Despite Android quickly closing ranks on the iPhone, many Apple users are still reluctant to take the leap away from the iPhone and its familiar design, interface and features. But there are so many benefits of buying Android mobile phones; the cost is just one of them! Especially as you can get great Samsung mobile phone contracts for just a shadow of the price of an iPhone contract!

And there is nothing more irritating than having to physically transfer all of your contacts one by one into a device when you buy a new phone.

So here is a simple guide to transferring all of your contacts from an iPhone to a Samsung device.

Transferring contacts

Because Samsung devices run Googleâs Android operating system, the way to transfer data from an iPhone to, say, a HTC, Sony or LG phone, is exactly the same.

  • Your first point of call is to open a Gmail account if you donât already have one. This will become necessary anyway once you start using your Samsung phone, as the Android app store is powered by Google, as youâd imagine. Doing this, though, takes a matter of minutes, and is completely free of charge.

  • Next, simply plug your Samsung into your computer and open up iTunes. By clicking on the âInfoâ tab on iTunes, you will have the option of selecting âSync Withâ, then âGoogle Contactsâ. Because you have a Gmail account, all of your iPhoneâs contact numbers, names and email addresses will be transferred to your Gmail account online.

  • In order to get this data from your Gmail account to your Samsung device, open up the settings menu from your home screen and select the âAccounts and Syncâ option. Your phone will ask you to add an account, where you will simply insert the address of your Gmail account. And hey presto, your contacts will all transfer from your Gmail to your Samsung handset! Simple!

Sometimes, if you are already familiar with Gmail, you might find that you have already inserted some contacts, especially email addresses, into your Gmail address book. Therefore, when you transfer contacts from your iPhone to your Gmail account, these contacts can duplicate themselves, which is annoying when it comes to using the numbers or email addresses on your phone.

To get around this, just click on the arrow next to the Gmail menu, to bring up more options. There, simply select the âContactsâ tab and then âMoreâ. Then, select the âFind and Merge Duplicatesâ box, and Gmail will automatically find and delete any addresses or numbers which appear more than once in your contact list.

So there you have it; there is no longer any excuse to hold back from shrugging off the iPhone in favour of a more malleable Samsung phone. And with so many Samsung mobile phone deals around for a much lower price than iPhone deals, why wouldnât you?
