    Hi Guys

    In a nutshell, I have added a gmail and outlook account on my account - with contacts being synced to phone.

    I want to now remove these accounts, however it warns that contact data will be removed if I do so.

    How do I make it that, all of the contacts are changed into iOS contacts, or are attached to my iOS account, so that un-syncing Gmail/Outlook does not result in loss of contacts?

    Thank you :)

    Ok I found a work-around.

    Downloaded app "Backup Contacts", made a backup. Un-sync'd Gmail and Outlook - and redownloaded/merged contacts.

    Simples ;).

    Got a link to the app, I got a bunch of dodgy results googling, and wondering which one i can trust.
