This is a very simple thing which most people actually don’t know, or make use of.
You can transfer contacts to your iPhone from any source easily. Of course, we all know how to do that on iTunes, but you can do that even without iTunes. Here’s how.
How to Transfer Contacts to iPhone without iTunes:
You’ll need: an iPhone. And lots of contacts.
First, the basic idea behind the method:
iPhone lets you import contacts from a V-Card file. No matter how many contacts you have on your system or your mail client, or any other phone, you can have them all stored as a single “.vcf” file. And then, iPhone imports it all in one single swift step.
How to do it:
Step 1: First, store all your contacts in a .vcf file. On phones, you have an option where you can select whichever contacts you want to be sent to iPhone, and make a v-card of all those contacts.
Step 2: Now, from a computer (preferably) attach the vcard file to an email and send it to yourself (or the email which you use on the iPhone).
Step 3: Now, open the email on your iPhone and download the v-card file.
Step 4: When the vcard file is opened on the iPhone, it will automatically give you the option that goes like “Add All # Contacts” (# shows the number of contacts on the v-card).
Step 5: When you tap this, the contacts will be imported straight to your iPhone and that’s about it.
That’s how to transfer contacts to iPhone without using iTunes.
However, in case you have a csv file, you would have to convert it into a vcf file before you can import the contacts.
