    Some Bluetooth-enabled devices have Bluetooth file transfer capabilities. If you stored your contacts on another Bluetooth-enabled device, you can recover your contacts.

    2. From the LG G2 home screen, tap the All Apps icon.
    3. Scroll to and tap Settings.
    4. Tap Bluetooth.
    5. Tap the Bluetooth switch to ON if it isn't already selected.
    6. Your phone searches for available Bluetooth devices within range. Tap the name of the other phone.
    7. If a Bluetooth pairing request displays, verify the passkeys match and tap Pair.
      • If prompted, enter the passkey and tap OK.
      • If you're unsure of the passkey, try entering 0000 or 1234 (the default for most Bluetooth phones).
    8. After you've paired your phones, begin the transfer of contacts from the other device.
    9. After the transfer is complete, open the file on your LG G2 and follow the prompts to load your contacts into your contact list.
    10. Note: Sprint recommends you save your contacts to your Google account.
