If you added your Google account on your Android phone, but that you cannot see your contacts, this is maybe because there is no “Sync contacts” tab in: Settings > Accounts > Google. To add this tab, install GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk version 6.0 (for some reason the latest version available 7.2 did not work in my case). Then make sure:
- Settings > Apps > Google Contacts Sync > Permission >> enable all
- Settings > Accounts > Google > Remove account + Add your google account
- Settings > Accounts > Menu >> enable auto-sync data
- Settings > Accounts > Google > Sync Contacts >> enable

- Install adb on your computer :
- Install the USB driver to connect your phone to your computer. As its not easy to find the correct driver for your phone, I recommend to install PdaNet+ that will find alone the driver corresponding to your phone :
- Enable USB Debugging on your phone (this should have been done during step 2) :
- Open command line and enter :
>> This is the default folder where adb has been unzipped at step 1.
>> Your phone ID should be displayed, if not go to step 2 and make sure your phone is connected to your computer in USB debugging mode.
adb shell pm getInstallLocation (Android <4.0)
adb shell pm get-install-location (Android 4.x)
>> This results in a numerical value to state where the default install location is (0: phone, 2: external).
adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2 (Android <4.0)
adb shell pm set-install-location 2 (Android 4.x)
>> This sets the default install location to the external storage.
