I just got a new phone (aaaawwwwwwwww I love it!!!) and I want to transfer my contacts from my old phone to the new one. How can I do that?
Both of my phones are LOCKED to different providers.

Im not an expert but couldnt you bluetooth the contacts over ? The normal way to do it is to put your contacts on the sim card then put sim card in new phone and transfer over I guess that wont work because of the different networks in your case.

Most mobile phones in Canada have the sim card locked away inside the phone, you have to take it apart to get at the sim card. :(

I'm assuming you would have mentioned if it were an Android phone. But just in case you forgot, you can use google voice to store all of your contacts online, and then any phone you use can synch up with that.

I don't know what kind of phone you have but you might want to transfer (move) all your contacts from phone to you sim card. Then transfer the sim card to your new phone, then move/copy all contacts from sim card to the new phones memory.

As for LOCKED to specific provider, their are codes to unlock it to set it as open-line phone.

What's your phone's brand and model?

I used myFUNAMBOL to transfer contacts from one phone to another before. http://www.zapatec.com/solutions/portal.php
It's a 90 day trial but it wont take 90 days for you to transfer your contacts ;-)



Now I just use exchange server, but exchange isn't an option for most people.

Another possibility is to copy all your contacts to an SD card using your old phone (they usually end up in vCard format). Then put the card in your new phone and import them.

I did this to copy contacts from my Nokia N85 to my HTC Desire. Of course, both phones need an SD card slot, and the ability to read/write contacts.

What kind of phones are these? And do they have internet connectivity on them?

Depending on the phones you may be able to use Bitpim

For non-smart phones I like searching Howard Forums for information as well.
