Transferring Contacts via iTunes:

Using iTunes you can sync the contacts stored on your iPhone with a Google account, after which you can set the account so that it syncs contacts with your Android device, in this case the Asus PadFone X. This method requires access to a computer hooked up to the Internet, and it must have iTunes installed.

  1. Launch iTunes on the computer
  2. Connect the iPhone to the PC using the proprietary USB cable
  3. After the iPhone connects, it will appear in iTunes. Click it to open its summary page
  4. Access the "Info" tab and mark the "Sync Contacts With" check box
  5. From the drop-down menu, select "Google Contacts"
  6. Enter your Google account's log in details. If you've already added a Google account in iTunes, you can click "Configure" and select it from the list
  7. Click "Apply" and the contacts will be synced with your account
  8. On the ASUS smartphone, register the same Google account and allow it to sync contacts with your smartphone. (NOTE: to add an account, go to "Settings" > "Accounts")

Transferring Contacts via iCloud:

Another method of transferring contacts is via iCloud. If you've used this backup service on your iPhone before, then your contacts should be backed up on your iCloud account. You can access your account using a computer, and export these contacts in the form of a VCF file for use on the Android OS. To do so:

  1. Open the Internet browser on your computer
  2. Go to and sign in with your iCloud account
  3. Click "Contacts" and select the contacts you wish to transfer
  4. Click the icon depicted like a cog wheel (lower-left area of the screen)
  5. Select "Export vCard" and wait for the VCF file to be downloaded on your computer
  6. Next up, you can either import the file to "Google Contacts", or alternatively you can connect the PadFone X to your computer via USB, transfer the VCF file to the phone's storage and then launch the contacts app, followed by "Menu" > "Manage contacts" > "Import / export" > "Import from storage"

Using "My Contacts Backup":

If you're looking for third party applications for transferring contacts without needing a computer, then you can use "My Contacts Backup" - an iOS app that can back up all of your iPhone contacts and transfer them as a VCF file via email. To use this method:

  1. Visit the App Store and install "My Contacts Backup" on your iPhone
  2. Launch the app and tap "Backup"
  3. After the VCF backup file has been created, tap "Email" to attach it to a new email
  4. Send the email containing the attachment to your own Gmail address
  5. Switch over to the ASUS PadFone X and open the email
  6. Download the attachment and import its contents using the contacts app and the "Import" function (as explained at the end of the iCloud guide)

Using "Send Anywhere":

Another third party app that can help you transfer your contacts without the need of a computer is "Send Anywhere". This is a third party Android and iOS app that can transfer contacts and other types of files cross-platform via a P2P connection.

  1. Go to the Google Play Store and install "Send Anywhere" on the ASUS PadFone X
  2. Visit the App Store, and install the same app on the iPhone too
  3. Launch the application on both smartphones
  4. Switch over to the iPhone and tap "Send" > "Contacts"
  5. Mark the contacts you wish to share, and tap "Send"
  6. The last step requires you to pick a method of sharing. By tapping "Receive" on the ASUS device, you can commence the transfer after entering the randomly generated transfer code displayed on the iPhone. Alternatively, you can tap "Generate QR Code" on the iPhone and scan the resulting code with the PadFone X's camera to begin the transfer
