    3. Sign in with your iCloud account and access “Contacts
    4. Select the contacts you want to share and click “Settings
    5. Click “Export vCard” and wait for the vCard to be downloaded on the computer

    6. On the Samsung device, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Launch “Contacts” and import the vCard to your phonebook

    Using “Send Anywhere”:

    NOTE: Send Anywhere is another third party app you can use to share your iPhone contacts without requiring a PC. The app uses a peer-2-peer connection to share various types of files, including contacts, cross-platform.

    1. Launch the App Store and install “Send Anywhere” on the iPhone
