      • 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 Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and follow the prompts to load your contacts into your contact list.
