  1. Hello

    I am having trouble transferring my contacts from old Nokia 2690 to my new Samsung A3. The Nokia used a normal size sim and the Samsung has a Nano. I have tried smart switch and bluetooth and the phones don't seem to talk to each other. I was able to back up my Nokia contacts to Nokia PC Suite but unable to get them into Samsung software.

    I have also followed the various youtube videos. Any suggestions please?

    Contacts can be exchange by exporting from one to the pc and then importing to the other.
    Common formats are VCF and LDIF

    Try changing the name to remove the .nbu

    Thanks for the advice. In the end I was able to export the contacts to my computer and then import from the Samsung.
