    Default Moving contacts to N4

    I have a iPhone 3G and a Sanyo SCP-3810. Both have contacts on them. What would be the easiest way to transfer?

    Both devices should allow you to "export" your contacts as a file (.vcf file). Just transfer this file over to your N4 via bluetooth or email or whatever other method you may want to use. Then go to your contacts on the N4. hit the settings button (the 3 dots) and select import/export contact. Follow it through to get all your contacts over to the N4.

    You really need to get them into Gmail...it's the Android way. Plus, once they are in there, not only can you now access them from any computer in the world, but they will also instantly sync to any new phone you might get in the future. If you can possibly export the existing contacts into a csv file format, you can then import that file into Gmail on a PC.

    They should be syncing with your Gmail account automatically without syncing. This happens when you set up your account. Just make sure when you add a contact you select your gmail account not the device.

    Importing to gmail is definitely the way to go. It's so convenient if you happen to ever get another Android device down the road.

    Yeah - I can't understand why everyone isn't doing this. So simple, so easy, so perfect. Same goes for email (gmail). It's the most feature packed email around and you can access it from anything.

    The iPhone likely has a way to export contacts. Search on Google.

    After you exported the contacts from both phones, go to a web browser and import the contacts into your google/gmail account that you'll use on your new phone.

    Because you can't manage Google contacts. Outlook contacts are easily placed in categories, added, deleted, edited, etc. Google contacts are nothing more than a hodgepodge of people you have contacted -- sometimes just once or even by accident. Who needs a bunch of unsorted useless junk on their phone? This is one place where Google completely blew it. (Just my opinion.)
