Default Copying/Moving Contacts from iPhone 4 to Samsung Galaxy II

So my Samsung Galaxy II is supposed to be arriving today. How do I copy or move all my phone contacts on my iPhone over to the Samsung?

Have a mate who did this recently, in itunes (sigh...) export your contacts as a csv/xls file (as if you were going to back up your phone)

Take downloaded spreadsheet into your gmail account, click contacts, click import contacts from file and import all your contacts to your Gmail account.

Then on your new Android phone simply sync contacts with your gmail account and your all done.

Also make sure when you create contacts in the future that you do this on your gmail account and not your phone!

or you can simply follow this guide

Thats all you need

I used it to transfer E71 contacts to iPhone4 and 3GS.

Contacts are stored online so you can restore them to any device afterwards

And how do I do this?
Read the link Doso linked. Use iTunes -> Info Tab (on phone) - > Sync contacts with. That's how I moved all my iPhone contacts to the SGS2 too.

I know if I hacked into Google my priority wouldn't be grabbing phone numbers that's for sure .
