    6. Import the vCard file using the “Contacts” application

    Via “Send Anywhere”:

    NOTE: Send Anywhere is a third party app for iOS and Android that uses a P2P connection to transfer contacts and other types of files, even cross-platform.

    1. Launch the App Store and install “Send Anywhere” on the iPhone
    2. Install the app on the Galaxy A8 via the Google Play Store
    3. Open the app on both devices
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts”
    5. Choose the contacts you want to share and tap “Send”
    6. Select a method of transfer. Tapping “Receive” on the Galaxy A8 allows you to enter the randomly generated code from the iPhone to begin the transfer. You can also tap “Generate QR Code” on the iPhone to scan the code with the Samsung phone’s camera and begin the transfer
