Transferring All Your Contacts from a Nokia Phone to a Google Account for Use on an Android Phone

If you’re moving from a Nokia mobile phone to an Android phone, or perhaps you simply want to import all of your contacts into your Google account, you may find that the Nokia Ovi Suite only lets you import all your contacts as individual .vcf files. Google doesn’t currently allow you to import multiple files at once, so unless you want to import them one-by-one you need this little tip:

  • Open a command prompt (Win+R then type cmd)
  • Change directory to the one where you’ve saved your many .vcf files (type cd then the directory structure)
  • Type: copy   /B   *.vcf   all_in_one.vcf

Voilà! You now have one big VCF file which will zip up to your Google account in no time 🙂
