    This is something I'd like to know too, although I'm moving from iPhone..

    If someone is able to list the import/export methods for contacts available in Galaxy S, that would rock.

    Its called save all your phone contacts to your SIM Card and then once you get the galaxy put your SIM Card in and boom all your numbers are magically there. I am surprised that this is News to you all.

    Can you not use Mail for Exchange to hook up to a Gmail account to sync contacts and calendars, then import those onto your new Android?

    Our SIM cards here cant save additional information, its only the name and the number, if you linked 2 numbers for that contact with his company name and position and other details they dont get copied over to the SIM.

    I noticed there is a V-Card option on my Nokia 5800 and it can copy the contact information to the SD card, maybe the Galaxy S can read that info as well ?

    I just used this. Worked like a charm. Pretty sure Galaxy S can sync Google Contacts for obvious reasons.

    Took me 5mins to sync my contacts from iPhone to my old Nokia and to Google Contacts - all wirelessly. Up to 250 contacts for free.

    Hi everyone, I can answer this question as I am currently an owner of this phone(tks to the deal between Singapore and samsung)

    With nokia, you should be able to sync all your contacts and calendar to outlook through nokia Pc suite. I was previously using Samsung omniaHD (symbian) and sync the phone with outlook through samsung pc studio.

    After which, using Samsung Kies (which does not support OS X as of yet but 3rd party doubletwist and syncmate shld tide u over), you sync your new phone with outlook through kies.

    Do check out my vids and pictures here :

    Do post any questions or things you want me to try in that thread thank you =)

    I went from a 5800 to a Nexus One..
    What i did was to sync the 5800 with google contacts (do a google search on how to do it), and when u link ur google account to the Galaxy S, everything will be there...

    Why does nobody mentione google sync?

    Here are the instruction for nokia (symbian):
    Setup Instructions : Google Sync - Google Mobile Help

    And once you have that synced, once you initially set up you new android phone, it will pull those google contact, right?

    Peace of cake.

    EarlZ if you have the V-Card option you can upload all of your contacts to your google account (obviously you would've made one by now) and then sync from your phone.
    give us a shout if you're struggling

    nice to see you on here :)

    first of all move contacts to phone. install mail for exchange (on ovi). Set it up to sync contacts to gmail. when you enter your gmail in galaxy, it will automatically download all the contacts. After that, never again save contacts on sim.

    I was going to ask the same question. When I I upgraded from my SE 850 I just bluetoothed the contacts folder across. Took about 5 mins and all the info including pictures appeared in the SGS contacts menu. (Don't know if Nokias are as straightforward though)

    You can transfer the contacts by
    "Send business card" via bluetooth.
    Worked on my Nokia N-95 to SGS-I9000 :)

    Question was already answered months ago. Please don't bump old threads without a good reason.

    Ok so! The easiest, no time consuming at all and the most effective method I could find is to sync your Nokia contacts with google and get them on your android phone. On most Nokia s60 phones an application named "mail for exchange" is per installed or can be installed from Nokia store for free. To setup a google account in mail for exchange follow instructions on google support. As a new user I can not post links, so just google for "how to configure a google account in Nokia mail for exchange"

    While setting up, only select contacts to be synced and select "no" for everything else if your only goal is to transfer contacts. When setup is complete, in "mail for exchange" app opened, select "options" and select "synchronize". All your contacts will be on google in seconds. Later, just sync your android phone with your google account and all your contacts are there.

    Keep in mind to be patient. "Mail for exchange" pauses for a moment after every 50 contacts have transferred. This is the most helpful method I could find after a whole night's research and it really worked for me.
