    I just posted a new thread on this - how did you transition your contacts from your iPhone over to the S4? they couldnt' do it for me at the store =/
    You can sync your contacts with Microsoft Outlook, export the CSV file from Outlook and save it on your computer desktop, then upload it to your Gmail through Gmail.com and BOOM all your contacts are there!

    Once you sync your iPhone contacts to Outlook via iTunes, then follow this

    Export Outlook Contacts to Google Gmail - Outlook - Office.com

    The easiest way is to load itunes with your device and under info select sync with google instead of cloud or computor. If you can't do it there, you will have to go into your settings on your phone and change sync with google there. Once you do that you can sync all your contacts to your Samsung and Whalla, they are on your new phone. You have to set up a gmail account if you dont have one.

    Once I switched from iPhone to the Galaxy S3 I never looked back. Now I cannot wait to upgrade to the new S4!

    thanks all
    do you sync like you do an apple? how please
    This is something android needs. An android like iTunes that will have all your music movies videos and apps also a universal back up and restore (yes I know CWM recovery but that's not for the everyday user). I think that move people would come over to android if they did.

    Oh I hope this doesn't happen. The fact that Android does not require an iTunes-like program to move files is a major reason I own an Android phone. I'm not a fan of cloud technology either.

    Well??? You opted for the S4????

    Yes I did! I was bummed that I couldn't get it when I went to the AT&T store yesterday, so I was thinking it wasn't meant to be.. so I went about my Day until RackDaddy on here posted that Best Buy Mobile was selling them.. so I called to see.. and I said to myself - if they say yes they are selling the S4 and have it in stock and will sell to me It was meant for me to get it..

    So the rest was history lol

    I'm really enjoying the phone... Missed my note 2, but you are right - it's the perfect size.. it's super light.. and as for the 16GB (9GB being available for internal storage).. that is more than enough for me as i'm not a heavy app user (I'm more of a super heavy picture/music person) so It works out perfectly for me (MicroSD card for my pictures will be enough).. I'm just waiting for my MicroSD Card to come in the mail so I can put all my pictures and music on my phone..

    I am so happy that I have switched from the iPhone 4S - it's a great change and very much needed. A Few of my iPhone friends have made fun of me, but i'm taking that with a grain of salt because I KNOW how awesome this phone is compared to what I had.. I don't have to squint my eyes any more and pinch around the screen to zoom every few seconds lol.. and OMG I LOVE the camera! I can capture so many amazing pictures of my babies lol..

    I guess you can tell I am happy haha

    for me, It was personal preference. I had been reading up on both phones, looking at youtube videos and looking at both forums and despite all the S4 vs HTC One bashing, I wanted to wait till I saw it in person and I just honestly preferred the S4. I liked the camera functions and all the candy coated features it had and it was just what I needed and appealed to me the most. Not that the One wasn't capable, but it was just personal preference.

    Kind of makes me wish I hadn't bought the S3, now i have to wait forever before I can upgrade.
    Much of the features is coming to the s3 odds are so u shouldn't have that much phone envy.
