This post involves methods of transferring contacts from one nokia phone to another without using an intermediate computer Some of methods existing are

1.Using Data transfer application in your Nokia phone
DataTransfer is a built in application in nokia phones which is a convenient method for transferring data, including entire folders, from one phone to another. It can transfer an entire Contacts, Calendar, or Gallery folder over bluetooth and hence has all the convenience of wireless methods

Compatible phones include all Nokia phones based on S60 software and newer editions of Java phones.

Improve battery life of your phone

Batteries are important part of any mobile phone, whether it be a cool 5 mp camera phone or a simple black and white phone. Batteries play an important role in maintaining your phone in good conditions. Here are some basic tips to ensure that you can extend the battery life. These steps can also be applied when your running low on phone charge

1. Turn off your Bluetooth whenever your not using it.

2. Lower the brightness of your screen.

3. Always full charge your phone. And remember to charge only when the battery indication becomes low. This ensures proper charging - discharging cycle which eventually decides your battery life.

4. Set the Power saver time-out and the Light time-out to the low values (you’ll find them in the display settings).

5. If you are not using an application close it. active applications running in the background can hog up the juice and make your phone sluggish. (minimized application can be opened by long pressing the menu button in symbian)

6. Games – it’s fun to play games on your way to school/office but they are power-hungry beasts; I can’t tell you not to play games but think about your battery when you are playing.

7. Turn off your phone when you have no signal coverage and is not expecting one.
