How to Edit Android Phone Contacts on PC/Mac Computer?

A wide range of fashionable and multifunctional Android phones of different makes and models are available on the global mobile device market, which have become a must in people's daily life. You have probably used several cell phones since quite a few years ago, and are familiar with almost all the functions of the devices. But there’re always some problems you’re at your wits’ end to cope with, for as much as your phone itself provides no corresponding solutions. One of the cases occurring at frequent intervals is users’ desire to manage and edit their contacts on a computer for convenience. If you have changed your job and have known some new people, for the purpose of reclaiming more space for storing your new contacts, deleting part of the old ones is in great need. Yet it’s time-consuming to do it manually one by one. It’d be far better if you could transfer them to your PC or Mac, and remove them with fewer clicks.

As I mentioned above, to edit contacts in a batch instead of doing it one by one manualy one by one, you need to transfer them to computer as editable file format beforehand. Well, contacts are stored in the internal phone memory or the SIM card by default, instead of the external flash memory card, SD card, which’s used to store media files, such as images, videos, audios and music. Consequently, they cannot be transferred to the computer for editing as other types of files simply with a USB cable without the assistance of any tools. In order to achieve the convenience to modify, delete or add contacts on the computer with ease, you’re highly recommended to seek help from Coolmuster Android Assistant (for Windows 8/7/XP/Vista) or Coolmuster Android Assistant for Mac (OS X 10.9 or later), a powerful and professional third-party software, to manage your data without difficulty at the flick of a switch.
