Tips: How to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7

Many windows mobile phone users don't know how to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7 when they get the new winodws phone 7 device. This full guide will shows you how to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7 easily.



Tools you'll need:
1. iMobileTool Contacts Backup to transfer contacts to CSV files.
2. Windows Live account.

Here is the step by step guide on how to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7 device:

Step 1. Backup contacts from windows mobile phone as a .cbf file to your computer with iMobileTool Contacts Backup.

Step 2. Import contacts from .cbf file into iMobileTool ContactsManager.

Step 3. On iMobileTool ContactsManager, Click File->Export->CSV File(*.csv)



Step 4. On the Field Configuration screen, choose the configs you have saved named Outlook and then click Start.

Now you have saved the windows mobile contacts to a Outlook format CSV file.

Step 5. Import your Outlook CSV file into Windows Live.
1. Open a web browser, go to Sign In, and sign in to your Windows Live account.
2. Click Manage, and then click Import.
3. On the "Add people" page, click Outlook.
4. Select radio button "Microsoft Outlook (using CSV)".
5. Browse to the CSV file you exported to your computer.
6. Click Import contacts. If you've already added your Windows Live Hotmail account to your phone, you're all done. Your contacts will automatically sync to your phone when you sign in to Windows Live on your phone.

Note Windows Live limits the upload file size to 500 KB for CSV files. If your CSV file is larger than 500 KB, the file will fail to upload. To resolve this issue, open the CSV file in Excel and split it into several files. You can then upload each file to Windows Live as long as the total file size doesn't exceed the 500 KB limit.

Note Windows Live has a storage limit of 6500 contacts per user.

If you haven't added your Windows Live Hotmail account to your phone, follow these steps:
1. On Start, flick left to the App list, tap Settings, and then tap Email & Accounts.
2. Tap Add an account, and then tap Windows Live.
3. Enter your email address and password information, and then tap Sign in.
4. Once you're signed in, your Windows Live Hotmail contacts will sync to your phone.

Done!! Now your windows mobile contacts have been transfered to windows phone 7.

Hope it helps.

Just a dumb question but, isn't that what Microsoft's My Phone does ? Click sync on your current phone and go to your new phone and click sync ?

Unfortunately, MyPhone isn't compatible with Windows Phone 7, so a workaround was needed.

Re: Tips: How to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7

you can also set up a free acct on soocial.com, install the cab file for winmo on your winmo device, sync your contacts, then sync them to your live acct. up to 250 contacts can be synced using the free acct.

Re: Tips: How to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7

What about transfering calendar and notes? This info is also greatly appreciated if anyone knows the answer. Thank you

I am a big Microsoft fan but I have to say what were they thinking. Even if they didn't want Myphone to work with the new OS they still could have had a Myphone to the new cloud service transfer. I am assuming it is skydrive. Still waiting on my new Windows 7 phone.

Re: Tips: How to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7

The easy way to transfer contacts is from Outlook. Contacts in outlook can be exported to a csv file. In the SkyDrive there is an option to import from outlook. You enter in the CSV file to be imported and it adds the contacts. Then on the phone I set the sync to happen as info appears. It automatically added all of my contacts. It was easy and fast.

Thanks for the info, it saved me a trip to sprint. I find it annoying when sellers spam forums with crapware that isn't needed. He made accounts on forums all over the web to spam that program.

Re: Tips: How to transfer contacts from windows mobile to windows phone 7

What about the way where you get the Windows Live Outlook plugin from Microsoft and then copy your contacts and calendar items over to the live portion of your outlook? That will sync with your live account and then you can sync your WP7 with the live account and have everything there, including calendar items.

I don't currently have a WP7 (waiting on Verizon) but I did try out the outlook plugin and it's pretty slick. Took me about 5 minutes and all my stuff was online with my live account.
