    Via iTunes:

    NOTE: If you have iTunes installed on your computer, you can use the software to sync contacts from your iPhone with a Google account. Then you can sync the contacts from the account with the LG Magna. This method requires an active Internet connection on the computer.

    1. Launch iTunes on the PC
    2. Connect the iPhone to the computer via USB
    3. Once it connects, the iPhone will pop-up in iTunes. Click it
    4. Click "Info" in the summary page
    5. Enable "Sync Contacts With" and select "Google Contacts" from the drop-down menu
    6. Register your Google account in iTunes. Alternatively you can click "Configure" and select an existing account
    7. Click "Apply" and wait for the sync process to complete
    8. Once done, register the same Google account on your LG Magna
    9. Allow the account to sync contacts with your phone

    Via iCloud:

    NOTE: In case you have used the iCloud backup service on your iPhone before, you can access the iCloud account on your computer and export your contacts in the form of a VCF file.

    1. Launch the Internet browser on the computer
    2. Visit and sign in to your iCloud account
    3. Go to "Contacts" and select the contacts you want to export
    4. Click "Settings" > "Export vCard"
    5. Wait for the vCard file to be downloaded on your computer
    6. Once the file is downloaded, import it to "Google Contacts". Otherwise you can skip this step and instead:
    7. Connect the LG Magna to your computer via USB and transfer the VCF file to the phone's "sdcard" directory. Next, open "People", press "Menu" and import the vCard file

    Via "My Contacts Backup":

    NOTE: The two methods above require access to a computer connected to the Internet; however you can also transfer your contacts without computer access, using various third party apps. "My Contacts Backup" is an iOS app that can be used to back up your contacts, and transfer them via email

    1. Open the App Store on the iPhone and install "My Contacts Backup"
    2. Launch the application
    3. Tap "Backup" and wait for the file to be created
    4. Tap "Email" to compose a new email with the VCF file attached to it
    5. Send the email to your own Gmail address
    6. On the LG Magna, open the email and download the attached file
    7. Launch "People" and import the vCard file

    Using "Send Anywhere":

    NOTE: Send Anywhere is an Android and iOS app that can be used to transfer contacts cross-platform via a P2P connection without the need of a computer.

    1. Open the App Store and install "Send Anywhere" on the iPhone
    2. From the Google Play Store, install the app on the LG Magna
    3. Launch the app on both smartphones
    4. On the iPhone, tap "Send" > "Contacts"
    5. Select the contacts you want to share and tap "Send"
    6. Select the desired transfer method. Tap "Generate QR Code" on the iPhone to create a QR code that can be scanned with the LG Magna's camera to complete the transfer. You can also tap "Receive" on the LG device and manually enter the transfer code generated on the iPhone

    Re: Transfer Contacts from an iPhone to the LG Magna

    Qikshare is an app that require zero setup. Simply open the app on both devices. On the old device click share contacts -> select all -> send. Then choose your other device (it'll show automagically in the list). and VOILLA !
