Using iTunes:

One of the most popular methods of contact transfer is through iTunes, as the software allows the user to sync iPhone contacts with a Google account. The synchronized contacts include all the information stored in the contact, including the image, address, email and more. This method requires a computer with iTunes installed, and an Internet connection.

  1. On your computer, launch iTunes
  2. Establish a connection between your iPhone and computer via USB
  3. Once connected, the smartphone will pop-up in iTunes. Click it.
  4. Go to the "Info" tab and mark the "Sync Contacts With" check box
  5. From the drop-down menu, select "Google Contacts"
  6. If you haven't done this before, register your Google account. Otherwise, you can select a previously added account by clicking "Configure"
  7. To begin the syncing process, click "Apply"
  8. On your Galaxy Light, register the same Google account as the one used in iTunes. (NOTE: if you need to add it, go to "Settings" > "Accounts")
  9. Allow Google to sync contacts with your Samsung device

Using iCloud to Transfer Contacts:

iCloud is a backup service that can store your iPhone's contacts on your iCloud account. Assuming that you have used this service before, you can export these contacts as a vCard file, and grab them on the Galaxy Light. To do this, you need a computer with Internet access.

  1. Open your computer's Internet browser and visit
  2. Log in with your iCloud account
  3. Click "Contacts", and from the list, select the contacts that you want to share
  4. Click the "Settings" button depicting a cog wheel (bottom-left) and select "Export vCard"
  5. A VCF file will be downloaded on your computer
  6. Once downloaded, transfer the files in "Google Contacts". Otherwise, connect the Galaxy Light to your PC via USB, and transfer the file to the "sdcard" directory. Then, launch the "People" app and press "Menu" > "Import / Export" > "Import from SD". Select an account and load the desired VCF file

Using "My Contacts Backup":

  5. On the Galaxy Light, open the email containing the file attachment, and download it in order to import the contacts through the "People" application

Using "Send Anywhere" to Transfer Contacts:

Send Anywhere is an Android and iOS application that is capable of transferring contacts and various other file types through a P2P connection. As such, there's no need for a computer. To perform this method of transfer:
