Transfer content using OneDrive

Upload your Office documents, photos, and videos to OneDrive to easily transfer them from your old phone to your new Lumia phone.

To easily upload and manage your content in OneDrive, download and install the OneDrive app from:

  • Google Play for an Android phone

  • iTunes Store for an iPhone

  • Store for Windows Phones (if not already in phone)

  • Mac App Store for an Apple Mac

  • for your PC

You need a Microsoft account to sign in to OneDrive.

OneDrive may not be available for all phone models.

  1. On your old phone, open the OneDrive app.
  2. Tap send icon, and select what you want to upload.
  3. Select upload.

You can now sign in to OneDrive with your Microsoft account to access your content on any device and download it when you need it.

Tip: To transfer Office documents, you can also save them directly to OneDrive. To access your documents, on your new Lumia phone, tap Office iconOffice > OneDrive.

Using services or downloading content, including free items, may cause the transfer of large amounts of data, which may result in data costs.
