A note to Android users
Please make sure your contacts are being backed up! I recommend synchronizing your contacts with your main Gmail account; the one you used when you set up your phone.
Go into the settings in your contacts, or the “People” app, and choose the default location for your contacts, such as your main Google account. When you go to create a new contact, you’ll be able to select the location of the contact. You can access your Google contacts from www.google.com/contacts in your web browser.
