The Nokia N95 and Apple iPhone are both smartphones that offer a wide range of features to aid communication and deliver a simple and smooth user experience. A detailed contact list is one of the features that both offer. You can store phone numbers, addresses, e-mail addresses and much more in the address books on both handsets. If you need to switch between phones, transferring your contacts from the N95 to the iPhone is a simple and quick process that you can do in one of two ways --- either on your handsets using your SIM card or by using your PC.

    Using Your PC

  1. 1

    Connect your N95 to your PC using a USB cable. Open Nokia PC Suite and select "Synchronize." In the Nokia PC Sync window, select "Settings" and choose "Create New Settings." Follow the onscreen prompts to transfer your contacts to Microsoft Outlook, making sure you select the correct version of Outlook that you have on your PC. Once you have created your settings, be sure to start the sync process (see Reference 2).

    Connect your iPhone to your PC and open iTunes. Select you iPhone from the left-hand panel. In the iPhone window, make sure that contacts are selected to sync with your iPhone and click "Apply" on the "Summary" screen. Your iPhone will automatically import all contacts in your Outlook address book (see Reference 3).

Tips and warnings

  • Copying your contacts to your SIM card might be quicker if you have not already set up your Nokia PC Suite to export contacts, but if your contacts include more details than only phone numbers, these details might not transfer. Using you PC Suite will ensure that all information for your contacts is transferred.
