Can you import Contacts from Gmail to Firefox OS?

It appears that you can only import Contacts from a SIM card or Facebook. I'm assuming that this means you cannot import or sync Contacts from Gmail. Is this correct?

Re: Can you import Contacts from Gmail to Firefox OS?

At this moment, it is not possible on the ZTE Open. We are working on making this possible. In the meantime you can check for updates.

Please check for updates by following these instructions:

Note:Updates will only download over Wi-fi to prevent data usage charges.

  1. Open the Settings application by tapping the Settings App (small) icon.
  2. Tap the Device Information button.
  3. Tap the Check now button.
  4. A notification will appear in the notication bar if an update is available.
  5. Swipe down the notification bar to get the utility tray and install the updates.

Did this fix your problem? Please report back to us!

Thank you!

It didn't work but you can do so using the app importer ( https://marketplace.firefox.com/app/importer?src=search ), which worked for me. Cheers,

I have a ZTE and the only contacts that can be synced are Facebook contacts.
