How to Transfer Contacts to an SD Card

By Susan Reynolds

Your cell phone probably has many contacts on it. If something happens to your phone or if you lose it, you will lose all your data, including your entire "Contacts" list. One way to prevent this from happening is to back up your contacts. You can transfer contacts to an SD card for storage or to put the "Contacts" list on your computer. There are many third-party software applications that will help you transfer any type of data from your cell phone onto an SD card.

Step 1

Remove the SD card from the cell phone and insert it into your computer's SD card slot.
