Help With Importing Contacts From iPhone To Android
I am new to the forum and soon to be new to Android (Thunderbolt) and am looking for a little advice. I did some searching but I couldn't find an explanation that exactly matched my particular situation or question that I have in mind. I'd appreciate any and all help that can be provided. Thanks a lot in advance.
I am trying to learn the quickest and most efficient way to sync my contacts from my iPhone to my Android Phone. I have a gmail account and thus, a google account. I know how to sync my iPhone contacts from iTunes to my gmail account (but have not done this).
THE PROBLEM: The contacts I have on my iPhone are the contacts that I want to swap over to my new Android Phone. However, i have a few hundred more contacts in my gmail account that I DO NOT wish to sync to my new Android Phone.
I guess I could sync my iPhone contacts using iTunes to a NEW, separate, clean gmail account, then upload to android, and thus have only the iPhone contacts that I want to sync appear on the new Android phone.
However, if I do this, can I then switch back to my primary, preferred gmail account, from which I can then continue to receive my e-mails without syncing all the extra contacts i have in THAT account to the Android Phone?
WHAT I AM ATTEMPTING TO ACCOMPLISH: I don't want to have to sync or merge my iPhone contacts with my existing gmail account and then have to later delete hundreds of contacts off of the android phone after I have synced the Android Phone to my primary gmail account.
Any suggestions, other methods, etc.? Have I missed something simple?
Thanks again. I apologize if I have missed this explained elsewhere i the forums.
