This is a question. My Android phone is linked with my laptop but so long ago I can't remember who helped me. Now DH has a new laptop which is HP and seems to have to change his addresses. He's lost all his contacts including Facebook and has never been able to email from his iPhone. He's reluctant to ask for help so just accepts it. Who would you suggest to sort it out?
His iPhone should be backed up to iCloud. There are a number of ways to retrieve all of your contacts from your iCloud email address. If he has used his iPhone properly and backed up his contacts and he has an iTunes account he should be able to plug his phone into his laptop go onto his iTunes account and all the contacts will be there they can then be downloaded onto his phone.
I assume he has MAIL on his iphone If he does - go into SETTINGS - there he will see MAIL
Open up MAIL - you will see ACCOUNTS at the top. Open up ACCOUNTS - he needs to have his emails accounts in there -see my 2nd screenshot - I have various emails (see top). If he doesn't, he needs up open up ACCOUNTS and use Add Account
If not - touch ADD ACCOUNT and put in all info asked for.
