I had Nokia 5610 ( S40 v5 ) mobile, and recently i got a new Android mobile ( HTC Desire S ). Now, when i put my sim card in my new phone i get all contacts which were saved in SIM memory, but there were lots of contacts in phone memory. I would like to import those also. How can i do that?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Is there any way to get the rest of your contacts onto the SIM card? – Al E. Jun 21 '11 at 17:17

You will need the Nokia PC Suite tool but here is the easiest and fastest way.

  1. Connect Nokia to PC using the PC-Suite
  2. go to Contacts - press CTRL+A (select all)
  3. go to Desktop/Subfolder - press CTRL+V (paste)
  4. that will create a .vcf file for each contact
  5. from a command prompt run the following command in the folderon your desktop where the files are saved: copy *.vcf contacts.txt
  6. open
  7. choose "Import" link in google contacts.

Really good answer simple and efficient import – Suriyan Suresh Sep 7 '13 at 4:13

If your old Symbian Phone have Bluetooth you can go to address book application, select all contacts and send them through Bluetooth to your new phone.

This will send a vcard file for each contact to your new phone and then you can import this data to your Android Phone.

I think the option to send a given contact via Bluetooth to another phone is: Select the contact and the Details > Options > Send business card

This worked for me, and seems the simplest way, thanks. – jackJoe May 30 '12 at 8:40
Well, are you sure you won't have to send each contact separately? – poige Sep 21 '12 at 7:39

If you save a backup of your contacts onto your Symbian phone's SD card, it appears as an NBF file. This is a zip file, which contains all your contacts in VCF format -- if you concatenate them all together, you can upload them to Google Contacts in one go.

For more details about how I discovered this, I wrote a blog post at the time.

Try using the Nokia PC suit to move all the contacts from the phone to the SIM card. This works in Samsung's Kies.
