import google contacts to android emulator

Postby chitgoks » Wed Sep 14, 2011 9:32 am

so i used google api as the emulator so my gmail account can be added to it. however, the sync does not work. i want to transfer my contacts to the android emulator to do some testing.

is this possible? coz there seems to be no option or am i missing something? thanks

That is not possible, Contacts API only returns contacts if a Google account is signed-in. Google requires a unique ID to identify the device, so you can only test that API on a handset.
