Hi, I am trying to work out how to transfer my phone contacts from a sony ericsson c902 on 3 network to my lovely new Galaxy S2 on O2 network, and it is not straightforward:
- galaxy will not recognise the 3 sim card so cannot transfer contacts that way
- don't use outlook or similar so can't sync with it
- the phones use different memory cards so cant use them
- the sony ericsson website and pc suite will not recognise a samsung phone

.. I'm stumped  Crying  - any ideas?

@samsunggalaxy_s Ive needed to do this a couple of times. You can blue tooth them or export the entire list on you sd card. ...put the card in your new phone and import them...or you can back them up or sync them on Google then sync them to your new phone from Google.

thank you for the suggestions.. transferring via the sim card is not possible because the Galaxy will not recognise the 3 sim card.

However, both phones have bluetooth and I did persuade the old phone to export all contacts to the Galaxy as a .csv file.. I then spent some time looking for the file, but eventually discovered the Galaxy had just added the contacts to the existing google-synced ones.

My new problem is how to assimilate these two separate sets of contacts - the google ones with the phone ones, they have never previously met! There is tremendous duplication of names, and I suppose some manual editing will be needed. I see no way to speed the process. Hopefully it is a 1-off thing

Use Kies Contact Manager.

I had this issue when I first jumped to android.

I have some 400 Contacts which became 900 it took me 5 mins to just go and delete every single duplication.

There were duplications of 3 to 4 for some contacts.

Peace.

Well, it seems I have 2,050, but that is only because it has included every email address i have ever sent a message to!

On the whole I think I prefer the Gmail Contacts editing facility, which includes buttons to merge contacts, including one to merge all dupoications (182) though I didn't dare do that!

The Galaxy S2 is awesome..

@Jerrywh: You could use Samsung's excellent software Kies, and it does, as IronSingh states, find duplicates and merges them. I used it and went slowly, merging 5 contacts a day to check each contact before merging. The button however is unlabelled. After you click on the "Contacts" button located under the name of your phone in Kies, you will find 4 buttons on the top right corner; one of them called "view list of duplicated contacts".

You could also download a free app called Contact Analyzer 2. It does exactly what you need.

What I would do is upload the contacts to Google first, and then sync those contacts to your Galaxy S II. This guide shows you how to remove duplicate contacts and resync to your phone: http://bit.ly/sTyPUl

You can achieve it by a third party program to transfer contacts from your old phone to a new one, especially for android and iPhone users.

It's much easier to transfer information like apps, contacts, media and text messages with the help of Mobile Transfer.
Compared with Cellular companies which tend to only transfer contacts between phones, Mobile Transfer is a piece of software that will do all that for you.
It not only transfer contacts: Copy over your video, call list, photos, notes and music between all your devices with a single click.
Transfer to multiple different devices: Transfer any data you want to share between various devices such as Android, iOS and Symbian.
Contract phones are also supported: Move your data from old phones to new ones, regardless of which cell service the phones have.
