    Hi, does this sync including phone-saved contacts? because there are only few contacts in my sim card and the rest are saved in the phone/device.

    Awaiting for your prompt reply.

    Thank you in advance

  • It works quite different in Q10. I cant choose what to sync. Especially contact (which I am interested in) :/
