Hi I use an android and use my sim as a contact number store (my gmail has thousands of contacts only 1% of which are people i know - so please don't ask me to use google).

What is the best way to store those name and numbers?

I guess backing up to micro SD would be good (i can then transfer to a computer) or even better cloud (not sure of the implications) ... so let's say best microSD backup?

A 2nd Gmail account or an outlook.com account?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Clear the rubbish out of Google Contacts, then you won't have to worry about it.

Create a group in Gmail and store all your contacts in that.  Most phones will allow you to filter contacts and only show groups you select.

I do this with my Aussie based contacts, when I go over there from NZ I just enable the group.  If they happen to ring me it still shows me whose ringing rather than just a number.
