In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to transfer phone numbers from an Android device to an iPhone. It’s a common task when switching from one mobile platform to another, and with the right steps, it can be done smoothly.

Method 1: Using Google Account

If you have been using a Google account on your Android device to store your contacts, transferring them to your new iPhone is quite simple:

  1. Step 1: On your Android device, open the Contacts app.
  2. Step 2: Tap on the Menu icon (usually three vertical dots) located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Step 3: Select “Settings” from the menu options.
  4. Step 4: Scroll down and tap on “Accounts” or “Accounts and Sync”.
  5. Step 5: Choose your Google account from the list of accounts.
  6. Step 6: Make sure that “Contacts” syncing is enabled for this account.

If you haven’t added your Google account on your Android device yet, you can do so by following these steps:

  1. Add a Google Account:
    • Note: These steps may vary depending on your Android version and manufacturer’s customizations.
      1. Navigate to Settings



        Swipe down from the top of your screen or tap on the App Drawer icon (usually an icon with squares) to open the app drawer. From there, find and tap on the “Settings” app.

      2. Tap on Accounts



        In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Accounts” or “Accounts and Backup”.

      3. Add an Account



        Tap on “Add Account” or the “+” button. Select “Google” from the list of account types.

Once you have configured your Google account on your Android device and ensured that contacts syncing is enabled, follow these steps to transfer your phone numbers to your iPhone:

  1. Step 7: On your iPhone, go to Settings.
  2. Step 8: Scroll down and tap on “Passwords & Accounts”.
  3. Step 9: Tap on “Add Account”.

  5. Step 11: Sign in with the same Google account you used on your Android device.
  6. Step 12: Ensure that “Contacts” syncing is enabled for this account.

Method 2: Using a SIM Card

If you don’t use a Google account to store your contacts or prefer a different method, you can transfer phone numbers using a SIM card. Here’s how:

      Note: This method may not work if your Android device uses a micro-SIM or nano-SIM, while your iPhone uses a different SIM card size.


    • Step 1: On your Android device, open the Contacts app.
    • Step 2: Tap on the Menu icon (usually three vertical dots).
    • Step 3: Select “Import/Export” or a similar option.
    • Step 4: Choose “Export to SIM card”.
    • Step 5: Wait for the contacts to be exported to your SIM card.
    • Step 6: Remove the SIM card from your Android device and insert it into your iPhone.
    • Step 7: On your iPhone, go to Settings.
    • Step 8: Scroll down and tap on “Contacts”.
    • Step 9: Tap on “Import SIM Contacts”.

Congratulations! You have successfully transferred your phone numbers from your Android device to your new iPhone.

Remember to keep both devices fully charged during this process and ensure that you have a stable internet connection if using the Google account method. If you encounter any issues, feel free to reach out to customer support for assistance.
