And What if your LG is broken and can’t be turned on or your LG phone is stolen? If your Google sync is on, you can go to Google contacts and export contacts to iPhone via vCard file.


Step 1: Export Contact File
Go to Google Contacts website on computer browser, log in your Google account that is the same as what you used on your LG.
Some users may open a new contact website, and the new version does not allow you to export contacts. The new contact page has blue stripes at the top. Click “Go to the old version” to automatically redirect to the old contact page.

Step 3: Sync Contacts
If your imported contacts do not appear in iPhone, you need to carry out operation of sync contacts. Open “Settings” on your iPhone, select “iCloud” and enable the “Contacts” option inside, wait a moment for your iPhone to complete the sync. If the “Contacts” option is already enabled, please turn it off and then re-enable it.


There is a vital prerequisite for this method that Google will not close the old version of the contact page. If Google does that in the future, we won’t be able to export the .vcf file from it, and thus this method will not work.
