  8. Use the “Contacts” app to import the vCard

Using “Send Anywhere”:

NOTE: Send Anywhere is another third party app (for Android and iOS) you can use to transfer contacts through a peer-to-peer connection without needing a computer.

  1. Go to the App Store and install “Send Anywhere” on the iPhone
  2. On the Pixi 4, visit the Play Store and install the same app
  3. Launch the application on both smartphones
  4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts”
  5. Select the contacts you want to share
  6. Tap “Send”
