    agree with Ajeeth

    Thank you very much for taking the time to record the above transfer instructions for contacts from Nokia to Samsung. I’d tried everything that the phone had to offer without success. Your instructions, unlike so many on the Net actually worked and could be followed.

    You proved to be a time and grey hair saver.

    I will be checking your site first in future to see if you have information on what I require. Cheers…

    Amazing how simple this procedure is but manufacturers don’t tell you anything. I did what you said in the E71 portion and then I just transferred the SD card into my Lenovo – Bingo ! Thank you !

    I´m not sure, but I assume this transfer works only in PCs (Wintoosa), not in MacOSX, I do get the copying work in nokia E75, but the bluetooth does not find any contacts anymore in MAc (in none of the folders seen in bluetooth browser or in nokia decice browser for Mac, neither in Kies nor in Finder window… I did get the Android to sync with my macBookPro but I still have my contacts in the f….king Nokia, did safety copies of 3 former Nokias too (E7 and A 95) but those files do not open anymore since the phones are totally dead – the usb-connection-outlet was broken and therefore was not possible to plug in for power… this is somewhat “interesting” …

  • Juuso

    Ahh, had BIG diffilulties, but at last I got the contacts to my macboopro via taking the lovely SMALL memorycard to my Mac and AHH I FOUND MY CONTACTS and got them to mac table… I guess the export to Android will be a lot easier. Goodbye NOKIA´S… it´s been a long time with you (and i am finnish, nokia was born here as Mobira…!), now I expect the chinese wisdom to do it a lot easier… :D

  • Louis

    This worked! Thanks a million juzhax!!

    A better solution is an Android App called Transfer Contacts:

    It doesn’t need any wires or Memory stick. Uses Bluetooth, works like a charm.


  • Nice, Try SmartIO App, which can easily transfer content wirelessly, like pics, videos,contacts, calenders like mentioned here:

  • Mauricio Gracia

    The NOKIA part works as expected for the ANDROID part in KIT KAT 4.4 follow thes steps mentioned here
