Whenever we bought a brand new Android phone, it becomes necessary to transfer our data from the previous Android to the new one. Above all, you need to add transferring contacts on the first-to-do list. So what will you do? I guess no one wants to move the contacts manually which may drive you mad totally. Well, if you’re having trouble in transferring contacts from old Android phone to new Android phone, please try the methods below:
To transfer your contacts, backing up your contacts to SIM card and then exporting them to the new Android phone could be a solution for you. Just follow the steps below:
- Firstly, open the Contacts or People app on your phone and look for the Setting menu.
- Select Import/Export under the Manage contacts.
- Select Export then set it to export your contacts to the SIM card.
- Then take out your SIM and pop it into your new device. And you may be prompted to choose whether you want to use SIM contacts or not. If so, just state yes.
If you prefer a direct way, you should try Phone Transfer, which provides a much easier way to transfer contacts between Android phones. With just one click, you can transfer all your contacts. Now please download and install RecoveryTool Phone Transfer on your PC and follow the guidance to check it out.
Step 1: Connect both Android Phones to the same PC
Above all, run Phone Transfer and connect your both Android phones to your PC. After it, select "Phone to Phone Transfer", which will enable this program to copy data directly from one phone to another by one click.
Step 2: Select Contacts to Migrate
In this part, you need to select Contacts in the middle column. Make sure that your old Android phone is set as "Source" and your new phone as "Destination". If not, click "Flip" to change their places. Besides, if you want to erase contacts in your destination phone, you can tick "Clear data before copy". Otherwise, just uncheck it.
Step 3: Start to Transfer Contact List
Now it's high time to transfer your contacts by clicking "Start Copy".
And once the copying process is done, click "OK". Then you can turn to your new Android phone to check the address book.
