Want to transfer your contacts from an Android phone to your Apple iPhone? It was a bit of a chore for me, but this is how I did it.
Note: This tutorial assumes you are syncing your iPhone contacts with iCloud.
- On the Android, open the “Contacts” app.
- Select the “Menu” icon. You should have an option somewhere in here for “Export to .vcf file“. You may have to select “Settings” for this option to appear.
- You should now have a contacts.vcf file created on the device that contains all your Android contacts. Email this file to yourself from the Android as an attachment, or connect your Android to your PC to transfer it over to your computer.
- The contacts.vcf file will need to say it is “version 3.0″in order to transfer it over to the iPhone. To do this, open the “contacts.vcf” file in a text editor like Wordpad, and replace all instances of 2.1 with 3.0, then save the file.
- Login to the iCloud website, then select “Contacts“. You can drag and drop the contacts.vcf file over to the list of contacts to import them.
Hopefully, this process has worked smoothly for you and you are able to now see your contacts on your iPhone. Please share your experience in the comments section below.
