Gone were the days when one spends much time to memorize all his/her phone contacts. Others also had a jotter where they write all their important contacts. But in recent time due to the emergence of the modern mobile phone which has the feature of saving contacts on the phones memory or Sim card. People don’t bother themselves any more to do all these because they know they can save the contacts right in their phone. Yes that’s the power of advancement in technology.

But that alone cannot guarantee your contacts safety because you may forget your account password or other issue may arise that may prevent you from having access to your Gmail account and that means all your contacts will be gone.
