Re: C5 Contacts file format

C5 will import VCF format contacts. Copy them to the new C5s memory card in \Other\Contacts\


Then in the C5 contacts application you can select Create Backup -> Memory card to Phone to add those contacts to your C5.


The other thing you can do is, when you first power up your C5 it will ask you if you want to copy over your old phone's information, if you answer yes then the C5 will try to pull as much as possible off your old phone using Bluetooth. If you are lucky it will pull off SMS/MMS and other stuff.


You can also backup your 6120 using Ovi Suite and that will also try to restore as much of your old stuff as possible.
