Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

I can't seem to find any good source that explains how to do this! My sim card has no contacts on it, and you cant export them from the iPhone to the sim card, I'm lost as to what I can do to keep my contacts! Anyone know how to transfer contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

Re: Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

Hi mate,


Enable Bluetooth in both your iPhone and the 920, and use the Transfer My Data app by Nokia that should be on your 920. If it is not, check the Store on your device for it. Follow the instructions and all should be well!

Please note that you should update to the latest version of Transfer My Data to ensure that everything is copied over to the best that is possible, check the Store for the latest version, that is 2.1.1.4.

Re: Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

All versions of the iPhone should work every time with Transfer my Data.  What error message are you seeing?  Is the iPhone set to discoverable, i.e., are you inside the Bluetooth menu on the iPhone?  Did you try turning Bluetooth on/off on the iPhone or rebooting the device?

Hi guys,

In worst case scenario you can also use this app for PC and Mac to transfer your data over: www.markspace.com/welcomehome/nokia/

Re: Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

I have a Iphone 4 iOS6 and I only get a message saying that it does not support

 

These are the messages I get on my Iphone

Control that "Mobile Phone" is on, within range and redy to be paired" free translation from swedish.

"Pairing failed, "Mobile Phone" not supported

 

The nokia 920 simply reports that id does not connect.

 

So in short

 

They both recognise the other unit but are not able to pair up.

 

What now. I'm not too keen on manually typing in 350+ contacts

Same here.  I wonder where the positive reviews are coming from from all the Windows Apps. 

 

Another problem is with the Ebay App.  Haha, You can not respond to messages or anything as it says Java Required or something like that.  Then hooking up skype seemed like I had to re invent the whole thing.

 

Come on Microsoft, Step up and fix all your apps, there is only a few anyways.

Iphone 4 IOS 5.1 worked perfect with the Transfer my Data app, all my 487 contacts have been successfully transfered over bluethoot, and it has taken 2.13 seconds.

Re: Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

I wasn't able to initially.

I then headed to the Marketplace, updated my Transfer My Data app, and the pairing finally worked.

 

Transfer worked flawlessly.

Move your contacts to your sim card. Insert sim card in to your iphone 4. Go to settings>mail, contacts, calendars and then select import sim contacts. If there are no images on the data card they must be saved on the phone once again copy to data card, connect card to pc copy to pc and then you can transfer your contacts from iPhone to your Lumia 920.

Re: Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

I have tried to transfer iva sim card, it is the easiest way. But there is another better solution for you to backup your contacts to computer and transfer to Nokia phone, that is the iTransfer. This program can help you backup all contacts to computer. Then you can add to your OVI account and sync to your Nokia 920

Copy contacts to SIM card, but you know that the size of Nokia is different with iPhone, so you need a professional card sets to help you. Then insert the SIM card to Lumia and restart the phone.

or you can goole mobile transfer to help you.

Re: Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Lumia 920?

That's about the worst way to do it as you will loose almost all additional data (if youhave any) but the name and phone numer (extra numbers, address, mail etc..)
