    I just switched my 3G Verizon HTC Incredible to 4 G TMobile Samsung Galaxy Blaze . Some of my contact information from the HTC did not transfer to the Blaze , and I find myself having to manually copy some of theinformation to the Samsung. In addition, I prefer the contact organization of the HTC. They are both Android phones. Is there anyway to change the Samsung contacts to the HTC format ? Or to transfer all the information ?

    Easiest way is to use Google for your contacts. It will automatically add them to any other android phone you are logged in to. As for HTC vs Samsung view, there's not much you can do other than go back to an HTC phone.

    You are going to transfer contacts between Android and Android ? before you transferring them , you need to sync them to backup

    This is rather an old thread (last post 4 years ago), so I imagine the OP has done it by now ;).

    However, since this thread started various vendors have also added their own "transfer data to my new phone" apps (HTC and Samsung both have these). So if you have contacts you don't want to sync with a cloud service then you could use one of these.

    Or just "export" from the contacts app, copy the vcard file to the new phone and then "import" it there.

    Google sync is convenient, but you don't have to use it. There are other ways.

    Google has automated a lot of the process, you can see which apps have their data backed up via Google Drive.

    There are also many SMS Backup apps available on Play. Whatsapp has its own backup function via google drive.

    Your contacts are linked to your Google Account.

    Aside from Helium Backup, any of the apps where you need to install something on your PC are pointless and riddled with adware/malware. Steer clear, they are utterly pointless and the only people we ever see recommending them on this forum are paid shills and spammers.
