Transfer exisiting contacts to Galaxy S4.

I need to transfer my exisiting content (especially Contacts) from Nexus to Samsun S4.

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Transfer exisiting contacts to Galaxy S4.

If you added your Google account to your Nexus phone, they should all transfer automatically as soon as you sign-in on your Galaxy S4 with the same Google account. I've had my first Android phone about 4 years ago and changed a few times since and never had to add my contacts again.

 

You can make sure your contacts are synced by:

 

  1. Go into Settings
  2. Under Accounts, select Google
  3. Make sure youremailaddress@gmail.com has Sync enabled (there should be a green icon with the last sync date/time)
  4. Tap your email address and make sure there's a checkmark next to Contacts.
  5. Press Back, click on the three dots in the top-right corner and select Sync now

I've found these instructions on my Nexus 5 running Android 4.4.4, so if you're using a different Android version the steps may differ a bit but it should be roughly at the same place.

 

Before getting rid of your Nexus, make sure that your Galaxy S4 has your contacts.
