How to “Bump” Contacts & Pics Between iPhone and Galaxy S4 ?

Bumping contacts or pictures between iPhone and Galaxy S4 Android is easy, but you do need the following items to make it works:

  1. Bump apps on both the iPhone and Galaxy S4.
  2. Location services on both phones.
  3. Internet connection on both phones.

Once you’ve got those things ready, you’re good to go.

Let’s take transferring a contact from iPhone to Galaxy S4 to illustrate how Bump works.

  1. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Privacy and turn on Location Services. After that, make sure Bump has accessed to Location Services data by turning it On.

If you’ve more than 1 Gmail account on your Galaxy S4, you can go to Bump Settings to select the Gmail account that will save the received contacts.

In my testing, I needed to restart the phone or restart the app by doing a “force stop” on Bump app in the Application Manager in order for the new selection to take immediate effect. Hopefully, you’ve better luck than me.
