    Can I create new Apple id when setting up for new iPhone 6 while transferring contact info from old Apple id? If yes, how do I go about downloading my contacts from my old iPhone 4s?

    Please let me know. After two years with iPhone, I still don't know how it works. :eek:

    You can setup a new AppleID when configuring the new phone, but that won't get you access to your contacts from the old ID.

    If you still have the 4S, search the app store for "vcard" and there are some free apps that will let you export your contacts to a vcard format file. Export that file then email it to the new phone. When you open the vcard file from the attachment it will allow you to import those contacts to the new phone and they will then be in the iCloud account for the new AppleID you made.
