Transferring contacts from an old phone to the iPhone

Transferring contacts from an old phone to the iPhone

Getting contacts off your old mobile phone and onto the iPhone may or may not be a straightforward process. If you already have your contacts stored neatly in Outlook (Windows), Address Book (Mac) or a Yahoo!/Gmail Address Book (Mac/Windows), the process is as simple as syncing via iTunes. If all you have is a set of contacts stored on an old Nokia 6300, however, the process is a bit more involved.

There is a iSync plugin for the Nokia 6300, you can find it here. Once you have synced your contact to the Address Book on the Mac you can use iTunes to sync the contacts to your iPhone.

"You could copy your contacts form the 6300 to the SIM card, and then import them on the iPhone.

This of course isn't ideal if your contacts have multiple numbers/addresses, but at least once they're on the iPhone you have more options for cleaning them up. Some options could be syncing to Google Contacts and merging the duplicates; or syncing to Google Contacts or Outlook, exporting to a spreadsheet for cleanup, and then reimporting."
