How To Transfer Contacts From Your iPhone To Your Android and Vice Versa




Transferring your contacts: From iPhone to Android
Unsurprisingly, data transfer between the great smartphone rivals is not always easy but, for contacts, at least, there's a fairly simple solution.


 On one of its support pages, Google has explained how to synchronize Gmail, Calendar and Contacts on iPhone and iPad.

But for reference purposes I'll be highlighting the steps below :
For iOS 5 & 6
Open the Settings app on your device.
Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
Select Add Account....
Select Other.
Select Add CardDAV Account.
Fill out your account information in the following fields: ...
Select Next at the top of your screen.
Make sure that the "Contacts" option is turned ON.

Once you have a Google account set up on your Apple device, it will appear in the Email, Contacts and Calendars field, found in Settings. You can then perform the steps listed in the Synchronize Google Accounts step above, and in your Android device you can then easily retrieve all necessary information. 

Alternatively, you could let a third-party app do the work for you.

Transferring from iPhone to Android isn't always easy.

Transferring your contacts: From Android to iPhone
You may decide to leave Android in favor of iPhone: there's no problem with that. In this case, there are plenty of options. In your iPhone settings menu, for example, you will find an entry for mail, contacts and calendar. Here, you can navigate to Accounts > Add account and you will find Google listed.

Tap the "Add account" button then select your Google account.
If you have your Google account synchronized with your contacts already and you select this option – after you sign in, all of your contacts will appear in your iPhone's address book soon after.

Alternatively, Apple has its own Move to iOS app available to help you make the switch, or you could make use of a third-party app to get the job done for you.

Thanks for visiting.
