    Hi, I have finally persuaded my husband to move on from his 10 year old Sony Ericsson non smart phone to a lumia. The Bluetooth connection won't send contacts across. Photos were accessed ok. And the phones have different sim sizes. Tried to connect old phone to PC but it won't see the contacts file. Just the pictures. Also tried a Sony Ericsson PC manager but that won't even see the phone.
    Does anyone have any ideas? Will we just have to type everything in!

    Thanks jimbim

    No, don't just type everything in.

    Your best bet would be using simcard, a new one, Lumia-sized simcard with an adaptor, so it will fit on SE as well. Plug it into SE, copy all contacts, plug it back to Lumia, import, done in less than two minutes.

    That's the fastest way I can think of.

    There really is not a fast way of doing it, make sure the contacts are saved to the phone and on windows in the file browser setting tick show hidden files, it might come up, but by the looks of it your going have to spend time putting back in all the contacts, once you done that it will save to the cloud and you will never have to worry about it again

    Well there is. Get the Transfer my data app and follow directions there. Had no problem transfering contacts from my Asha 300 and my father's 1810 to our Lumias.
