-- Friday, October 23, 2015
"I have been trying to figure how to switch my contacts over to my Galaxy S6. I had a Nokia Lumia 520 and I really don't want to manually put my phone book in, but I don't see where they were saved. If you have easy way to transfer contacts from Windows phone to Samsung Galaxy, please let me know."
