How to copy contacts from one icloud account to another?

I need to transfer most contacts on my icloud account to my wife's icloud account, and I was wondering if there's a "copy and paste" way to do it. Manually coping each contact would be too time consuming. I could sign on to the icloud on her iphone, and all the contacts would appear, but I really don't want her to use my Icloud account. And when I tried  to sign off from her phone, all the contacts disappeared.
So I thought the easiest way is to copy contacts on my icloud from a pc, then paste them to her account. Is this feasible?

Might be easiest to export (via File, Export) a vcf file,  with all contacts  and then import into your wife's contacts app (via File, Import).

    How can I transfer contacts from one icloud accunt to another.
    After the transfer I want to delete one icloud account have one running.

    Are you a Mac or a PC user?
    If Mac, export the contacts from Address Book as vCards, log out of the 1st iCloud account, and log in to the 2nd iCloud account, then re-import the exported contacts into Address Book.

    How do I share several contacts from one iCloud account to another iCloud account?

    Hi charlesfromlymington,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    I understand that you would like to share a contact. Please use the information in the iOS 8 iPhone User Guide (page 139) for information on this process. When the recipient receives the contact, if iCloud Contacts are enabled, it will be added to their Contacts.
    manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/1000/MA1565/en_US/iphone_user_guide.pdf
    Share a contact. Tap a contact, then tap Share Contact. See Share from apps on page 35.
    Cheers,

  • TS4020 Is there a way to copy or transfer contacts from one icloud account to another?

    My wife and I just upgraded from the 4S to the 5C, but apparently we were using the same icloud account, and now we need to separate them so that we can make changes and not have it affect the other phone.

    To migrate your wife's phone to a new account, start by saving any photo stream photos whe wishes to keep to her camera roll (unless already there) by opening her my photo stream album, tapping Select, tap the photos, tap the share icon (box with upward pointing arrow), then tapping Save to Camera Roll.  If she only wants to migrate a copy of the contacts and not other data, go to Settings>iCloud on her phone, turn Contacts off, choose Keep on My iPhone, then scroll down and tap Delete Account (which only deletes it from this device, not from iCloud; your phone won't be effected by this) and choose Keep on My iPhone and provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create her new account and choose Merge to upload the data to the new account.
    If she wants to migrate a copy of all of the iCloud data to her new account, and is syncing notes with iCloud that she wishes to transfer to the new account, you will need to open each note and email them to her so she can later copy and paste the text into new notes created in her new account.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, choose Keep on My iPhone and provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone when prompted.  Then sign back in with a different Apple ID to create her new account and choose Merge to upload the data to the new account.  Once you are both on separate accounts you can each go to icloud.com and delete the other person's data from your account if you need to.

  • How do i copy contacts from one apple id to another?

    how do I copy contacts from one apple id to another?

    I assume you mean you want to copy them from one iCloud account/ID to another.  If they're synced with iCloud go to Settings>iCloud, turn Contacts to Off, when prompted choose to Keep on My [iDevice], then delete the iCloud account, sign into the other iCloud account, turn Contacts back to On and when prompted choose Merge.  Note: when you delete the account it only deletes the account from the device, not from iCloud.  If you then want to go back to your previous account, delete the iCloud account from your device, when prompted choose Delete From My [iDevice], sign back into your other account, turn your iCloud data syncing back to On, and when prompted, choose Merge.

  • I dragged my notes from one iCloud account to another iCloud account and they disappeared.  How do I find them?

    I dragged my notes from one iCloud account to another iCloud account and they disappeared.  How do I find them?

    Hello reallilybart,
    Thank you for the question. You can export the calendar events from your previous iCloud account and then import them into your new iCloud account.
    First, use these steps to export your events from your original account and make note of where you save the file to:
    Export a calendar’s events
    In Calendar, click the calendar’s name.If you don’t see your calendars, click Calendars.
    Choose File > Export > Export.
    Choose a location for the file, and then click Export. The events are exported in an iCalendar (.ics) file.
    Next, quit the Calendar application, and log out of your original iCloud account in System Preferences > iCloud.  Then log in with your new iCloud account and open Calendar.  The final step is to import the file into the calendar for your new iCloud account
    Use these steps to import the calendar events:
    Import events into a calendar
    If you want, create a new calendar for the events.Add or delete a calendar
    Choose File > Import > Import.
    Locate and select the calendar file that contains the events, and then click Import.
    Choose the calendar you created or another calendar to add the events to.
    You can also drag a .ics file to Calendar. The events in the file are added to the calendar that’s highlighted in the Calendar list.

