Transferring from S3 to Note 3

I'm going to buy a Note 3 tomorrow and I'd like to transfer my contacts from my S3 to it. Most of my contacts are saved to my Samsung account but I think some are on my Google Account.

Is there a way to make sure they are all saved to one account and then transfer them over by just logging into that account on the Note 3?

Also, are there any must-have accessories for the Note 3 I should know of? I've seen the wireless chargers - do you have to have a special case for these to work, or do some of them work with the phone and a normal leather (or similar) case?

Any help would be appreciated!
Cheers

You just need to log in on your samsung and google accounts on the note and ull have all your contacts there, even apps can be auto downloaded to your new phone.

for accesories i whould recomend the spigen neo hybrid case, its a great looking case.

And alternatively if you're lacking an internet connection: Contacts --> Optionkey --> Import/Export.

For contact yes. But... have u experienced everytime u restore the contact from ur backup, ot always become double nd double? But not to all contacts. Some of them. Eversince my s series is always like that. I am a rom flasher maniac. And my contact keep on growing everytime I restore. Hahahaha. Not big issue, just curious.

If the contact already exists it adds a duplicate, yes. And if I show the Google, Samsung and SIM contacts at the same time as the restored ones.. Well, everyone shows up 4 times

Thanks guys.

All the contacts came over form Google and Samsung but I couldn't figure out how to get the 60 contacts from Samsung to merge with the 700 contacts on Google so that they were all on Google rather than some on one and some on another.

It doesn't really matter now but if I stop using Samsung Account I'd like them all to be on Google..

Cheers

Contacts --> Optionkey --> Merge Accounts? I'm a little hesitant to try it myself, as I have only my Samsung account set to display and my Google account has a load of contacts I do not want on my phone...

The merge account doesn't work well. There's always wrong account merging which is a headache to clean up
