Another swipe brings you to the contacts page, which is our main topic. If you wish to select all contacts for transfer, then just go ahead and tap on "select all". You can also transfer selectively.

Here's the final step.


So far, when i checked for the integrity of the transferred contacts, it contains every info i had from the original device (postal/email address, birthdays, etc).


By the way, the app can transfer from: Apple to Apple; Android to Android; Apple to Android and vice versa. I am in no way connected to the developers of this app. I hope you enjoyed this guide.
