Backup Assistant not working. Help?
JohnnyHammerstix

So I did a factory reset on my phone and went ahead and used Backup Assistant to restore my contacts. It worked, but very much not as intended. It saved all the numbers as "notes" instead of actual contacts. The numbers are all there but they are not saved as numbers, which means I'll have to go through all 532 contacts and copy/paste each and every one of them to make them work right. Is there a fix to this? Because I'm extremely livid about this right now.

i've never seen notes in ba. are the same contacts in ba as in gmail?

export the gmail contacts as a csv file, then import into ba.

I know I backed them all up to BA but after you pointed it out, it looks like the ones listed only as notes are backed up via Google. I'll try to export them and then import them.
