Hi to the both of you!


Thanks for your post and welcome to the forum.


In order for the Contacts transfer app on the Lumia to work the other device needs to support Bluetooth 2.1 with the Phone Book Access Profile. As far as the N95 goes that model does not support this profile in Bluetooth so the app does not work. I can't say about the Samsung models.


In this forum there are a number of threads which cover this question like this one.


You will find an extensive article on how to transfer contacts and calendars from a Windows PC or Mac in the Pool of Knowledge.


Hope this helps, let us know how you get on!
