Transferring contacts to iPhone 5

  Skinn 05 Mar 13

Hi,I want to transfer the address book of an old phone to my iPhone 5. Can't use the SIM as it's a standard one. I've thought about sending each contact to the iPhone via sms in the form of a Vcard but is there a better way?

The contacts are on a Sony Ericcson k300i which I've borrowed to transfer my contacts to (via SIM back-up) as my other phone was even older.

Is there a way of synchronising between the two devices? If so could you possibly provide step-by-step instructions as I'm not tech savvy :">?

Otherwise what would be the quickest way to input multiple contact details?

Thanks in advance

Use your PC as a bridge between the two. Apart from that, there is no other way to do it.
