Synching Nokia phone contacts to other smartphone (Sony, iPhone)

It’s quite simple actually, the key point is: using Google Contacts (quite weird that this contact isn’t listed in Google Products).

  • First step is that you should download Nokia/Ovi Suite
  • Sync your Nokia phone contacts via Nokia/Ovi Suite
  • Select all of your contacts (Ctrl+A or Edit  –> Select All)

Select all contacts in Nokia Suite

  • Export your contacts to your PC (File –> Export contacts). Select target folder where you will save the exported contacts to. You’ll have a lot of .vcf files there. We need to combine all of this files into a single .vcf file (so, we can import all of Nokia phone contacts to Google Contacts in one go)

Exported contacts from Nokia Suite

  •  Open a command prompt and navigate to the previously selected folder. If you are using Windows 8, you can do this easily, see screenshot

  • after the command prompt opened, type this command

  • Now, open your Google Contacts.
  • Choose import contacts from your Google Contact. Choose that previously produced all_contact.vcf.

  • Now, make sure there’s no duplicate contacts (especially when you often do this synchronizing things)

You’re done preparing, now, we can easily synchronizing with smartphone from other manufacturers

 

Synching with Sony Xperia Go via PC companion

  • If your Android already setup for auto-synching with your Google Accounts, there’s no need to do this step but I prefer to do this just to make sure it’s working properly.
  • Choose Sync Zone from your Sony PC Companion

 

  • After that, you’ll be asked about your Google Accounts where you can sync the contacts

 

Synchronizing with iPhone

  • Well, not much to say here, just connect your iPhone to your PC, open iTunes (if it’s not open automatically). It should be synching automatically (if you are already set-up a Google account for your iPhone). If not, click that iPhone button.

  • You’re ready to sync

TREQ A10C review

TREQ A10C is a low-end Android made-in-China tablet. I bought this tablet because although it’s low-end, it runs on Android ICS 4.0.3 (and my kids want Angry Birds Space  and Plants vs Zombie in this device 😛 ). The price is also affordable, IDR1,350,000.00 (about USD150) for the 16GB version.
Some basic system info (taken using Quadrant standard):

Pros:
– cheap
– run Android ICS 4.0.3
– 1GHz single core processor (tweakable up to 1.5GHz) with 1GB RAM
– able to play MKV video (tested on 720p quality), subtitle is flawlessly shown.
– able to read external hard-disk (tested on my Toshiba 500GB), be aware though, Android will only read your first hard-disk partition
– already rooted
– Google Play/Market, Adobe Flash 11, HD games run smoothly
– HDMI output (cable is not included)
– 5 points multi-touch

Cons:
– no GPS
– no compass
– no built-in modem
– no bluetooth
– no camera (well, there is a front VGA camera, it sucks)

Although this tablet hasn’t any internal modem (WiFi only), it does support some USB modem (GSM and CDMA):
