    If like most people you use a Google account on your android phone, import your contacts to your google account, then they will be on any future android phone as soon as you sign in.

    It depends. If you saved contacts on sim card and the new phone has the same type of slot, then you can transfer the sim card directly. If not, then you should first backup contacts to computer, then import into new phone.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Open Contacts. You can reach this from the contacts shortcut in your app drawer or home screen, or via the contacts tab in your phone dialer.
    2. Press the Menu button.
    3. Select Import/Export.
    4. Select Export from SIM.
    5. Click Select All, or manually tick each contact you wish to copy to the phone.
    6. You may be asked where to copy the contacts to; select the appropriate option.

    Want to transfer contacts from one phone to another Android phone, nowdays you can use Google account or Mobile Phone Transfer tool. With it, you can directly transfer contacts between mobile phones.
