How to store and retrieve contacts Samsung Galaxy Express 3 J120A ?

Nov 7, 2018

I have a Samsung Galaxy Express 3 J120A and would like to be able to store the contacts information online, and update it when I want to or have it do it automatically however that would work, and then be able to load it onto another phone when I want to. Can anyone tell me how to do that or suggest a tutorial explaining how to do it? I have more than one of that type phone and want to move the sim card from one to another to get familiar with and practice doing things like this. Also hopefully to use one phone for a few weeks and update it, then do the same with another, and then a third, and then go back to the first one and hopefully it will retain some of the info so it will only need some updating... Will that work? Also there's a micro SD card I plan to move along with the sim card. Service is with AT&T if that matters much.

Thank you for any help learning this stuff!
Set up the phone to 'sync' your contacts to your google account. The one that is attached to the phone. It can then auto update them and save them to the account. You would then have the ability to download them to any Android device by putting that same account on it, or to even log into the account from say a computer and download the info to it, then transfer (via USB) the downloaded info to an Android device.

Just, a word to the wise, the sync is no guaranty you can't lose the info. Personally I save my contacts (which can be done within the "Settings" in the contacts app itself). It saves a file to the phone, which can then be transferred to a cloud account, google account, saved to a computer, etc. Just be sure you update (resave the info) as you add more contacts. The info is saved as a VCF file. Which can be opened on any Android or even a computer.
