Unfortunately, due to some circumstances, there are limited ways I can accomplish this… so please understand first… I am trying to help someone else, this is not for me (gotta spell out clearly exact steps to do)! The person has an iPhone 5 and just got a 6. Lost (forgot, she has been having a very rough time the past 5 years, part of which involved brain surgery) the password to her gmail account and her Apple account. Having all sorts if difficulties getting these back, so I am telling her start from scratch on the 6. No there is no iCloud she ever set up… and without that password, she can’t do anything now. I am advising her to start a brand new apple account for the new phone. The major issue is all the contacts she has in the Contacts app. I know she can use the vcf format to go from one phone to the other (probably through iMessage and sending to me so I can send to the new phone). The problem is being able to select all the contacts at once. THIS seems a major stumbling block. Spent an hour googling stuff, everyone that “promised” a way to transfer the data without iCloud ALL said to access it first! D/oh!
Does anyone have any clever trick to accomplish this? Someone wrote about an app called WeSync, but far as I can tell it ain’t in the AppStore (tried looking on my iPad). One app I came across was a paid app, but the free trial won’t allow ANY transferring… if I can get a select all, I think I can make it work.
