How to import your contacts to your Windows Phone
You've just got a brand new phone, but before you start calling and sending messages to your friends you need to copy over all of your numbers and contacts... Never fear! We show you how.
The process of copying your contacts to Windows Phone changes depending on the handset you are transferring from. To make things easier we've split the guide into sections for each mobile platform, please select your old phone from the following list:
I have an iPhone
I have a BlackBerry
I have an Android
Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone* For those you have bought the new Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone, use the "Contacts Transfer" pre-installed app. Just switch on Bluetooth on both devices and follow the on-screen steps.
Import contacts from any other phone
If you own anything other than an iPhone, BlackBerry, Android or Symbian device, you can copy your contacts simply by inserting your old SIM card and hitting a few buttons.
Finish setting up your Windows Phone
Once your numbers have been safely copied to your new handset, there are a few other things you might want to set up.
You can add all of your email accounts (Hotmail, Gmail, Exchange), social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), Xbox LIVE to play games, track your achievements and play games against your friends, and sign up for a Zune account to stream and purchase music.
