Porting phone book from Nokia 6230i to Samsung S7220

There must be a smarter way to do this… But I’ll describe my combersome way anyway. It depends on having windows somewhere.

Old phone: Nokia 6230i

New phone: Samsung S7220

Goal: Get all phone contacts from old phone to new phone.


  1. Install Nokia phone software on windows
  2. Sync phone content with Outlook-Express (make sure Outlook-Express has an emtpy address book before)
  3. Export the address book from Outlook-Express as vcf or wab to a file
  4. Install Samsung phone software on windows (does not work with wine)
  5. Import address book from vcf/wab
  6. Synchronize with new phone using Windows software from Samsung
