    This page describes 4 ways.

    I'd avoid method 1. There are lots of apps you can install but some of these steal your contact information.

    I've read horror stories about Kies, method 2 so I'm suspicious if that really works.

    Method 3 is not for me because I don't want my contacts in gmail.

    The only method I'd consider is Method 4. Of course, you might not be able to open and view the .vcf on your PC so here is more information about that

    I have under 50 contacts on my Samsung J3 Emerge and those consist of a name and 1 - 3 phone numbers. I simply hand wrote my contacts.

    Thanks for your answer. I'm going to go into my wife's contact list and transfer to my account.
