More and more, cell phones have become our lifelines to the outside world. A 2009 survey for the U.S. wireless industry revealed that 91 percent of the American population uses cell phones. Losing your phone can be a disastrous event, especially since all your contacts will disappear with your mobile. Backing up your contacts on the Internet is the best way to make sure that losing your phone does not alter your ability to communicate with friends, family and business contacts.
- 1 Open your web browser and go to www.Vodafone360.com. This site allows you to store your contacts online and automatically sync them with your phone, although not all phones are supported.

Enter this in the "Password" field and submit the form. You can now start storing your contacts online.
