Have your nearest and dearest instantly at your fingertips. Use the Transfer my Data app to easily copy your contacts and text messages from your old phone.
If you have an older Windows Phone device, or have previously backed up your contacts in Windows Live, add your account to your phone, and import them to your phone straight from the service.
Your old phone needs to support Bluetooth. The contacts on your old phone need to be stored in the phone memory, not on the SIM. The app does not work with all phone models.
- On your old phone, switch Bluetooth on.
- On the start screen of your new phone, swipe left, and tap Transfer my Data.
- Tap continue, and switch Bluetooth on.
- Select your old phone from the list of found devices, and follow the instructions shown on both phones.
If your contacts are written in a language that is not supported by your new phone, the contact information may not be shown correctly.
