Google account on more than one phone

Answered
I'm about to get a new phone and Sim. Can I leave my google account on my old phone which is prepaid and open it on my new phone which is post paid? I want to run both phones for awhile and get my contacts via sync onto my new phone.

Re: Google account on more than one phone

I've got 4 handsets with the same accounts on them, works without an issue

Re: Google account on more than one phone

Depending on how you had your contacts stored on your old phone (ie as Google Contacts), they should appear on your new phone within a couple of minutes of logging in.

 

Yes, you should be able to have both phones logged into your Google account at the same time.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
