This post will let you one a simple trick to transfer or move all your contacts from your nokia s40 symbian mobile to new android phones such as samsung,xperia,micromax etc.
I have been using nokia c3 since 2 years and recently bought my first android phone. xperia!!!
As like all my first big task was to move my 600+ contacts to my new android phone. had googled alot for it and finally I achieved it using following method which I found the simplest one, so thought best to shared it with all of you.
- Create a backup file in your nokia phone.
- For that go to Menu > Settings > Sync and backup > Create Backup
- Select only "Contacts" for backup.
- It will create a backup file at a location you specified.
- Copy that backup file in your PC.
- Rename its extension to ".zip" or ".rar" (make sure to uncheck "Hide extensions for known types" )
- Then extract this file. It will extract all your contacts in root folder named "32" in ".vcf" format.
- Copy this folder into your memory card
- Then go to "Contacts" in your android phone. press on the 3 grey dots on the upper or bottom right of the screen.
- Select Import from the list. Next, select Import from > SD Card / external memory.
- It will search for ".vcf" files and popup you the choice to import specific files or all (select "Import all vCard files" to import all contacts)
- Wait for a while and its done.
You may surprise as it also preserves and imports the pictures assigned to contacts by you. :-)
Hope this simple trick has saved your time to import contacts.
