    Using iTunes to Transfer Contacts:

    Assuming that you have access to a computer with Internet and iTunes installed, you can use the aforementioned application to sync your iPhone's contacts with a Google account. In turn, this allows you to easily import the contacts from the account, onto your LG Lucid 3. Synced contacts include their image, email address, phone number and all other contact notes.

    1. Launch iTunes on your computer
    2. Connect your iPhone to the PC using the proprietary USB cable
    3. Once connected, the iPhone will appear in iTunes. Click on it to view the device's summary page
    4. Go to the "Info" tab and mark the "Sync Contacts With" check box
    5. From the drop-down menu, select "Google Contacts"
    6. Register your Google account in iTunes. If you've already registered an account, go to "Configure" and choose an account from the list
    7. To commence the syncing process, click "Apply"
    8. Once the process is done, register the same Google account on your LG Lucid 3, as the one used in iTunes. NOTE: if you need to add an account, go to "Settings" > "Accounts"
    9. Allow Google to sync contacts with your Lucid 3
    Transferring Contacts Using iCloud:

    The iCloud backup service can be used to transfer your iPhone contacts over to an Android smartphone. As long as you've used iCloud on your smartphone before, your iPhone contacts should already be backed up on your iCloud account. By accessing it using a computer connected to the Internet, you can export your contacts in the form of a vCard file. To do so:

    1. Open the Internet browser on your PC and visit iCloud
    2. Sign in with your iCloud account
    3. Click "Contacts" and select the contacts that you want to share
    4. When ready, click the "Settings" icon located in the lower-left side of the screen
    5. Select "Export vCard" and wait for your computer to download the VCF file
    6. Import the file to "Google Contacts", or alternatively, connect the LG Lucid 3 to your computer via USB and copy the vCard file to the "sdcard" directory. Then, launch the "People" app, tap "Menu" and select to import contacts from the SD card.
    Transferring Contacts using "My Contacts Backup"

    Assuming that you want / need to transfer your contacts without access to a computer, you can use third party applications in order to perform the task. "My Contacts Backup" is an iOS app that can back up and send your iPhone contacts to the LG Lucid 3 in the form of a vCard file, via email. To do so:

    1. Visit the App Store and install "My Contacts Backup" on your iPhone
    2. Open the application and tap "Backup". This will create a VCF file containing all your iPhone contacts
    3. After the file is created, tap "Email" to attach it to a new email
    4. Enter your own Gmail address as the recipient for the email, and send it
    5. On the LG Lucid 3, open the email and download the VCF file attached to it
    6. Using the "People" app and the "Import from SD" function, import the vCard file's contents to your phonebook
    Using "Send Anywhere" to Transfer Contacts:

    Last but not least, you can use "Send Anywhere" in order to transfer your contacts from the iPhone over to the LG Lucid 3, through a peer-2-peer connection. Send Anywhere is an iOS and Android application, and using this method you can transfer your contacts without needing a computer:

    1. Visit the Google Play Store and install "Send Anywhere" on the LG Lucid 3
    2. Install the application on your iPhone, via the App Store
    3. Open the app on both smartphones
    4. Pick up the iPhone and tap "Send" > "Contacts"
    5. Choose the contacts that you want to share and tap "Send"
    6. Lastly, select the desired method of sharing. You can select "Generate QR Code" on your iPhone, in order to create a code that can be scanned with the Lucid 3's camera. Another method would be to tap "Receive" on the LG smartphone, and type in the randomly generated transfer code from the iPhone
