I am changing my mobile from Symbian(Nokia 5800 XpressMusic - S60v5) to Android(Samsung Galaxy SII). I want to move the following data from my old mobile to the new one somehow.

  • Contacts
  • Calendar Entries
  • Bookmarks
  • Notes
  • SMS, if possible

Other data like images, videos etc I can transfer using my memory card.

I have synced my contacts,notes already to Ovi Sync and calendar entries to Google calendar via Mail for Exchange.

As devnul3 has said, using Google for the contacts and calendar (I was using Google as an Exchange account, so I didn't have to do anything special). Just set your Android up with the same Google account.

Moving SMSs can be done with SMS Migrator, which can be found in the Android market. There's also the SPB migration tool, which looks like it can do everything but notes.

For contacts and calendar entries, move the contacts to the google cloud with google sync, then activate the android device with the same account.

Note:if you created more than one google calendar, you will need to make sure they're all selected for sync on the phone (open the calendar app, menu > more > calendars).

Not sure about notes/SMS/bookmarks, although if you can get the bookmarks off of symbian and into chrome you can use chrome marks or chrome to phone to move them to android.
