iPhone to iPhone contact merge

Views: 613 Replies: 8
Hello. I have 2 iphone 6 phones, with 2 different apple IDs currently. One is a personal phone (phone A) and the other is for work (phone . How can I export the contacts from phone B, then import them to phone A, while keeping all of phone A's original contacts? Once that is done, I'd like to use the Apple ID that is on phone A on both phones...I just don't want to lose any contacts from either phone during this process. Is there a way in iTunes? Is there an app/program that will do this?

Much appreciated!

I would assume phone B is syncing with your company emails, contacts and calendar?

If so, add the email account to your phone A, and put a check mark next to contacts.

Just tried that. A message pops up on the phone and says "This email address is already in use with another Apple ID"

You're setting up your work email account to phone A right?

Is your apple id the same as your work email?

I just want to get the work contacts copied over to my personal phone. Then use my personal Apple ID for both phones once that's done.

Yes, my apple ID for my work phone is my work email address and it's tied to my work phone right now.

But your syncing your work contact with your email account right? i.e. outlook?

You should still be able to set up your work email account on your personal phone.

I think my work syncs them there, not sure honestly. We run an exchange server for our email.

Ok, we use exchange too.

Can you add your work email to your personal phone?

Sign into iCloud with your work email Apple ID

Go to Contacts

Export them - and then import them when signed into iCloud using your personal Apple ID

2nd method

IF you can download a contact management app - there are several free and low cost ones on the app store - you can use that to export your contacts from the work phone

It is usually a CSV or Excel file - that can be imported into the contacts on the personal Apple IS phone
