In an article a few months ago we described the guide to transfer contacts from Nokia (Symbian) to iPhone using the app Mobiletrans. Now this app can finally be used even in case you have a Nokia Lumia, device that is not based on the Symbian operating system, but on that Windows Phone.

If you want to transfer contacts from Nokia Lumia to iPhone there are two possibilities. The first is to use Mobiletrans, the second instead is to follow a somewhat long and manual procedure. Below we describe the two solutions step by step.

METHOD 1. Transfer Contacts from LUMIA to iPhone in one Click

Thanks to the program MobileTrans now you can transfer contacts, photos, videos, music from your Nokia Lumia phone to your new iPhone, in just one click. Mobiletrans supports several Lumia devices: Nokia Lumia 640, Lumia 735, Lumia 535, Lumia 435, Lumia 830, Lumia 1520, etc ...

You can download the free demo version of MobileTrans on your Windows PC or Mac OS X from the links below:


After installation you will see the following main window:

To be able to transfer your contacts, you will first need to sync them between your Nokia Lumia and OneDrive.

If by chance the contacts are not selectable, it means that you have not yet synchronized your Lumia contacts on OneDrive. In that case you will need to do the first contact synchronization of the Lumia on OneDrive by following these steps:

1) Create an account at (if you don't already have one such as, or
2) From the Lumia phone, open the People application and click on "..." and then choose "Settings".
3) In "Settings" click on "account" at the bottom and click on "add an account". Then in the new screen you have to select "Microsoft account" and log in with your account and password.
4) After a few seconds the contacts will be automatically synchronized on OneDrive.

Once this is done from the Mobiletrans click under the image of your Nokia Lumia on “I made the backup” and the program will immediately show the number of contacts that can be transferred.

Click on “START COPY” and in a few seconds the contacts will be copied from your Lumia to your new iPhone.
