How to Import Contacts from Lumia to Android Phone

-- Friday, October 23, 2015
If you have a Windows phone and an Android phone, for example an old Lumia 830 and a new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, you may want to import contacts from Lumia to Android so as to keep the two phone books synced. However, copying data from Windows phone to Android is extensive. Without so much tech knowledge, how do you do that? Some may export vCard to the computer and then import it to the Android. Others may turn to Outlook mail and Gmail. For me, I will use Phone Transfer as it is pretty fast and simple.

Phone Transfer supports mobile data migration. Even though the source phone and destination phone are based on different system, Lumia phone and Android phone for example, you can bring data from phone to another. It supports contact transmission. Phone numbers and contact info from Lumia can be imported to Android with one click.
