Yes, I did ask you previously to check the first step. Did you see it? Here it is again:

Can you go to Settings on your phone, then go to Accounts option, then do you see if your correct gmail email address is showing there?

Also, how many email address(es) are showing there?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The correct email is showing
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
2 are showing
Email technician: Viet - Email Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

This is a complicated issue as Samsung / Best Buy couldn't even fix, and typing back and forth will take time, so please be patient with me.

Is the other a gmail email address also, or yahoo, hotmail, aol, etc.?

What's the model of your Samsung phone?

Email technician: Viet - Email Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

In Settings > Accounts tap on your correct gmail email address (that has the contacts), then tap on option Account sync, or menu , sync options, etc., or what are the options do you see there? If you see the Contacts option (along with other options, such as Apps data, Calendar, Docs, Drive, Gmail, etc.), can you enable the Contacts option?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It says sync email
Email technician: Viet - Email Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

There should be more options, such as Sync Gmail, Sync Contacts, Sync Docs, Sync Drive, Sync Calendar (the word Sync may not be showing in front of each items.) Do you see those items in a list?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no under accounts it says email exchange google office
Email technician: Viet - Email Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

In Settings > Accounts (> Google if available), you said it shows two gmail email addresses. Is that correct? If so, tap on the gmail email address you want, and select the menu / sync option there.

- Please click on the website below for the illustration of the Sync list:
