As the name suggests, this post is about explaining how to transfer phone contacts from an Android device to iPhone. The process is pretty straightforward but quite tedious so bear with me, it will be over before you know it. The only requirement you have to meet is to have a USB cable for your Android device.
How to Transfer Contacts from Android to iPhone
1. Go to your Android Phonebook, select the Menu icon and touch Manage Contacts.
2. Select Import/Export contacts.
3. Select Export to SD card.
4. Choose your Google account.
5. Memorise the location & name of the .vcf file as you’ll have to retrieve it later.
6. Connect your Android phone to PC and find the .vcf file in /storage/sdcard0/
7. Visit iCloud and log in with your user credentials and select Contacts.
8. Find the Actions Menu in the bottom-left section of the screen and click on Import Vcard.
9. Find the .vcf file and click Open.
Note: If you get the following message you’ll have to go ahead and edit the .vcf file.
10. Right-click on the .vcf file and click on Edit with Notepad++. You can edit with classic Notepad but I recommend the ++ version as it’s much more efficient.
11. Once opened, use Ctrl+F to bring out the search function. Select Replace from the available Tabs.
12. In Find what section type “2.1” and in Replace insert “3.0”. Now click Replace All.
13. Save, revert to iCloud and import the .vcf file again. It should import without problems.
14. Check on your iPhone to see if the contacts have been synced.
