So, prepare both of your phones for work, begin the process of transferring your contacts from the device (phone) to the device.

The easiest and most obvious way to transfer your contacts with Android a gadget (phone) to another mobile device - use a Google account to which your accounts are linked or linked. For successful copying you need to do the following, you need to synchronize Google services with your phonebook:

  • Your devices must be connected to the same Google account. If the accounts are different, then use other transfer methods;
  • Take the phone and go to settings - account settings and sync and add a Google account (if not added yet);
  • Next, go to the data and synchronization section and check the box next to - synchronize phone contacts;
  • Now you need to enter the settings of the other device (the phone to which you want to copy contacts) and synchronize the contacts.

Another simple way to transfer contacts from an Android device (phone) to a device is to use a Bluetooth wireless connection. To transfer contacts, follow these steps:
