All contacts can then easily be restored any time by simply opening .vcf file in your mailbox.

This worked great for years and I had given it 5 stars. About a month ago, it quit working. As it was loading, it displayed a pop-up with 2 options, Stop the app or Send feedback. I sent feedback numerous no response. I uninstalled and re-installed numerous times but it didn't help. 😕 This is very simple to use and backs up more contact data fields than others I've tried. BUT, it does not backup groups and worse, does not backup the group data field in the contact.

OUTSTANDING! FAST! ACCURATE! ------- No more need for troublesome & inaccurate Google contact syncing!------- This application does its job perfectly every, single time. ------------It is small, so if you have little storage on the phone, it's a very good choice. (It can be on the SD card, too.) I like how amazingly easy it is to figure out and use. Some apps are quite a project to learn- not this one. And it is FAST! It backed up my bazillion contacts in less than a minute. Then it was polite enough to ask me where it should be sent for safe keeping. ------------ Several days after I installed this, my phone had a brain attack and required transplant surgery. I did not want to use Google synced contacts for a restore because it is always missing some and many are corrupt or missing data. So, I sent my phone an e-mail with the MCBackup I kept on my computer, double clicked it and in less than one minute all of my contacts were back. None were missing nor corrupted. For fun, I made a new backup, nuked the contacts list & tried again. Perfect! Thank You Globile for creating this application and for providing it for us to enjoy!

First of all the ads cover the button to operate the app and I didn't find a way to reveal it. Next the default to limit contacts to only those with a phone number is absurd. Lastly if you are quick enough or can click the tiny part of the button showing behind the add it doesn't property attach the file to the email and I couldn't find the file where it was indicating it was stored. Bottom line useless waste of time.
