iphone contacts export - import


I have to move all contacts from IPhone 4 into IPhone 6.
Usually is no problem with that using ITunes backup but in this case I have almost 400 contacts tied to lotus email account configured way before. Nobody using that anymore. Cannot delete that account because I'm loosing all assigned contacts. Backup and restore thru ITunes is not working also because resotre everything except contacts tied to lotus account. Do you know any software where I can easily move contacts between two apple phones ? Any recommendations ? Maybe you have some idea how to fix that problem.

What lotus email do you have? Lotus Notes? Or cc:Mail?

If it's Lotus Notes (now IBM Notes, and still very alive, contrary to your remark), you can try the procedure described here: http://forums.ilounge.com/ipod-classic-legacy-ipods/3257-lotus-notes-address-book-ipod-contacts.html#post20032

Or have IBM Traveler installed...
Did you set your iPhone 6 as new and have not synced iCloud contacts yet?
Enable Contacts in iCloud

Sign in to your iCloud account
Go to Settings > iCloud
Make sure the switch for Contacts is turned on.

Looks like it is exchange account.
In addition I have info:
These settings are installed by the profile "IBM Lotus Traveler" for email account.

If you have Traveler, I think you have to configure your iPhone 6 in Traveler, so it replaces your old configuration for the iP4, and then your Contacts should arrive automatically.

See also this page, that explains that you can have multiple mobiles attached to one account: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/xpDocViewer.xsp?lookupName=Getting+Started+with+Lotus+Notes+Traveler#action=openDocument&res_title=2.5_Catering_for_user_with_multiple_devices&content=pdcontent

And, er... Exchange account??

Thanks for information.
Because lotus is not active for that user I had to find different way to do that.
I was using IExplorer by Macroplant to export all contacts from IPhone4 and save into vsd files. Then I was using Opal-Import to import multiple vsd files into outlook. Finally I synced Iphone 6 using itunes and replaced all contacts on device by contacts from outlook. Done.
