Hello and welcome to this tutorial on how to transfer contacts from one Android device to another. This process can be daunting, but with the right tools and steps, it can be done quickly and easily.
Step 1: Sync Contacts with Google Account
The first step is to sync your contacts with your Google account. To do this, go to your phone’s settings and select “Accounts”. From there, select your Google account and turn on the “Contacts” toggle. This will automatically sync your contacts with your Google account.
Step 2: Export Contacts from Old Device
The next step is to export your contacts from your old device. To do this, go to your contacts app and select “Export”. Choose “Export to storage” and save the file to your device’s storage. This will save your contacts as a VCF file.
