How to sync Gmail contacts to a mobile device

  1. Enable Google Contact 1 way sync in Copper. To do this, go to Settings > Google Sync > check the "Google contact 1 way sync" box.
  2. That's it! Your Copper contacts should now sync to your Gmail contacts, which in turn should sync to your Android device.

    Please note that on a desktop browser, contacts will only show up under the Copper label but on your mobile device they will show up under both the Contacts tab and the Copper label.

  1. Enable Google Contact 1 way sync in Copper. To do this, go to Settings > Google Sync > check the "Google contact 1 way sync" box.
  2. Add your Google Contacts as a contact source on your iPhone:  Directions are here.
  3. Move your "Copper" labeled Google Contacts to your "My Contacts" folder:  Copper syncs your contacts into a Google Contacts folder titled "Copper"
