After that, remove LG’s SIM card and replace it with your original iPhone SIM card. Open Contacts on your iPhone to check that the contacts from LG’s SIM card have been imported.


  • This method works only if your LG’s SIM card is the as same size as your iPhone’s nano-SIM.  Also, you can cut down a micro SIM to fit, but take it as a last resort – if you get it wrong, both the SIM and contacts are out of work.
  • You can only import the contact name and phone number to the SIM card, but other information such Email address will be lost. And the SIM capacity is limited, you may not import all your phone contacts to the SIM card if you have a large amount of contacts.

Import Google Contacts to iPhone via vCard File

And What if your LG is broken and can’t be turned on or your LG phone is stolen? If your Google sync is on, you can go to Google Contacts and export contacts to your iPhone via the vCard file.

Step 1: Export Contact File

Go to Google Contacts website on your computer browser, log in to your Google account that is the same as what you used on your LG.

Some users may open a new contact website, and the new version does not allow you to export contacts. The new contact page has blue stripes at the top. Click “Go to the old version” to automatically redirect to the old contact page.

Next check the top of the box to select all the contacts.

After that, expand the “More” drop-down menu on the right and select “Export”.

Step 3: Sync Contacts

If your imported contacts do not appear on your iPhone, you need to carry out the operation of sync contacts. Open “Settings” on your iPhone, select “iCloud” and enable the “Contacts” option inside, wait a moment for your iPhone to complete the sync. If the “Contacts” option is already enabled, please turn it off and then re-enable it.

There is a vital prerequisite for this method that Google will not close the old version of the contact page. If Google does that in the future, we won’t be able to export the .vcf file from it, and thus this method will not work.
