Gmail Restore Contact

Always worried that one day you might just loose all of your contacts in Gmail. No need to worry anymore with Gmail Contacts Restore. Now Restoring your Contacts is a thing of the past.

Restore contacts

If you make changes to your contacts that you want to undo, you can restore your full contacts list to an earlier saved version. This allows you to undo changes like:
  • Recovering contacts that have been accidentally deleted
  • Restoring contacts after an unsuccessful sync
  • Undoing a recent import
  • Undoing a recent merge
To restore your contacts to a previous version, just follow these steps:
  1. Click Contacts.
  2. From the More actions drop-down menu, choose Restore contacts.
  3. Choose the time you'd like to revert your contacts list to (e.g. 10 minutes ago, one hour ago, one week ago, etc). We suggest that you also make a note of the time that you restore your contacts, in case you'd like to return to where you started.
  4. Click Restore. You'll see a confirmation at the top of the screen when the rollback is complete.
To undo a restoration:
  • When the operation completes, a notification bar will appear that gives you the opportunity to immediately undo the restore. This notification bar will disappear if you leave Contacts or make edits to your contacts.
  • If the notification bar is no longer there, you can always re-run the Restore Contacts tool to take you back to where you started. Just set the tool to take you to the time just before you started the whole process.

BlueTooth Horror

Here's a very interesting Bluetooth experience.

I was driving by on the Highway and my phone which is connected to my car Bluetooth went off.
What happened next, just amazes me, someone changed the user ID on the Bluetooth and cloned my id to the car Bluetooth like nothing happened. Even though nothing was compromised a threat is still present. Anyone with the right tools can easily tap into your Bluetooth device and clone your phone, copy your personal contacts, retrieve personal information stored on your phone and if you have bank applications, even steal you banking passwords.
Bluetooth has no guard against these threats yet and it could be sometime before you ever do see this. So if you don't use your Bluetooth device on your phone, just turn it off until you need it.
