    Default Transfer of data from old NOKIA phone to another new one.

    Hello everyone,

    Has anyone ever attempted to transfer phone data (eg. contact details saved in the phone, appointments, etc.) from an existing phone to a newly bought one? (with the exception of SMS messages as they are saved in the SIM card, hence it will be transferred to the new phone easily)

    I am toying with the idea of getting a new phone (NOKIA 6230i) and I will need to transfer my data form my existing NOKIA 6220.

    TIA.

    Data cable, infra-red and bluetooth? Which ever technology your phones support. Or you can try using the good old notepad

    i use FMA2 to shift from T610 to K750, works like a charm, or even use outlook also can...

    CYRN, your suggestion seems to be most comfortable for me. I think the Nokia PC Suite will be supplied together with the new phone. So, it is that simple huh! The data will be transferred to the new phone automatically?

    you could always download the latest version of nokia PC software from nokia: http://www.nokia-asia.com/nokia/0,,58843,00.html

    6220 and 6230i are both supported. btw, if you're considering the 6230i, do take a look at the similarly priced 3230 which is a smart phone and supports symbian applications and games. the screen is much bigger too.

    I thought that all SMS messages are stored in the SIM card? No?
