I think the headline explains my dilemma. Samsung's app does not support a transfer between these two devices. Short of moving each contact one by one is there a more technological way of doing this?
Here are two ways to sync contacts from Android to Android via Gmail. One is to sync the contacts from a Google backup, which we would show you in this part. And another way is to send the contacts as a vcf file to Gmail.
To accomplish the contacts transfer from a Pantech P2050 to a Samsung Galaxy S9, all what you need is the Transfer for Mobile, which is a professional yet easy-to-use phone to phone data transferring tool to transfer data from a Pantech P2050 to a Samsung Galaxy S9. Transfer for Mobile can recognize and transfer overall file types, including contacts, apps, SMS, photos, videos, music and more from your phone and it also provides the phone backup & restore ability.
Simply backup your contacts to the SIM that you will be using to your Samsung Galaxy S9.

Hope that helps.
