  8. On the Samsung Galaxy Ace 4, register the same Google account and allow it to sync contacts with your Galaxy Ace 4. NOTE: if you need to add an account, go to "Settings" > "Accounts"

Using iCloud to Transfer Contacts:

The iCloud backup service allows you to export the backed up contacts in the form of a VCF file.

  7. Connect the Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 to your computer via USB and then copy the downloaded VCF file to the phone's "sdcard" directory. Then, launch the "Contacts" application and press "Menu" > "Import / Export" > "import from SD card". Select an account if necessary and load the VCF file
