Using iTunes:

NOTE: If you have iTunes installed on your computer, you can use the app to sync the contacts on your iPhone with your Google account. You can then sync the account data, including contacts, with the ZTE Axon.

  1. Launch iTunes on the computer
  2. Connect the iPhone to your computer via USB
  3. In iTunes, click the iPhone to reveal the summary page
  4. Access the “Info” tab and turn on “Sync Contacts With”
  5. From the drop-down menu, select “Google Contacts”
  6. Sign in with your Google account and click “Configure”
  7. Select an existing account and click “Apply”
  8. Once the sync is done, switch to the ZTE Axon and register the same Google account. Then, allow the account to sync contacts with your device
  9. After the transfer is complete, eject the phone storage from the system tray and safely disconnect the ZTE Axon from your PC

Using iCloud:

NOTE: If you’ve used the iCloud backup service on your iPhone prior to finding this guide, then the contacts on your iPhone should already be backed up on your iCloud account. By accessing the account on a computer connected to the Internet, you can export the contacts as a vCard file.

  1. Launch the Internet explorer on your PC
  2. Visit and sign in with your iCloud account
  3. Click “Contacts”
  4. Select the contacts you want to export and click “Settings”
  5. Click “Export vCard” and once the file is downloaded on your computer, import it to “Google Contacts”
  6. Alternatively, skip the step above and instead connect the ZTE Axon to your computer via USB. Then, transfer the vCard file to the phone storage and import its contents using the “Contacts” app

Using “My Contacts Backup”:

NOTE: You can also transfer the contacts on your iPhone using third party applications. My Contacts Backup is an iOS app that can be used to back up and transfer your iPhone contacts via email.

  1. Open the App Store and install “My Contacts Backup” on the iPhone
  2. Launch the application and tap “Backup”
  3. After the backup file is created, tap “Email” to compose a new email
  4. Ensure that the backup file is attached to the email and send it to your own address
  5. On the ZTE Axon, open the email and download the attached vCard file
  6. Import the vCard using the “Import” option within the “Contacts” app

Using “Send Anywhere”:

NOTE: Another third party application you can use to transfer contacts from your iPhone is “Send Anywhere”. Available on iOS and Android, the app uses a P2P connection to transfer contacts and other file types cross-platform, without requiring a computer.

  1. Visit the App Store and install Send Anywhere on the iPhone
  2. Install the same app on the ZTE Axon via the Play Store
  3. Open the app on both devices
  4. Tap “Send” on the iPhone, and tap “Contacts”
  5. Select the contacts you want to share and tap “Send”
  6. Lastly, choose a transfer method. You can tap “Receive” on the ZTE Axon and enter the transfer code from the iPhone, or tap “Generate QR Code” on the iPhone and scan the code with the ZTE Axon’s camera to start the transfer
