    Thank you so much for adding this! I was actual
    ly on the phone with a Sprint Tech Support person, but told him I’d found instructions and to just hang with me in case they didn’t work…..amazingly, this 54 year old non-tech cell phone lady did it on my own successfully! YAHHHHHH

    While this might not be the best method, I have found it best served what I needed when transferring my Android HTC contacts to my iphone 5:

    First, I don’t have a Gmail account, and even if I had, I would not wish to mix my email addresses with my iphone address book by syncing Gmail with my iphone address book. As a result, I used the above method in order to manually export my Android HTC contacts to my computer and in turn import them to my iphone 5.
