    Need help importing contacts from iPhone to Galaxy S2 phone using Kies...

    Ok, I've tried everything and still blanking...

    I am trying to add my contacts from my iPhone 4.

    It seems simple enough. I connect my S2 phone and Kies shows it as a connected device (SGH-T989). I go to tools, go to transfer data from a non-Samsung device, I click on my S2 phone (as shown on Kies), a new screen opens showing the info on my iPhone, I click contacts, then click agree, then click start, it loads and then shows a red x over my contacts info and also zero bytes in size of data to be transferred - which leaves me with nothing and I close the window.

    I can go to connected devices (my S2), go to contacts, and import my contacts (that are saved on my desktop as .vcf format files), and import one contact at a time - which is really a slow way to do it. Isn't there a way to select "all" and import all the files at once?

    I've also tried going to "file" in the Kies toolbar and adding both the files and the folder, but I get a notice saying "the file(s) have a format that cannot be played on SGH-T989" (which I assume is my phone).

    Any ideas how to transfer the contacts would be greatly appreciated!

    Open your iTunes, or your Outlook account sync your contacts, now will take you few minutes to download Kites for your Galaxy S4, you can export your outlook contact into .vcf file, you can sync with Kites for your Galaxy S4. Or you can try this Phone Transfer to import contacts from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy.

    If you're still having trouble, your carrier will do this for free if you have time to take the device in. It only takes a couple minutes.
    Good luck!

    To transfer contacts from iPhone to Samsung,you could use phone to phone data transfer program,which is specially designed for data transferring between different devices.It will plug your devices into computer and then you could transfer contacts and other files through simple clicks.
