Using a Google Account:

NOTE: You can easily transfer contacts from an older Samsung Galaxy S device by syncing them with your Google account. Then you can re-sync the contacts from the account with the LG Tribute 2.

  1. Register your Google account on the Samsung device
  2. Press “Menu” on the home screen
  3. Access “Settings”
  4. Tap “My Accounts” and go to “Google”
  5. Tap your “user name” or “email address”
  6. Make sure “Sync Contacts” is enabled and tap “Sync now”
  7. Switch to the LG Tribute 2 and register the same Google account on it
  8. Allow the account to sync contacts with your LG phone

Using the “Contacts” Application:

NOTE: You can use the default Contacts app on the Samsung phone to export your contacts as a VCF backup file. You can then send the file to the LG Tribute 2, and import its contents using the phone’s default contacts app

  1. On the Galaxy device, open “Contacts”
  2. Go to the “Contacts” tab
  3. Press “Menu” > “Contacts to display” > “All contacts”
  4. Press “Menu” and tap “Import / Export”
  5. Tap “Export to SD card” (make sure you remember the backup file’s name for future use)
  6. Tap “OK”
  7. After the VCF file has been created, open the email application, compose a new email containing the VCF file as an attachment, and send the email to your own Gmail address
  8. On the LG Tribute 2, open the email and download the attached VCF file
  9. Launch the contacts app, press “Menu” > “manage contacts” > “Import”
  10. In the “From” field add the VCF file. Under “To”, select “Google” or “Phone”
  11. Select the contacts you want to import from the vCard file, or tap “Select all”
  12. Tap “Import” > “Yes”

NOTE: You can also transfer the VCF file from the Samsung device by connecting both smartphones to a computer via USB, and manually copy > pasting it on the LG Tribute 2’s storage.

Using “Send Anywhere”:

NOTE: Send Anywhere is a third party application capable of transferring contacts and other file types cross platform, through a P2P connection, without needing access to a computer.

  1. Visit the Google Play Store and install Send Anywhere on both smartphones
  2. Open the application on both devices
  3. On the Galaxy phone, tap “Send” > “Contacts”
  4. Select the contacts you want to share and tap “Send”
  5. Lastly, select a transfer method. You can tap “Generate QR Code” on the sender device and scan it with the LG’s camera to begin the transfer. You can also tap “Receive” on the Tribute 2 and manually enter the randomly generated transfer code from the Galaxy phone
