How to Transfer Phone Contacts from Nokia To Android

How many of you shifting to Android? I know almost all people are shifting to Android, by Google. Do you know why? Mainly because of less cost and more features. Earlier we have to spend $200+ to buy an Android operating system mobile but time has changed a lot. Today i can see Android mobile range starts from $50. Earlier Shop owners boozed about Nokia for their customers for their own profit. As Profits is more in Android mobiles when compared to Nokia, Shop owners started boozing about Android mobiles to uneducated people, which make them to choose Android mobiles without knowing about Android. I’m not criticizing Android, To be frank I too love Android and i started hating Symbian after using Android device. I have seen many people who shifted from Nokia to Samsung, HTC, LG etc which runs on Android OS. They feel difficulty while transferring contacts from Nokia to Android. If you’re one who failed to move phone contacts form Nokia to Android. then this guide suits perfectly for you.

  2. Sumit says:

    It works fine, but I guess their must be some alternative method too :) Thanks.

  3. wapflyer says:

    Now I successfully copied my nokia phone contacts into my new android phone.thanks.

  4. Ravi Shankar says:

    Nice and simple. But please make a correction in your instructions. I think the command should be {copy *.csv allcontacts.vcf}

    Nokia exports your contacts into a .csv file and not .vcf
    If it exported into .vcf file, you could simply copy into your Android phone without conversion.

    Thanks

  5. I thought of adding Adfree in this list however, as I am also an Adroid developer, I believe that since I give my applications for free having some advertisements and earning and earning some money from them is no big deal for the user. Samba Filesharing is indeed a useful app. In order to transfer files over wifi from and to my android device I am using ES File Explorer.

  7. Thanks for the solution, the simple way is save all your contacts in your sim rather saving them on your handset

    I think there is a better way to do that. You can copy all the phone contacts to SIM and insert the SIM into Android and copy the contacts. Please correct me if I am wrong…..
