    Hello, I have a new (to me) S4, and I would like to get my contacts from my old Incred. 2 (2.3.4) onto it... I've tried Samsung Smart Switch, but it won't work on the old HTC. Also tried Android File Transfer, to get files from old phone onto my Mac, then get them from Mac to S4...but that's for 3.0 and later...

    Any suggestions would really help! Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! I assume the contacts on the HTC are not associated with your Google account--if they were, they'd already be synced with your new phone. On the HTC phone, open the Contacts app, tap the Menu button, and look for an Import/Export option. See if you can export your contacts into a .csv or multiple .vcf file that's saved to the SD card, then remove the SD card and insert it into your computer to transfer that file to the computer's hard drive. Now go to your Google Contacts on the web and import those contacts. Once imported into Google Contacts, they will sync automatically with your phone.

    See this part of my guide, under "Importing Contacts": http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...ml#post3707512

    What would happen if I took the SD card out of the HTC and stuck it in the S4?

    Sorry if thats a dumb question- I wouldn't want to mess up the phone- of course, I have a new 4GLTE card in the S4...

    Moving the SD card from the old phone to the new one might be helpful if you want to transfer those exported contacts (but you still have to go through the process of exporting them). On the new phone, if you open the Contacts app and tap Menu, there should be an Import option, and you could try importing the contacts from the SD card. But moving the SD card won't let you easily move your other app data.
