    If you're already on Verizon

    The easiest way to do this is to backup your contacts on your Android phone using Verizon backup assistant before deactivating your phone. When you get your new iPhone you will be able to load those contacts using the iPhone version of backup assistant.

    If you're on another service using an Android phone
    To easiest way to do this is to go directly from your Google contacts to your iPhone using Google Sync. You can find instructions to do this here: Set Up Your Apple Device for Google Sync : Google Sync - Google Mobile Help

    I helped my brother to transfer his contacts from his Android to iPhone and I find this process easier and quicker:

    1) Export your contacts to your SD Card. This will create a VCF File
    2) Connect your Android phone to your pc
    3) Access your sd card from your pc, copy the backup, and paste it in your desktop.
    4) Email the file to yourself on the iPhone
    5) Open the file and this will import the contacts to your iPhone.

    Another way is to bump (app) your contacts. The bump version for Android doesn't have the option to select all of your contacts and send it all together though. You have to check each of the contacts and bump it. It will automatically save your contacts to your iPhone.

    I hope this helps :)
