    try using Motorola Migrate app and follow the prompts. Will need to add this to your old phone too maybe?
    May only work with other android phones but may work with Nokia.

    Unless I'm doing everything wrong Moto Migrate doesn't recognise the Nokia? It's a simple slide phone and about as smart as me, i.e. not! I have tried a google search to finr a way, but none show up.

    Is it possible to drag/drop the contacts from the Nokia onto my MacBook and from there to the Moto G? If I can find them on the Nokia that is?

    I'm pretty sure what you need to look for is the option to export your contacts from your old phone into a vcf file. This file can then be imported into the Moto G
    A quick search turned this up:

    Good luck

    I'd go VCF to Google Contacts, then sync that with the phone. Makes editing/cleaning up and maintaining easier IMO.

    I used the nokia suite to export the contacts as a csv file, and uploaded it to gmail, then sync'd the moto g, worked for me!

    1. Most phones have the option to send the contacts as vcf using Bluetooth.. Try that way
    2. You could Sync your Google account but I don't think that slide Nokia would have that...
    3. Move your contacts to the Sim card and then take them out in your G
    4. Try to find an app on the Nokia that makes a vcf backup of your contacts and send it to your G

    I use Google Contacts. I use my desktop computer to manage my contacts and the contacts will update to all my mobile devices automatically as long as I'm logged into my Google account.
    You should be able to export you present contacts and then import into Google Contacts.

    You could also save your contacts to the sim. Only if they do not exceed a certain number.
    Well i did it because i was using Nokia 1100

    I'm also very new to smartphones and Google etc. I have to transfer my contacts from a Nokia 6300 to my MotoG. I'd like to try your method, but where will I find Google Contacts, please?
    Thanks

    16:52 OK - don't bother. I've found it (by Googling!)

    For the record, it's in Contacts within Gmail.

    I'm getting quite impressed by the 'smartness' of smartphones! I couldn't get my Nokia to export contacts at all, so I exported my Outlook contacts to a CSV file and then uploaded to Google Contacts. When I switched on my MotoG this morning, all the contacts appeared without me doing anything. Smart.
    Now I've got to get rid of the dross which has accumulated over the years in Outlook!

    1. Theres an App in the store that creates a cvf file I think
    2. Go to your Bluetooth and press the menu bottom, pair with your android device and in the menu you should see something like "send contacts"
    And it will send all your contacts via bluetooth

    Thanks for the reply. Have done it after some 2 hours and heartache via my Google account, but haven,t a clue how I managed it. First of all tried, the download in the threads above, but had no luck then as I said before stumbled my way around Google and managed it.

    However, no methods in the guide work for Nokia 1100.

    From my experience,the simplest way to transfer contacts from Blackberry to moto g is to use "Migrate" apps.Just follow the prompts and you will go through a smooth process of transfer.

    The winning answer for me, very much pre-Migrate with my old Windows Mobile Treo 700wx, was Treo -> Google Contacts -> Sync to Android (the original Droid at that time).

    I THINK there was actually a Windows Mobile app for the first step.
