    To the iPhone? Today one of my friends are buying an iPhone. They have tons of contacts. Will bringing the Sprint phone to best buy and transferring the contacts to the iPhone actually work?

    they should, but then its on a different carrier so it might not. You can always call Best Buy and ask.

    I know some BestBuys can do contact transfers, but you'll have to ask the one you go to. Or you can save your contacts via Google and transfer them yourself.

    Verizon offered to transfer my contacts from my Sprint Pre to my iPhone, so it can be done (granted they sold the Pre2, so it would not have been an issue). If Best Buy can't do it, have your friend go to one of the carrier stores that he switching to. As a customer, they should do it for him with no questions asked.

    Like everyone else suggests, have him consider putting contacts on GMail so that they do not have to deal with this in the future.

    Oh yea, the phone we will be going from is a Sprint Rumor touch. Do you think Verizon or Best Buy transfer the contacts from that phone?

    Yes, either one of those two will have the ability to transfer the contacts for you.

    Best Buy should have a Cellebrite machine to do the transfer of contacts. If they don't, stop by a corporate store, they definitely should have one. Good luck.
