    Hi all!

    This may well be already on here, but just in case it's handy for anyone transferring from Nokia to Android (at least HTC Hero).......

    1) Use Nokia Sync to copy all of your contacts to Outlook Express.
    2) Connect Android phone to your PC and use your Android phone sync software (i.e. HTC Sync) to sync from Outlook to the phone.

    Worked for me! Except a couple of issues;

    1) Seems that the house number on addresses is missing on the HTC phone (I guess that field in the Nokia address book does not exist on this HTC Hero, so can't be 'copied' across).

    2) In the Nokia, you can have multiple phone numbers for each contact with unique 'tag' (i.e. "Mobile- personal", "Mobile - Work" etc. etc.). The HTC doesn't seem to able to manage this, so some numbers not copied across.

    Still, better than typing the whole lot back in, fresh! lol ;)

    I just used Goosync to sync my Nokia contacts up to Google directly. Then they were ready for me as soon as I got my G1.

    I synced my nokia 6301 to Outlook, then exported and uploaded my Outlook contact list to my gmail account. Gmail synced to the myTouch. It was a life saver, nearly 400 contacts.
