Hi, Edward, our product team has read the log. It seems that the MobileTrans you're using is not the latest one. Thus, could you please upgrade MobileTrans to the latest version? Besides, please tap Contact app on your Sony phone and tap the icon next to the main button to show the menu list. Then, tap "Settings" and check whether you have ticked "Only contacts with phone". If yes, please uncheck it.
My deice is Sony Xperia Z1. And I have mailed you the log file. And one more thing, if I connect my phone to PC through Sony companion and sync contacts in it, I have all my contacts. That means contacts are there in my phone but not visible in the contact list.
Thomas Jones
Edward, could you please tell us what your devices are? could you mind sending us the MobileTrans log that is saved at C:UsersAdministratorAppDataRoamingWondershareMobileTrans. If convenient, please send to this email address :
Same here.... The process is successful, but can't see a single contact in address book. Also, in logs, I can see the contact names.
Thomas Jones
Could you please upgrade MobileTrans to the newest version and click Flip to transfer contacts from Xperia Z1 to the other phone? If the contacts appear on the other phone, I'm afraid that there may be something wrong with the Contact app on your XPERIA Z1.
Hi yes, same here, no contacts on my Xperia Z1, it says contacts transferred but i can't find them anywhere.

ozzy, you know, Note 3 has USB 3.0 cable and USB 2.0 cable. At present, there's a minor problem of compatibility when connecting Note 3 with USB 3.0. Thus, please try to connect your Note 3 to computer with the connector of USB 2.0. It works.
trying to copy my contacts from my i4 to my new SS note3 but the latter fails to connect. what am I doing wrong?
