    2. Connect the iPhone to your PC via USB
    3. In iTunes, click the iPhone and access “Info
    4. Enable “Sync Contacts With” and select “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu
    5. Sign in with your Google account or click “Configure” and select an existing account
    6. Click “Apply” to start the sync
    7. Once the sync is done, switch to the Samsung phone and sign in with the same Google account used in iTunes
    8. Set the account so that it can sync contacts with your Android phone

    NOTE: If your iPhone contacts are backed up on your iCloud account, you can access the account on a computer with an active Internet connection and export the contacts in a vCard file for Android use.

      • Connect the Samsung phone to your computer via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage and use “Contacts” to import it
    Using “My Contacts Backup”:

    5. Send the email to your own address
    6. On the Samsung device, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Import the vCard via “Contacts

    Using “Send Anywhere”:

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

    1. Go to the App Store and install “Send Anywhere” on the iPhone
    2. Visit the Google Play Store and install the app on the Samsung phone
    3. Launch the app on both smartphones
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts
    5. Select the desired contacts to share and tap “Send
