Transfering Contacts from PC to phone?

    Hello,

    I am computer literate, but new to the world of Smartphones.
    I have just bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 (model SM-G900F) running Android v5.0
    I want to load it up with all my contacts, which are presently held on
    my PC's email utility (which is eM-Client).

    With eM-Client I can save my contacts as an Excel spreadsheet, or as a .csv file,
    and I think it ought to be possible to transfer from one of these formats
    to the S5, but cannot work out how to do this.

    I have tried Samsung Kies, but it does not seem to recognise the S5 when
    I connect it to the PC. Have also tried Samsung Smart Switch, but this also
    seems to have problems connecting with the S5, and in any case does not appear
    to be the appropriate tool for what I need to do.

    I have well over a hundred contacts -- no question of entering them all
    one-by-one! Also, later on I would like to do the same with my Calendar.

    Can anyone offer any advice or help?
    Many thanks

    The easiest way is to get them into your Google contacts on a desktop PC using the account that your phone is registered to. Then sync the account to the phone and you'll have them all right there.

    Thanks, your advice has worked, but it took a lot of time and effort. I had to set up
    a Google account, which is not easy, followed by much to-ing and fro-ing to import
    contacts from eM-client. Got there in the end, so thanks again.
