HT204150 How to transfer contacts from one iCloud account to another

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 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).

  • 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 and delete the other person's data from your account if you need to.

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

    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.
    Share a contact. Tap a contact, then tap Share Contact. See Share from apps on page 35.

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

    That's not possible without redownloading it from the second account.

  • 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

    I currently have 2 icloud accounts. (In total I have 4 seperate apple ids somehow, 1, 1, 1, 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: ( 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 account to get linked to the 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.

  • How to transfer music from one itunes account to another on the same computer

    How do I transfer iTunes music to another comp account on the same comp. I have Windows 7 and I made my own Windows account. all of my music is on the iTunes on the other admin. account. So how do i transfer all of my stuff on iTunes to my own account? I've tried going into Preferences then advance but that's not doing anything. I signed into my account on iTunes but that didn't seem to help. Please give me something simple and not too long. I'm trying to do this as quick as possible lol. thanks in advance!
    I'm running the lastest iTunes. I just upgraded it today.

    Move the music files or the entire iTunes library to a shared folder.
    If you moved individual files, open iTunes from the desired account and drag them to the library in the iTunes application window.
    If you moved the entire library, launch iTunes with the Shift key held down and choose that instance of it.

  • How to transfer purchases from one Apple account to another?

    I've used my family's apple id for years, I've probably put $1000 into apps and music, but I'm finally moving out. My mom doesn't want me accessing her email so she's making me get my own id. I don't want to lose all the apps and games and data I have saved, so is there any way to transfer all those purchases to my account?

  • How to transfer iBooks from one iPad account to another.

    I am a teacher who will be taking on a new role at the school.  The school is going to give me an iPad with all the literature books the students will be reading.  These books were purchased through iBooks.  I already have an iPad and was curious if there was a way to transfer the books on their iPad, which were purchased through iBooks, to my iPad.
    Thanks in advance.

    You can restore the new iPad using an iCloud or iTunes back up (assuming you have all of those apps backed up), or simply redownload them from the App store or sync via itunes.

  • How to transfer music from one apple account to another

    So, for some reason I couldn't get into my Apple account to sync my new ipod 5 and get my music on it, so I was going to transfer my music to a new account that I had just made. I was still logged in on my friends desktop, so I synced it and got almost all of my old music. So for the past 2 hours, I've been trying to get my music onto my laptop. I've tried copy and paste, moving it to a usb, clicking and dragging to the desktop, clicking and dragging to drop into the device, but I've got nothing. What do I do?!?! Please Help!!! D:

    I have multiple Apple IDs. Is there a way for me to merge them into a single Apple ID?
    Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs.

  • How to transfer purchase from one iTunes account to another

    For a while I've been buying content through my mom's iTunes account, and just recently set up my own account. However I purchased a season of "Game of Thrones" while I was still using her account, and can only access the season through iCloud if I'm on her account. I was wondering if there was a way to still keep the purchase I made but switching it under another account (without having to buy it on the new account). The file of the purchase is on the same computer and will remain on the same computer, but just a different iTunes/iCloud user.

    Click here and ask the iTunes Store staff if they'll switch it. They probably won't.

  • How do I transfer Pages from one user account to another

    How do you transfer Pages from one user account to another on the same Mac?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    If you haven't modified anything, Pages is installed on /Applications. All users have access to this folder, identified as "Applications" on the Finder sidebar, so you don't have to move anything, because Pages will work on all your users.
    If you have installed Pages on ~/Applications (being ~ your user folder), then you have to move Pages to /Applications. After doing this, you will be able to access to Pages on all users

  • 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 can find the full article here:
    Calendar: Export and import calendars
