Thread: Transfering Contacts


Forum: General Mobile

I've transferred my Vodaphone Sim from my Samsung Galaxy SIII to my Nokia N8 but the contacts haven't gone with it. Normally, when I've switched phones before, the contacts have gone with it but not this time. How can I get my contacts onto my new phone please?

    Before you criticise someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
    That way, when you criticise them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Re: Transfering Contacts

    I normally keep everything sync'ed with my google account so when I moved phones then contacts are already there.If you go into settings, account and select your google account there should be an option to sync contacts, mail, photos, etc

    The I use titanium backup to copy over text messages and call history. It can also do wifi networks and a bunch of other stuff. Don't remember copying over any other settings.

    Re: Transfering Contacts

    You can check that your contacts have sync'ed

    log onto your gmail account through a web browser on your PC.
    Under the google logo at the top, it should say gmail and have a little drop down box option
    Click on the arrow and select contacts

    You should now see your contacts. At least you can confirm that they have been copied from your old phone.
