    2. Open iTunes on the computer and go to “Info
    3. Enable “Sync Contacts With

    5. Click “Apply” to start the sync
    6. After the sync is done, switch to the Motorola phone and sign in with the same Google account used in iTunes
    7. Allow the account to sync contacts with your Android phone

    6. Switch to the Motorola device, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Import the vCard file to your phonebook using “Contacts

    Using “Send Anywhere”:

    NOTE: Send Anywhere is another third party app you can use for contact transfer, available on Android and iOS. The app uses a peer-2-peer connection to share contacts and other file types cross-platform without requiring a computer.

    1. Visit the App Store and install “Send Anywhere” on the iPhone
    2. Go to the Google Play Store and install the same app on the Motorola device
    3. Launch the app on both smartphones
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts
    5. Select the desired contacts
    6. Tap “Send” and select a transfer method on one of the devices