    You move the song files to /Users/Shared/ and then into iTunes from the other Mac OS X user account.
    If you want to change the iTunes Store account associated with them, you need to redownload them from that account.

    How do you switch from one iTunes account to another on your apple tv?

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    I assume you do mean a different account and not simply a different iTunes library. Unfortunately, in order to switch accounts, you would need to log out and log in to the second account.

  • Can I move music and movies from one icloud account to another icloud account?

    Can I move music and movies from one icloud account to another of my icloud accounts?

    No.  Purchased music, movies and other iTunes media is permanently tied to the Apple ID used to purchase it and can't be transferred to another ID.  (Your purchases are stored in iTunes in the Cloud under the Apple ID used to purchase them.)

    The apple account music you want to transfer >> go to itunes store and log into the apple account that you want music to be put on your ltunes library...sign in then after you sign in then look down on right hand side for the word "Purchased" and those are the accounts songs and you can download them for free.
    Note that this does not change the iTunes account of these songs. This simply adds them to the iTunes library you are using.
    Also note than once you do this, you will have to wait 90 days to redownload any iTunes purchases from any other iTunes account, including the original iTunes account.

    No it is not!

  • How to move my contacts & pictures from one icloud account to another?

    I need to create a new icloud account because Ive been using my husband sign in - he just got an i phone and now need to move my stuff to another account but I dont want to loose my contacts, pictures videos, etc?/
    Please help!!!1

    So far as your photos are concerned, just make sure that you move any photos that you have in photo stream that you wish to save, across to your camera roll for stop
    So far as contacts go, turn off contacts in your iCloud settings and you will be asked if you wish to keep the contacts on your device, you can then safely delete your account from your phone. When you add your own account to the phone and enable contacts, you should be asked if you then wish to merge your contacts.

  • How do I transfer photos from one icloud account to another?

    I recently switched back to iPhone when the iPhone 6 Plus came out.  I had the iPhone 4s before I got an android so it's been a while since having an iCloud account. I could not think of my password when logging into my iCloud account when starting up my new phone so I created a new iCloud account.  I FINALLY figured out my old password and was able to log in my old 4s phone and see my old photos and thought "WOW I need to save these somewhere." I cannot figure out how to get them off on my old iCloud account... I logged into my old iCloud account on my desktop and did not see those photos though.  I have photos on the old iCloud that cannot be replaced, such as photos of family members who have passed away since, PLEASE HELP.
    Is there a way to transfer photos over to my new iCloud account from my old one?
    Thank you

    If the contents that accumulated on the new phone while the spell of Alzheimer went away is not indispensable, perhaps the quickest way would be to reset and wipe the phone then reregister it to the original iCloud account so you would get all your old content/apps/etc. back.

  • How can I transfer "notes" from one icloud account to another, and other account questions

    Hey,
    I currently have 2 icloud accounts. (In total I have 4 seperate apple ids somehow, 1 @me.com, 1 @icloud.com, 1 @gmail.com, and 1 apple id. But that's a problem I'll talk about later).
    Right now, all of my notes got deleted from my iphone, but they are on the icloud account A: (@me.com account's icloud.) When I reconnect this account to my iphone, the notes are there. However, when I turn off note syncing in my iphone's icloud settings, I'm not prompted to "keep data on iphone" (like I am prompted with contacts). Instead, they are just deleted from the iphone. So there's no way to connect the icloud account A, download the data, and reconnect icloud account B.
    How can I get these notes from icloud account A to icloud account B (or just getting it from icloud account A to my iphone.)
    And while I'm at it, how can I get the @icloud account that was linked with the @me.com account to get linked to the @gmail.com account.
    Sorry if this is confusing.

    Let me rephrase my comment...  I used Windows to sync my data without icloud, we decided to switch to mac and purchased a $2000 osx driven machine only to find out apple has "secretly" disabled mobile sync services and replaced it with icloud syncing.  There was NO documentation stating this fact before my purchase, it was only realized when users started running into syncing issues that apple disclosed mavericks no longers uses mobile syncing services and "requires you to use icloud to sync device information" on this forum.
    They removed a integral part of my privacy without telling me, or warning me, before i spent money on non-refundable merchandice.
    These are not mindless, I was forced into mavericks when i purchased a new mac... All other versions of OSX provide modile syncing services.
    And I was not threatening lawsuit, i was stating a thought that this leavs apple open to a lawsuit for people who want their data kept private, they are FORCING the use of icloud now.
