How to Transfer Contacts from Lumia to Android

Just when you are happy and rejoicing on having got a new phone for yourself, you find out that transferring contact and other data from your old Lumia device to your new phone running on Android isn’t easy. Here we will discuss a much simpler method to transfer contacts from Lumia to Android in this article.

Part 1: Transfer Contacts from Lumia to Android using Outlook

Transferring contacts from a Lumia to an Android is a very extensive process. Also, it requires you to have some technical knowhow. The process comprises of three steps:

  • • In the first step, contacts from the Lumia device have to be exported to an Outlook account and downloaded in the form of a .csv file.
  • • Then in the second step, this .csv file needs to be uploaded to Google contacts. Once the contacts have been stored in the Gmail account, you need to sign in to your Android device using the same Google account to have all his contacts synced to his Android device.

Follow these instructions to learn step by step:

Step 1: Sync contacts from your Nokia Lumia to your Outlook account

1. Go to the “People” app on the Windows phone, scroll to the bottom to locate “…” and then go to “Settings.”
