Cell Phone Contacts Transfer

I need to transfer my contacts from a Samsung Intensity II phone to an LG Envy. Does anyone know of a free program available that can do this that I can run on my PC? One that will work via the USB cable provided with the phones.

If you have a SIM card phone (AT&T), you can save them to the card and transfer the card over to the new phone. Contacts fall into two categories, one is Phone and one is SIM card, but they can be redesignated. THAT is unless your phone has no card.

If you have Verizon you can use the backup assistant. I believe it is free. At least I hope it is because I just trashed my phone.

Verizon made the Baskup Assistant free a couple of years ago. You still have to download it to some phones, though.

If you don't have Verizon, take the phones to the carrier's retail store. They may charge you for the service.

I have Verizon and neither phone has a SIM. So I need to download Backup Assistant to my PC or to each of the phones (or both)?

Ok, I have backup assistant on both of the phones, but when I log on to my Verizon account, I use my primary phone number and only those contacts appear. How do I view my secondary contact list? I have a family plan and I'm attempting to transfer my wife's contact list to another phone. I don't see where I can switch numbers.
