Transfer contacts from one nokia phone to another part 1

Very often people find the need to transfer the contacts from their older mobile phone to a newer one or transfer contacts to their new second phone. 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

1.Find an application on your device called Transfer, Data Transfer, or Data Mover. Usually found in the Tools folder by default.
2.Switch on Bluetooth on both phones
3.Open the application and follow the onscreen instructions to move the supported data formats to another paired, compatible phone.
Compatible phones include all Nokia phones based on S60 software and newer editions of Java phones.

2. Using Memory Card
This method can be used to transfer contacts or files only in phones which use the same type of memory card, irrespective of the phone manufacturer
First copy the contacts to memory card

In nokia phones:-
Open contacts> Options> Copy > To memory card
Remove the memory card from the phone and insert it in the second phone

Now copy back to the phone memory
In nokia phones:-
Open contacts> Options> Copy > From memory card
voila!! your entire contacts has been copied to your new phone.
The above two methods copies the contacts as itis. Hence it will support multiple phone number entries, other details like email, address, webpage etc

3. Using SIM card
This method is the most primitive form of contact transfer. Just copy your contacts to the sim card and copy back to the newer phone. This method limits the transfer by the simcard limit and can only used to transfer phone numbers and hence is not by anyone nowadays
