We’ll help you to transfer your contacts from your old phone to your new Xperia™ smartphone. And if you use Xperia™ Transfer, we’ll also help you to copy photos, bookmarks, messages and more.
Get it right from the start
Changing to a new smartphone can be a hassle. You may have information saved on your phone memory, SIM card, memory card, and perhaps even have files on a computer. So, now is the time to get it right, once and for all.
Use Xperia™ Transfer to move your contacts, messages, music, photos, videos and more onto your new Xperia™ smartphone.
It’s a good idea to save your contacts online, for example to a Google™ account. This means that they are safely backed up and accessible from any device. The next time you need to change devices you can simply log in to your online account and your contacts will be available on your smartphone.
Can I use my SIM card to transfer contacts?
We recommend that you do not import or export contacts using a SIM card. If you use the SIM card to store and transfer contacts, there is a high risk that you will lose your information. Your SIM card may not have enough space on it to save all contacts, and some SIM cards can only save one phone number for each contact.
Other methods available
If you want to transfer contacts directly between two devices, you can send them using Bluetooth™ technology, or you can copy contacts to your old phone’s memory card and insert the card into your new smartphone. Please check the user guide for your old phone and the new device for further assistance.
