How do I transfer contacts from my Android phone to the iPhone 5?

How do I transfer contacts from my Android phone to the iPhone 5? Is there a cross-platform app?? Or do iPhones let you sync contacts from Gmail??

You can sync contacts from outlook and Gmail with iPhone, if your android has the ability to do this also then you can sync your contacts from your android to Outlook/Gmail then sync your iPhone to that source to recover them.

Thanks! I'm sure my phone numbers are all saved on Gmail, so that should work nicely :)

Chill... spine... last year a friend's FarceBook was hacked. From there, his Gmal account was hijacked. He spent 6 months trying to make up for the trouble he caused himself and the 200 contacts affected by his behaviour.
Don't cringe. Online services are dead convenient. I get that. But do consider that you never asked all your contacts if they are okay with you putting their numbers and possibly their real addresses in the cloud. ;)

The Gmail acct he registered with... and made it public, and used an almost identical password... I really don't know why I didn't punch him.
Another 'friend' thought it's a good idea to mess with the "jester" on Twitter... whole different kettle of fish, and one I shouldn't re-open...

But anyway - it is a dilemma - no matter how careful one is with ones 'details', all it takes is one friend who feels the need to have your phone number, email address, real address and birth of date all over the fr*gging place...
And don't forget: 'hacking' of that sort is 10% coding and 90% social engineering.
It's amazing what info some folks on Twitter (and I assume elsewhere) will part with for some encouraging remarks.... I once offered someone to source a hard to get real book.
Without further ado I had their credit card number and address in my DM-box. I was on Twitter 4 weeks at that point, had maybe 30 Tweets.

Good work all round from him then. Oops.

Well you do exude trustworthiness.
Makes me think of the "what's your porn star name" things that crop up on forums which just happen to use your first pet and mothers maiden name to generate them.... And all the sites that like to celebrate your birthday with you.

You can transfer all that contacts from Android to iPhone 5 with the help of Android to iPhone Transfer, which can transfer contacts between Android phone and iPhone in seconds.

You can try to transfer your Android contacts to computer first and then sync your iPhone to computer.
