Copying contacts to SIM card and then place it to the new phone was an option 15 years ago. Nowadays all my contacts include a picture, address, web links, e-mails... etc. All this info is not supported in SIM address book. So, not an option. I already managed to sell my Lumia phone and bought an HTC running with Android OS. Man I`s satisfied now. DLNA support, can watch pictures and films on TV wirelessly...
i'm a follower of nokia, i was expecting something big with windows phone after all nokia ditched it's own baby (symbian), but things seems to be lousy and unplanned, it's getting crazy here using windows phone. NOKIA just foget it's tag line. keep things simpler
@bluetooth - If nokia believes it is moving ahead(next Gen) with wp7.5 by not allowing users send /recieve files via bluetooth its just not happening, it is too early to stop bluetooth file transfer service, and make people force use clound/online services it has made people go mad on nokia, yes nokia should take this up with microsoft as microsoft is known for confusing itself in a planned planner this time they have nokia involved , Nokia is /will lose lot of revenue due to just one of this drawbacks, Nokia needs to view things from it's own business point not from microsoft point. nokia is in the business of selling handsets, not to count number of hits on websites, nokia may believe that they have low end handsets for such services, but people want to use best with existing services.
If Nokia believes they have done the right thing then next best thing would be to stop SMS services, let all the users use e-mail instead of SMS.
People like to share music, file, pics and thoughts via bluetooth this makes then happy and comfortable with the service, It is too early for them to be completely dependent on clound service, world is moving into making things simpler and more human, why is nokia making it complicated. atleast in this part of world atleast millions of people use bluetooth service for sharing files.
@Memory Usage - for some reason every application downloaded occupies more space then specified while downloading, users can allocate space in wp7.5 for videos, pics and music but under other/apps they are not exactly sure which app is using how much of space, atleast they can keep the best app and remove other if there is space crunch.
Lastly if microsoft is still rigid on their terms then nokia should seriously think of going back to it's own baby (symbian), and incorporate all the best views/technology from wp7.5/android & iphone, what symbian needs is a good face lift.

No one knows what skydrive is and most people still use dumbphones, what about it?
There is no alternative to Bluetooth.
I work in a bank, half of my dept (9) have iphones, another half samsung Galaxy of different models. One guy has N8. None of them knows what skydrive is, and they don't "attach files in email", they use it mostly for talk, sms, a little gaming, surfing and sometimes camera.
What you suggest is laughable, you think that everyone is a geek?
That is BS, if you were on the beach or you didn't have internet, the best way to transfer a pics to your friend would be via Bluetooth. This is stupid. nokia is not making the experience easier, instead you are pushing clients to galaxy phones
did you realize how many step did you write?
Bluetooth, activated, pair, transfer. Finish. This is stupid if nokia don´t change This, the will lose millions of clients
The Bluetooth Share application will be available once you have updated your phone. The 7.8 update is currently being released. You can check the availability of the update by connecting your phone to Zune software.
