Nokia Contacts Backup


Smeagol

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I asked my friend to backup my Nokia contacts before giving him the cell, he gave the backup as a .docx file containing .vcf form of contacts. He does not remember what or how he did it but i can not import them back to my new nokia cell

Help !

PS: I think he selected all .vcf files then dragged and dropped them into a Microsoft Word Instance.

With Nokia Suite, you can select to make backup up of your phone.

You can select what you want to backup like contacts, messages, pictures, music and so on.

Nokia Suite will make an NBU-file.

Then you can import the NBU-File to your new Nokia phone.

Bye

There are many ways you can restore contact in .vcf files. but i recommend you get netquin antivirus (later you can uninstall it).

Connect your phone to the PC and choose mass storage, then copy the vcf file to the root directory of your card *(or wherever you can remember in in the device)*. Disconnect and then open netquin antivirus, goto settings, then contact backup. choose restore and then you can select the .vfc file you copied earlier on. your contact shoul now be restored.

You can also do the same restoring using older version of nokia pc suite (i dont know for newer version), where it comes with different component installed.connect your phone to the pc, choose contact, from the file menu, select restore and locate where the .vfc file is located. then you wll have your contacts restored.

if it is like that, open the docx, click file / image vcf it, drag it off to the doc such as the D drive or folder
If you do, then you will get the file. vcf on the drive / folder

:showoff: :)

This is exactly what it is happening khatulistiwa but the problem is that if i double click on any vcf file inside Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook will show the contact info but once i drag the vcf file and drop it in a folder and try to double click on it again all contact info are gone (no first name, no family name, no mobile number, etc)

I tried opening it with notepad here is what i got (Inside Notepad):

Contact(49).vcf C:\Users\patrick\AppData\Local\Temp\Contact(49).

I thought it was an error, because. vcf in good condition will then be opened with notepad displays

BEGIN: VCARD

VERSION: 2.1

REV: xxxxxxx

N: xxxxxxx;;;;

TEL; CELL: xxxxxx

X-CLASS: PUBLIC

END: VCARD

on each contact that is therein.

1. Open Contacts app on your Symbian phone.

2. Open Options and Select Mark > Mark All.

3. Open Options and Select Copy > Copy to Mass Memory / Memory Card.

4. Connect the phone to the computer and copy the contacts folder to computer [eg. - D:\Contacts]

5. Open Command Prompt [Press Windows Key + R and type CMD]

6. Navigate to D:\Contacts in Command Prompt and enter the following command: “copy *.vcf allcontacts.vcf”

This will combine the multiple vcf files you copied over from the Symbian phone to that contacts folder into a single vcf file.

You can then import this all contacts.vcf file in Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, iCloud or even directly in your Android phone.
