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?

  • Is there any way to get the rest of your contacts onto the SIM card?

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 http://google.com/contacts
  7. choose "Import" link in google contacts.

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.

  • Well, are you sure you won't have to send each contact separately?

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.
