    I'm switching to the galaxy how do I restore my phone without a computer? Also how do I save my contacts for my next phone. I plan on selling this phone before buying the galaxy.

    Check if you can save contacts to SIM card,buy some Lightning connector flash disk like the iXpand to save pictures and documents,then I think you can erase and reset the phone as new in phone settings.

    DO NOT try to store your contracts on your SIM card!

    What noobinator said is what you want to do.

    Set up your Gmail account on the iPhone and sync contacts to Google, then retrieve them on your new phone. Used to be possible, anyway.

    I do not do Google or GMAIL but you could do as the poster above advised. That would keep your contacts intact.

    Best of luck!

    OP is switching to a Galaxy.
    Is iCloud accessible from a Galaxy (android)?
    I'm thinking that the Gmail account will be more useful... :D

    There is an app in the app store called my contacts backup, it copys your contacts and emails them to you. Once you open the email on your new phone ypu get the option to save. Oh and the apps free
