The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has been recently released in the US via AT&T, and since the carrier in question has also retailed the highest amount of iPhones, you might find yourself in a position where you'd like to transfer your iPhone contacts to a recently purchased Zoom. Below you will find four easy methods of transferring contacts from an iPhone to the Zoom. Each method has its advantages, so pick the one that you find most useful / easy.

NOTE: this tutorial works with any Galaxy S4 Zoom variant, not only AT&T's.

Transferring Contacts from an iPhone Using iTunes:

  1. Launch iTunes on your computer. If necessary, visit the official Apple website and download the iTunes client (install etc.)
  2. Connect your iPhone to your computer using the proprietary USB cable
  3. Once connected, iTunes should show your device. Click on it to view the handset's summary page
  4. Go to the "Info" tab
  5. Mark the check box associated with "Sync Contacts With". From the drop-down menu, select "Google Contacts"
  6. If you haven't done so previously, enter your Google account login credentials. Alternatively, click "Configure" and select a previously set Google account
  7. Click "Apply" and allow iTunes to sync the contacts with your Google account
  8. On your Galaxy S4 Zoom, register the same Google account, if you haven't done so already. To register an account, go to "Settings" > "Account"
  9. Allow the Google account to sync your contacts with your phone

Using iCloud to Transfer Contacts from an iPhone:

If you've previously enabled the iCloud service on your iPhone, then your contacts should have been packed up to your iCloud account. As such, you can use iCloud in order to get those contacts onto your S4 Zoom. To do so:

  1. On your computer, use the Internet browser to access
  2. Sign in to your iCloud account
  3. Click "Contacts" to view the list of contacts
  4. From the list, select the contacts that you wish to export to your SGS4 Zoom
  5. Click the button depicting a cog wheel (located at the lower-left corner), and select "Export vCard"
  6. After your computer downloads the VCF file containing the contacts, import the VCF file to Google Contacts. Alternatively, skip this step and follow the one below instead:
  7. Connect your Galaxy S4 Zoom to your computer, and access the "/sdcard" directory. Copy the VCF file in that folder, and then open the "Contacts" application > tap "Menu" > "Import / Export" > "Import from SD card"

Using My Contacts Backup to Transfer Contacts from an iPhone:

My Contacts Backup is an application for iOS that allows you to transfer contacts via email. You will not need access to a computer in order to complete this guide.

  1. On your iPhone, visit the App Store and download > install the "My Contacts Backup" application
  2. Launch the app and tap "Backup"
  3. After the backup process is complete, tap "Email" to attach the VCF file to an email
  4. Enter your own Gmail address as the recipient for the email containing the VCF file attachment
  5. Send the email
  6. On your SGS4 Zoom, open the email containing the attachment, and download the VCF file to import the contacts

Using the "Bump" Application to Transfer Contacts:

Bump allows you to transfer contacts from the iPhone to the SGS4 Zoom without using a computer. The app makes use of cloud computing, so you will need to have access to an active Internet connection on both smartphones.

  1. Install "Bump" on your iPhone by visiting the App Store
  2. Visit the Google Play Store with your SGS4 Zoom, and download "Bump"
  3. Launch the app on both smartphones and allow permissions if / when prompted
  4. On the iPhone, swipe to the "Contacts" section

  6. When the label "Bump now!" appears, you can gently tap the two devices together
  7. Tap "Connect" in the pop-up, and allow the two devices to communicate
  8. Your iPhone contacts should now be copied over to the Galaxy S4 Zoom
