Import your Android contacts to Windows Phone
We talk you through the steps to copy your contacts from your Android handset to your new Windows Phone.
NB: Due to Android's dependency with Google accounts, you may find that your contacts already exist in your Gmail account. If so, you can easily sync your Gmail account with your Windows Phone: Just add 'Google' from the 'email + account' menu.
This guide was written using an Android handset with the Gingerbread (2.3.3) OS.
How to copy your Android contacts
From your Home screen tap on your 'Contacts' icon.
From your address book, tap the 'Menu' key on your handset (the one on the left).
Select the 'Import/Export' option from the popup menu.
In the Import/Export dialog box choose the 'Export to SIM card' option.
Before your Android will copy the contacts from your handset onto your SIM card, you'll be prompted to select the ones you want carried over.
When you originally set up your Android handset, you probably synced it with your Gmail (Google Mail) account.
If this is the case you'll probably see your entire email address book here, and we're guessing you won't be wanting to export all this to your SIM card...
Tick the check boxes of the contacts you want copied across.
Remove the SIM card from your Android handset and insert it in your Windows Phone.
From the Start screen on your Windows Phone, tap 'People'.
Look to the bottom right of your screen - tap the More menu '...' (represented by three dots).
Click on 'Settings'.
Select 'Import SIM contacts' and follow the instructions.
