I made my mind to purchase an new iPhone 7 to replace my current phone (Galaxy S5). I am new to iOS and don't want to lots my contacts during the switch. Most of the online tutorials suggest using Gmail for contacts sync but unfortunately I didn't have an Google account. Please recommend a program or app to help me transfer Galaxy S5 data to iPhone 7.
No, I don't use Gmail at all. thanks
okay, if didn't use Gmail, i would recommend you using Mobiledic Phone transfer application to sync contacts between Android and iPhone, what you need: a computer, two USB cable and phone transfer.
Did you have a Google gmail account?
This is done from the iPhone, and will transfer the contacts from Google to the iPhone:
Open “Settings” then go to “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” and choose “Add Account”
Select “Other” and look under “Contacts” to choose “Add CardDav Account”
Enter the following details into the fields, then tap “Next”
User Name: firstname.lastname@example.org
Password: your password
Syncing starts immediately, exit out of Settings and launch the “Contacts” app to check on the progress, the entire process may take a while for large address books.
if it doesn't work with you, maybe Mobiledic phone transfer program could help you transfer contacts and other data like messages, photos from Android to iPhone 7 or 7 plus.
Move your contacts to your sim card. Insert sim card in to your iPhone 7 or sync your contacts with gmail and then restore to in your iPhone.

I've been using Move to iOS until I found a better alternative in Google Play. The old version of this Phone Transfer was not very impressive. But they released a brand new version not long ago. And now it is really amazing. I use it to transfer photos, music and more with a very fast speed. The connection is also very convenient.
Maybe you can try Mobiletrans, it can do it in an easy way. You can download a FREE version and have a try first. By three steps, data transfer phone to phone complete.
Here are the following steps that I used to transfer my contacts from my android phone to my iPhone 5S:
1. Go to contact and export your address book to the android device
2. Connect your phone to your computer and copy the .vcf file on it
3. Create a new e-mail and send the e-mail to the address that it is configured on your iPhone device
4. Attach the .vcf file and send the e-mail
5. Go to your iPhone and look for that e-mail
6. Once you found it, open the attachment and upload the contact to your address book
And if you want to transfer other files like video you must convert them to the right format first with some kind of converter like video enhancement software.
