    You can transfer your contacts from the iPhone 5 to your HTC Droid DNA by using iTunes and Google/Gmail sync. You only need to have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer and a Gmail account.

    Synchronizing Your Contacts from the iPhone 5 to Gmail via iTunes

    1. On your computer, open iTunes.
    2. Then connect your iPhone to the computer via the USB cable.
    3. From your devices list on iTunes, select the iPhone 5.
    4. In case you are syncing and backing up your data using iCloud, change that to using your PC.
    5. Then click on the Info tab.
    6. You’ll see a Sync Contacts with option, click on that and select either Google Address Book Contacts or Google Contacts.
    7. In the Google ID field -> enter your gmail address.
    8. In the Password field -> enter your password.
    9. Then click OK.
    10. Your iPhone 5 will be synchronized.

    Since the HTC Droid DNA is an Android device, Google sync should be enabled by default, thus your contacts should populate in just a few minutes.

    In case your contacts are not synchronized after a few minutes, then follow the next steps to add an email account and enable synching:

    1. From the Home screen, open the Notification panel and tap Settings.
    2. Then go to Accounts & sync -> tap the plus sign (+) and select the account type you wish to add. In our case it would be Google.
    3. Then just follow the on-screen steps to enter the necessary account information.
    4. To sync your accounts automatically, from the Home screen open the Notification panel.
    5. Then go to Settings and tap Accounts & sync.
    6. Tap Auto sync to switch it to ON.
    7. And that’s it! You should now have the contacts from your iPhone 5 transfered to your HTC Droid DNA!

    Nice post. Besides the way you offered in the post, we can also use phone transfer app to transfer contacts from iPhone 5 to htc droid dna like this:
    Step 1. Open the installed software on the computer. After that, get the two devices connected to the computer via two USB cords.
    Step 2. Different file folders of the these two devices will be displayed on the top panel. You can then enter each tabs to choose the files you want to transfer from one phone to the other.
    Step 3. Tick out the wanted files on the corresponding columns and then click on the right option to begin the file transfer. Finally, just wait for the process to complete.
