So you have your new Nokia X (or XL) and need to get your contacts on to the phone. If you have a Bluetooth-enabled phone or smartphone that has your contacts already, in a few minutes, you can have all your contacts transferred over to your X smartphone. Here is what to do.
Step 1. On the Nokia X, look for the app named Contacts Transfer (see the yellow arrow) and launch it:
PS: If you can’t find it on your X, open the Nokia Store and search for it to download.
Step 2. Next up, you will see the Contacts Transfer start page. Tap the blue “Continue” button:
Step 3. The next page shows you a list of available Bluetooth devices. If the device that you want to transfer from is not listed, tap the blue “Scan for devices” button at the bottom of the page:
Step 4. You will see this page next as your X device tries to connect to the other device:
Step 5. Then, it will prompt you on both devices to pair. You have to tap “Pair” on both devices:
Step 6. Then you need to choose your transfer settings. Select the first option. The second option is not essential if you don’t already have existing contacts on your Nokia X. Once you’ve made your selection, tap the blue “Continue” button:
Step 7. Now, your contacts start being copied over from the other phone to your X. Have a small cup of ice cream. It won’t take long:
Step 8. Here, we see all 2,096 contacts copied over, and it all happened under a few minutes:
Now, that all your contacts have been copied, you still have adequate time to finish your small cup of ice cream. After all, you are ready to connect now. If you have any questions, please ask away.
You can also import your Google Contacts on your Nokia X
