    Maybe your FB contacts are not sharing their emails?

    Default Re: Contacts Transfer

    I followed the instructions on how to set up a cardDAV account from the google website . Everything went fine, except when I try to create a new contact. I have 281 contacts on my iCloud account, and when i switch to google it say i have 290. When i check mark both accounts i have 298.
    So my first question is, when I set up carddav, why do i have extra contacts on Google if carDAV works smoothly with iOS?

    If I modify anything in iCloud, it gets sync'd to google. However if I try to add a new contact in Apple Contacts it doesn't show up in google anymore; the reverse is also true.
    With my old contacts i see on each entry an iCloud and cardDAV (Linked Contacts). On new entries there is no such link.

    In my Apple Contacts preferences, I left the default account as iCloud. If I change it to google per the instructions, then new contacts are added to google, but not added to Apple Contacts.

    This new cardDAV approach seems very close, but not exactly what I need. Gmail is my primary email, but Apple Contacts is my primary address book. My devices are all Apple: Macbook, iPad and iPhone 5. iCloud works perfectly between the devices. I want to add google as a "device" to this arrangement, because I got a Nexus 4 that Im trying out, and want to sync back and forth between the two device. Is there any way to accomplish what I am trying to do?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    I have a Mac, too, but you don't need your Mac or PC. Export the contacts file with your Lumia, attach it as an email and send it to whatever account you set up for your Nexus 4, save the file on your Nexus 4, open People.app, touch the Menu dots, choose Import/Export, Import from Storage and locate the file.

    One thing that surprised me is how much better my BlackBerry was and is at contacts integration and inter-app usability, its one of the very few things I miss about BB.



    SIDENOTE: Any recommendations for a contacts manager that doesn't allow the developer access to all of my contacts? I don't mind paying, Permissions don't bother me if I know the app isn't forwarding anything to the developer's or third party servers.

    Okay. I'll try that. I've been very busy lately.

    Also to everyone else, thank you too!! I appreciate it.

    Okay, I have so many contacts that I don't want to go one by one. Any FAST and FREE methods?

    I used this method to transfer my contacts en masse, not one by one, that would be nearly fruitless. There's no way to export all your contacts using the Lumia contacts manager app?

    for business it is a must, but I understand it's not cheap. The crazy part is that I never have to plug in my phone. Everything updates wirelessly. Contacts, notes, tasks, calendar events. It's a super handy program.

    Well if a Dev on android could make an app that imports contacts via Bluetooth like Nokia's Transfer my Data, then I'm all ears.

    Did you search the Play Store? I ran into but you might want to try to search yourself. My old htc Sensation had a nifty Transfer.app that worked for contacts, sms/mms and media.

    Yes, it possible to transfer contacts through Bluetooth from Nokia to Nexus4.

    You have to mark all contacts, select "send business card" and send Bluetooth mode to transfer it. its very well worked for me.

    In nexus select the contacts and import it.

    @OP: Try the app called Listables. This allows you to export all the contacts in the desired format (VCard, CSV, html etc.). It allows the user to simply send that file as an email (or) upload to dropbox etc.
    on your Lumia, you can simply import the file and everything should be restored easily!

    I am not aware of any direct sync applications though.

    hope this helps!

    MyPhoneExplorer is free and a mature app. Does a lot more as well.
