I'm getting a Contacts error

"Gmail is temporarily unable to access your contacts"

Try again in a few minutes while we work to fix the problem.

While we're fixing it, you can still email people in Gmail by typing their full email address.

"Can't update contact"

If you get this error, you might be trying to save too many contacts or too much info for one contact.

You can't save more than:

  • 25,000 contacts (or 20 MB, photos not included).
  • 128 KB per contact
  • 1,024 characters in a contact field (except "Notes")
