Nowadays, we change phones frequently, thanks to the improvement in the level of technology and innovation which has lead to the release of thousands of high-quality smartphones with top notch features. As a Samsung fanatic, one of the things you must do just after getting a new Samsung Galaxy model involves transferring your contacts from your old phone to the new one. Moving all your contacts manually, with names, numbers, job titles and more can be a difficult and time-consuming process. It's even worse if you have a large size of contacts. In this article, we share everything about the simplest and fastest way on how to copy contacts from Samsung to Samsung.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Copy Contacts from Samsung to Samsung
Step 1 Download and Install and Run the Software
MobileTrans for Mac can be downloaded from the official iSkysoft Studio website. You can select either the free trial version or buy the full version. It takes a few seconds for the phone transfer setup file to be saved on your Mac. Click the file and then drag the software's icon to "Applications" in order to install it. Simply double-click the software's icon to launch it. You will be able to see the four basic functions of MobileTrans displayed on the main interface.
Step 2 Connect the Two Samsung Devices to Mac
Ensure that your SIM Card is inserted in your old Samsung phone and then use the original USB cables that came with both phones to connect them to your Mac. Remember to authorize the phones to Mac by allowing USB debugging.
Step 3 Open the Phone Transfer Window
Here, an iPhone 5S is used but you can easily connect both your Samsung devices instead. Select the "Phone to Phone Transfer" tab to access the transfer window. The software will then scan your source device (old Samsung phone) and show its data on the interface.
Step 4 Copy Contacts from the Old Samsung to the New Samsung Model
Check the files you would like to transfer to your new Samsung phone, in this case, its "Contacts". You can also check the "Clear data before copy" option so that the software can delete any data on your new phone before the transfer process can start. Click the "Start Copy" button to transfer your contacts.
You shouldn't disconnect any of the two Samsung phones until when the contacts have been successfully transferred to your new Samsung phone. The time taken to transfer all your contacts depends on the size of your contacts, as well as the condition of your Samsung phones and Mac. However, MobileTrans moves your contacts at fast speed.
Now all your contacts are on your new Samsung device, and you can call or text your family members, friends, relatives, customers, business partners and more. The contacts on your old Samsung phone can now act as a backup, meaning that if you suffer a great data loss on your new phone or if it's lost, stolen, or misplaced, you can use MobileTrans to restore your contacts to another phone.
