Copy contacts or photos from your old phone

Want to copy important info from your previous Nokia phone and start using your new phone quickly? Use the Phone switch app to copy, for example, your contacts, calendar entries, and photos to your new phone, free of charge.

Your previous phone needs to support Bluetooth.

  1. Select > Settings > Connectivity > Data transfer > Phone switch.

  2. Select your old phone from the list, then pair the phones. Bluetooth needs to be on in both phones.

  3. If the other phone requires a passcode, type in the passcode in both phones.

    The passcode is for the current connection only, and you can define it yourself. The passcode in some phones is fixed. For details, see the user guide of the other phone.

  4. Select what you want to copy, then select OK.

If your old Nokia phone doesn't have the Phone switch app, your new phone sends it in a message using Bluetooth. To install the app, open the message in your old phone, then follow the instructions shown on the phone.

Tip: You can also use the Phone switch app to copy content from other phones later.
