Any advice on the easiest way to move contacts from a HTC phone to a S4?

Sync with GMail? Or Yahoo...
Or use HTC Sync (PC suite) to export contacts to your PC, then use Samsung's KIES suite to import them to your SGS4

Copy them to the SIM card then they'll be on any phone you put it in.

Synching with Gmail is the bizniz.

What's the current limit of sim contact storage?

Oh, you can also "share" contacts. Tick all and email them to yourself. Then, on the SGS4 open the attachment. Presto.

I have no idea, I don't know enough people for it to be an issue.

Me either.
But a problem with copy-to-sim: some phones (most, actually) ONLY copy contacts that have a number assigned. Many of my contacts are actually email-only... To get them to the sim, I'd have to add phony phone numbers...

I'd never considered that...

Good point, though.
