Hi I changed my Sony X10 mobile today for a Nokia N8 I backed my contacted and SMS and all my personal details before sending my Sony back to orange, now I tried to restore all my SMS, photos videos and contacts to my Nokia but I can't do it can anyone help me achieve this thank you very much guys !
Need more information on how you backed them up
If to a PC Photo's music and video's are easy, just copy them to the appropriate folders on the mass memory
Contacts, best bet is to import your contacts from gmail into outlook and then use ovisuite to sync them
don't think sms are going to be easy if possible at all, may bea ble to do something with csv format
Hi I backed them up with back up and restore to my memory card now when i use nokia ovi to restore my sms and contyacts and photos it does not reconise the file format !
What Pavillion said,
Two different OS's with two different languages, formats etc,
the only way of transfering between an android and n8 is via a pc
the back up files are completely incompatable
Or if you use Google Gmail,
As Google mail seems to be hosted on a MS Exchange server (or something compatible) You could set up both phones to sync via mail for Exchange.
You could them sync the PIM details from the Android to Google, and the sync it back to the Nokia phone.
If you continue with this method you get to sync back your details to Google and set times per day/week/month, so a great way to keep it backed up
You would need to configure the phones for mail for Exchange rather than Google mail settings, but as long as you use the m.google.com in the settings, it all seems to work well.
Well it did for me with the Motorola Defy to my N8.
Not sure if this link will display,
Borrow someone's Android and restore your backup on it, then use http://www.bloove.com to copy data (contacts and sms only) from Android to Nokia phone
