Getting contacts from old phone with out backup assistant

Member

Ok, sorry if there is info on this in another thread but I havn't been able to find anything. I just got my new HTC Incredible 2 and I'd like to get my contacts off my old samsung phone. Here's the problem, I never used the backup assistant feature on my old phone...is there a way to still transfer those old contacts? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

One more way is using blue tooth to sync both phones, this is the most easy way to transfer contacts.

It might help if you give more info on Samsung, what device is it because this would make diffrence of working methods.

It might also be possible to temporarily reactivate your old phone, install Backup Assistant, run it to get the contacts onto VZW's website and then reactivate the Droid Incredible.

Once the contacts are on the VZW website, export the contact to csv or vcf file and then import them into your Google account.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

If Anns solution isnt a option for you, another option if the phone has a supported gmail app, you can install it and connect to wifi and be able to sync contacts with Google and after syncing you should be able to log into gMail on Inc2 and sybc data to device.
