Transfer iPhone Contacts to a Samsung Galaxy all.

Sync iPhone Contacts With Google Using iTunes:

NOTE:
Using iTunes on a computer connected to the Internet, you can sync your iPhone contacts with your Google account, and then sync the account data with the Samsung device.

  •  Open iTunes on the computer
  •  Connect the iPhone to the computer via USB
  •  In iTunes, click the iPhone and access “Info”
  •  Enable “Sync Contacts With” and select “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu
  •  Sign in with your Google account. Alternatively, click “Configure” and select an existing account
  •  Click “Apply” to begin the sync
  • After the sync is complete, switch to the Samsung phone and register the same Google account used in iTunes
  •  Allow the account to sync contacts with the Samsung device


Share iPhone Contacts from iCloud Backup:

NOTE: In case your iPhone contacts have been backed up on your iCloud account, you can sign in to your account on a computer with Internet access and export the contacts in vCard format for Android use.


  •  Launch the Internet browser on the computer
  • Visit www.icloud.com
  • Sign in with your iCloud account
  • Access “Contacts” and select the contacts you want to share
  • Click “Settings” > “Export vCard”
  • After the vCard is downloaded, perform one of these steps:
  • Launch the Internet browser on the computer and import the vCard to “Google Contacts” or:
  • Connect the Samsung phone to your PC via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage and import its contents to your phonebook via “Contacts”


Using “My Contacts Backup”:

NOTE:
Although the two methods above require a computer with an active Internet connection, alternatively you can share your iPhone contacts using third party apps. My Contacts Backup is an iOS app that can back up and share iPhone contacts via email.

  • Visit the App Store and install “My Contacts Backup” on the iPhone
  • Launch the app and tap “Backup” to create a vCard file of your iPhone contacts
  • After the backup file is done, tap “Email”
  • Compose a new email and ensure the vCard is attached to it
  • Send the email to your own address and switch to the Samsung device
  • Open the email on the Samsung phone and download the vCard attachment
  • Import the vCard to your phonebook using “Contacts”


Using “Send Anywhere”:

NOTE: Send Anywhere is another third party app you can use for transferring contacts. To do this:

  •  Open the App Store and install “Send Anywhere” on the iPhone
  •  Go to the Google Play Store and install the same app on the Samsung device
  •  Launch the app on both smartphones
  •  Tap “Send” > “Contacts” on the iPhone
  • Select the desired contacts and tap “Send”, then choose the desired transfer method on one of the phones and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the process.
