Use Google Contacts and sync then reload them to your new phone.

Also store them on your sim card and they will go to the new phone when you move the sim card.

Unfortunately storing contacts on your SIM card is very limited these days as it will only store Names & Numbers due to its limited memory. If you have additional details for your contacts such a Photos, Email Addresses or any other information you need another solution such as alanrwood's first option.
