    Due to a lack of understanding I have saved all my contacts as "local contacts". Is there a way I can up-date all of my contacts so they are now saved on Google account? I have a new Priv (old phone is a Priv as well) and I want to transfer all my contacts, calander, SMS chats..... to my new Priv, and it appears the easiest way to do this (and also keep existing SMS chats) is to have all contacts saved under google account.

    Easiest way would be to export them all, and import them into Google on your computer.

    Then delete the local contacts off the device.

    Use the Content Transfer app for SMS after migrating your Contacts as I explained.

    Should be able to go to Google Contacts on your phone, switch accounts to your local account, and Google should ask you if you want to back-up/move the contact to Google.

    Once you've done that, log into Google Contacts on a computer and you can clean everything up by deleting what you don't want, merging contacts, etc...

    Unfortunately that app only transfers a small amount of texts. I believe 3500. Which sounded like a lot until I did it and it warned me that I'd be missing 40,000 texts! I never delete them as I use my phone for business and like to have the history.
