I hate electronic devices!!!

So today is entitled "how to do it old-school," or in other words, it's too freaking complicated for my 55 year-old 'don't really give that much of a shit' attitude emanating from this Cro-Magnon (yes, ancient European Neanderthal) cranium of mine. So I dropped and broke yet another electronic device (me Hulk. Arghh. Hulk smash), this time my Samsung phone. Realizing I always hated it, it was too big, and that I like my work IPhone better, I bought the IPhone 8 (yeah I know, but I just can't wrap myself around paying $1300 for an X). Then I get in my truck, hit the Apple car play, and low-and-behold, there's nothing in my contacts even though I sat at the AT&T store for 35 minutes and endured the snotty Latina college kid that oozed "God you're such a old loser for not overspending on your phone" as she did her "magic" on it (which turned out to be nothing). So I "DuckDuckGo'd" how to transfer my contact list (Google is so, like, for grown-ups). This is what I got: "Go to "Settings" on your Samsung Android phone, select "Accounts", add account and sign in your Google Account, then enable "Sync Contacts" to backup all your contacts from Samsung Android phone to Google. Step 2. Navigate to your new iPhone 8, open Settings > Mail Contacts Calendars > Add Account." Or I could look at a YouTube video. Maybe it was the "navigate to" part where they lost me, or the signing into the Google account which is a password I haven't used in a couple years and forgot so that would be a shit-show, or the fact I don't want to download all the additional AT&T contact list crap I haven't ever guess who's adding them back in one at a time...the old-fashioned way. As for Whatsapp, my translator app, the CCA fishing tournament app, and whatever else I put on the other phone, I'll figure that out in time. Probably as soon as I replace the IPad I dropped.
