How to Transfer Contacts from Nokia to Samsung Galaxy S9/S8/S7

Mar.. Posted by to Android Topic

Nokia Symbian powered smartphone has been gradually stepping away from our eyes since the increasing popularity of Android and iPhone. What makes thing worse is that Nokia switched its own Symbian OS to Windows platform since the Microsoft's acquisition made by 2013. I have been playing around with my Nokia N70 for almost 4 years, the best selling device at the time it was announced. But now, it's the time for a change because of the lack of apps on Nokia Store. New emerging apps are consistently published on the market but seldom of them are available for Symbian OS. This is really disappointed as N70 user, and urged me to make the final decision.

However, it's not an easy job to choose a proper one from so many options. Some of my friends recommended Samsung Galaxy series as a consideration. I did some research and finally agreed on the suggestion. Right now, I had a Samsung Galaxy S7 at hand, pretty satisfied with the large screen and pre-loaded interface. In order to make it work, the first step is to transfer my contacts from Nokia N70 to this device. Sadly, I had as many as 200+ contacts stored on my N70, It's a challenging task if I typed them manually onto my new device.

Luckily enough, I found out a professional tool, named Androidsoft Phone Transfer that can easily handle this in a much more comfortable way. There is no manual work involved from the entire process. The software will cover all dirty tasks in the background. It takes only a few minutes to fully transfer all my contacts from Nokia to Samsung Galaxy. Besides contacts transfer, text messages, videos, music and photos are also transferred to the new device at the same time. Nokia Lumia, Nokia N series, E series and C series are well supported..

Note: The following tutorial only works for Nokia phones that are powered by Symbian, So if your phone was one of Nokia Lumia series, then please follow this guide to transfer contacts instead. The method is a bit different than the following, which is much easiser. You need to first sign in Microsoft account on Nokia Lumia phone, then backup the phone via Settings. Then export the contacts from Outlook and import them on Samaung Galaxy phones.
