How to Import Contacts from iPhone to an Android Phone

Recently I’ve switched from iPhone to Android device, HTC Evo 3D, and first thing I wanted to do (like anyone switching their handset will) to import my contacts. But to my surprise I found that iPhone stored all the contacts on the phone and there’s no way to copy/import the contact to SIM!

So, I decided to start adding the contacts one by one (manually) on my new phone and while doing it I realised that my Android phone has 3 options of storing the contacts – on the phone, on the SIM and on my Google account. So, I quickly started iTunes on the computer I used to sync my iPhone with. After connecting my iPhone I checked how the contacts are synced between iPhone and iTunes.

iTunes’ “Info” tab for the iPhone has option to sync contacts. It has options to sync contacts with Outlook, Windows Contacts, Yahoo Address Book and Google account. And that was my answer and solution for the problem. I selected Google Account, logged into it and synced. As soon as the sync was done I had all my contacts on my HTC phone. Awesomeness!

  1. yes but i have an evo 3d and also an ipod touch 4, which has half the ram of an iphone 4. and my ipod touch 4 runs more graphic intense games and more apps at once more smoothly then the evo 3d. simply apple know what they are making there device for and how to perform. android needs to make something to run on multiple devices making it a lot less stable.

  3. To switch between the two modes, all you have to do is move the switch on the outside of the phone from 2D to 3D. You don’t need 3D glasses for this phone. When you select the 3D camera, it snaps images from both lenses at once, giving you a 3D look by creating more depth of field. The dual camera on the back also comes with auto focus and a dual LED flash. In addition to photos, you can also record videos with the HTC Evo 3D. It records in both 2D and 3D with up to 720p resolution. That way you can capture movies and videos that look great on your TV or computer screen.

  4. To access contacts, you use the People app located on the main screen. The same contacts appear when you press the Phone button at the bottom of the touchscreen. If you add a Facebook account, those contacts are listed with their photo and phone number.
