Transferring Contacts Using a Computer
Xperia™ Transfer is an application that helps you to collect contacts from your old device
and transfer them to your new device. Xperia™ Transfer, which you can access from
within the Xperia™ Companion software, supports mobile devices that run on iOS/iCloud
and Android™. If you are switching from an iOS device, the App Matching feature
suggests the Android equivalents of your iOS apps.
To use Xperia™ Transfer, you need:
An Internet-connected computer.
Your new Android™ device.
A USB cable for your new Android™ device.
Your old device.
A USB cable for your old device.
You may not need your old device. For iOS devices, you can connect directly to iCloud or use
a local backup. For previously owned Sony devices, you can use local backups.
