    Hi all,

    At a previous job that I was at for 5+ years, when I synced to Exchange, I didn't realize that it changed my default account for contacts to their exchange server.

    Obviously, everytime I added a personal contact, friend, etc, it was pushed to that work account instead of iCloud!

    The main issue is that I'd like to have these automatically backed up. Unfortunately, I haven't found a good way to bulk move from one group to another.

    1. I saw quite a few apps in the app store, but am not sure which ones to trust. Which would you recommend?

    I also have an Android phone, so finding some solution to make contact management less of a headache would be ideal. (I don't suppose I could tell iPhone to use my Google contacts instead?)

    You actually can sync your Google contacts. Just add your Gmail account to your phone and it'll show up as a group in your Contacts list. If you don't want to do that then you can export your Gmail contacts at then import them on the iCloud website.
