How To Transfer Your Contacts, Messages & Other Data From Symbian To Android

If you have ever tried moving from a Symbian based device to Android you would have noticed that getting your contacts, messages and other data across is not as easy as you may think. Unlike switching from a Nokia to another Nokia, there is no switch app to copy data across and importing .vcf cards on Android doesn’t always work, even if you use third party clients.

Enter SPB Software’s Migrate To Android tools, that help you copy text messages, contacts, call history and bookmarks to your shinny new Android phone. In order to transfer data, you need to install the SPB app on your Symbian device as well as on Android. Then it is only a matter of running the apps and moving data either over the air via SPB’s server or using a memory card.

How To Transfer Your Contacts, Messages & Other Data From Symbian To Android

When you first visit the Migrate To Android website you will be asked to enter your ‘From’ and ‘To’ devices and then its a simple matter of following the details on screen instructions.

When using the online method, the data is secured by a PIN and encrypted. It also deleted from the server completely after 12 hours. The SPB Migration Tool is simple and very to use, it will however set you back by US$9.95 (449.64 INR) when you buy the app from the Android Market.

  1. I think a syncml server is cheaper. And i don’t mean to set up one yourself, but rather use a public one like the former Zyb now bought and renamed to Vodafone360, which, despite the name, works for other carriers to.

  2. There is no option here for Atrix….is one coming???
    Also is there an option for moving the CALENDAR ITEMS?
