    Using a Google Account:

    NOTE: Using a Google account you can sync the contacts on the SGSIII, after which you can re-sync the account data with the LG Lancet.

    1. On the SGSIII, register your Google account
    2. Press “Menu” and go to “Settings
    3. Tap “Accounts” > “Google
    4. Tap the “email address” or “user name” at the top of the screen
    5. Enable “Sync Contacts” and tap “Sync now
    6. Switch to the LG Lancet and register the same Google account
    7. Access the “Settings” menu
    8. Scroll to “Personal” and tap “Accounts & sync
    9. Select the account and allow it to sync contacts with your LG device

    Using the “Contacts” App:

    NOTE: You can use the default Contacts application to export your SGSIII contacts in VCF file format. Then you can transfer the file to the Lancet and import it using LG’s Contacts application.

    1. Open “Contacts” on the SGSIII
    2. Access the “Contacts” tab and press “Menu
    3. Tap “Contacts to display” > “All contacts
    4. Press “Menu” > “Import / Export"
    5. Tap “Export to SD card” and make sure your remember the file name for future use before tapping “OK
    6. Open the email application and compose a new email
    7. Attach the vCard file to the email and send it to your own address
    8. Switch to the LG Lancet and open the email, then download the attached vCard file
    9. Open “Contacts” and press “Menu” > “Import / Export
    10. Locate the downloaded vCard file and select it to import its contents

    NOTE: After you create the vCard file on the SGSIII you can transfer it to the LG Lancet by connecting both smartphones to a computer via USB. Then use “Contacts” app to import the vCard, as detailed above.

    Using “Send Anywhere”:

    NOTE: Another method for contact transfer involves third party applications such as “Send Anywhere”. This app can transfer contacts and other types of files using a P2P connection. The process doesn’t require access to a computer.

    1. Visit the Google Play Store and install “Send Anywhere” on both smartphones
    2. Open the app on both devices
    3. Tap “Send” on the SGSIII and select “Contacts
    4. Mark the contacts you want to share and tap “Send
    5. Lastly, select a transfer method. You can tap “Receive” on the LG device and enter the randomly generated transfer code from the SGSIII, or tap “Generate QR Code” on the Samsung device and scan the code with the LG Lancet’s camera to begin the transfer

    Actually, there're many special designed android data backup apps could transfer everything between your phone and computer, you can connect your two phones to computer separately to transfer data between them.

    Samsung to LG data transfer tool can help us transfer contacts beween Samsung and LG phone directly. After connecting both of them to computer via usb cables, the tool will scan out both of them. A short time later, all contacts will be displayed on program window. Just check and choose contacts you want to transfer.

    The easiest and fastest way to transfer contacts from one to another is via Bluetooth. pair and connect both phones and go to contacts > settings > share > select all, and select the device you want to send it to (maybe your phones settings is different look in the contacts setting or in the bluetooth settings and you will find it)
