Transferring Contacts via "Import / Export":

Via the "Contacts" app, you can export the contacts stored on the Galaxy Premier, and import them on the Active either via email or by using a computer.

  7. Attach the vCard file to the email and send it to your own Gmail address

NOTE: once you have obtained the VCF file on the Galaxy Premier, you can easily transfer it to the Galaxy S5 Active by connecting both smartphones to a computer via USB, and manually transferring the file from the Premier's storage to the Galaxy S5 Active's "sdcard" directory. After the transfer, launch the "Contacts" app on the Active and import the file
