    Thread Starter

    I just got the HUAWEI Ascend Mate 2 and new service from Consumer Cellular. My old service was with Verizon and I used a Motorola Droid 16GB phone. How can I easily transfer the Contacts list from the inactive Droid to the active HUAWEI?
    Thanks.

    If you backed up your contacts through Google, you shouldn't have a problem.

    If you stored your contacts as Google contacts and synced them then they'd download to the new phone when you log in to your Google account.

    Otherwise, go into your old phone's phonebook/contacts app, and when viewing the list of contacts bring up the app's menu. There should be an import/export option there. Export everything, which will give you a .vcf file (in your /sdcard folder) with all of your contacts. Copy that to the new phone and then import it into your contacts app and you should have everything transferred.

    Hadron explained everything, the simple logic is to export your contacts to .vcf file from your old phone and then copy it to your new phone's SD card, then import the .vcf to the new phone.
