Tips

  • To be able to use the Import SIM contacts option, you will need to have saved contacts on that SIM card with your old mobile.
  • Friends can share their contacts with you by choosing to share when a contact is viewed in the iPhone's address book, and the details can be sent via email or text message.
  • Apps like Bump make it quick and easy to share contact information.

Warnings

  • If you use iCloud, your contacts will sync wirelessly from Contacts to all connected computers and iOS devices, in addition to the online Contacts app on iCloud.com.
  • It is very important to make sure that you are using a recently updated contact list. If the contacts are not recent, you may be emailing the wrong person or dialing the wrong phone number.
