If your previous contacts happened to be stored on old iPhone or Android, anther easiest solution to getting contacts onto your new phone is to make most of Google’s syncing service on your old phones. When you can access to your old device, the process would be rather easy.

Situation one: iPhone contacts to Galaxy S6 Edge

Open the “Settings” menu on your old iPhone and then select “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”. Click “Add Account” to locate “Google” option. Then you need to fill in user name and password for the Google account. Make sure this account is associated with your new Android phone. After that, your iPhone will spend about an hour syncing your contacts to Google’s servers. When you sign in with the same account on your new Galaxy S6 Edge, your contacts will automatically be imported to this new device. In this way, you manage to easily transfer contacts from iPhone to Samsung.

If your old phone is another edition of Android, Google also makes it easy to transfer contacts from Android to Galaxy S6 Edge. Go back to “Settings” and then select Google and enter your Gmail account under “Accounts & Sync”. Click this Gmail account and then you will see a list of items to sync. Once you tick the “Contacts” box, your contacts will be transferred to Google’s servers. Next start your new Android phone and sign in the same Gmail account. Your new Galaxy S6 Edge will sync contacts automatically. Just a while, you can transfer contacts to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

Conclusion

Google sync service is good for users to transfer contacts from one phone to another, but one disadvantage of it is that it syncs all the contacts to your new phone without filtering. As a result, you may move some useless ones to your new device. Comparatively, AirMore offers users more options to decide whether move all contacts or particular ones to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
