You can safely and quickly transfer contacts from your old phone to your new phone by saving the numbers to your SIM card. Read our blog to find out the easy way to transfer numbers from phone to SIM.
If you want to transfer numbers from your phone to the SIM card, first open “Contacts”. Next, select the “Import / Export” and “Export to SIM” tabs in the options.
When you’re ready to upload the numbers to your new phone, follow the same process. Open “Contacts” and find the ”Import / Export”. The last step in the process is different. Here you need to select the “Import to SIM” function.
Exporting and importing your numbers to the SIM is not the only way to transfer contacts from one phone to another. If you have a Google account and you have activated the “Automatically sync data” option, your contacts will be automatically saved to the cloud. To retrieve them, simply log into your Google account using your new phone and it will download your contacts.
You can also transfer contacts using Bluetooth. Find out more in our blog How to transfer contacts from phone to phone using Bluetooth.
If you have an Apple device, you can’t save contacts on the SIM card. Users access and transfer data through iCloud and iTunes instead. When you get a new phone, you simply log into your iCloud or iTunes account to access essential data.
Saving contacts on your SIM card is a quick and easy way to save data but it’s not your only option. Whether you have an iPhone or Android, cloud storage makes it simple to get essential data on any device when you need it.
