Transferring contacts to new phone

I used att Mobil transfer to bring all contacts from old iPhone to new iPhone 7. I only seem to be able to transfer 30 of 188. The msg says I need to configure those left after the transfer. Does this mean I have to input manually???

Re: Transferring contacts to new phone

The mobile transfer app does not work well with iPhones and there is really no need to use it. Just make sure your old iPhone is set to sync contacts to iCloud and when you sign into iCloud on the new phone, your contacts will be there. The best way to transfer info from iPhone to iPhone is backup the old iPhone to iCloud or a pc with iTunes and then use that backup to restore to the new iPhone. That transfers everything including contacts.
