. Is it possible they are being backed up, even though they don't show up in the gmail contacts?
If this is an indicator that they are not backed up, are there other ways to back up my contacts. This is a verizon phone. Are there any other ways to troubleshoot this, so I can get my contacts to sync with my gmail contacts?
