Moving from Android to Windows Phone

Moving from Android to Windows Phone

Welcome to your Windows Phone! We've put this info together to help make the switch from your Android to your Windows Phone as quick and easy as possible. Read on to learn how to get your stuff moved over and your accounts set up.

If your new phone is a Nokia, there are a couple of apps that can help you make the switch: Transfer my Data uses Bluetooth to copy your contacts, and Welcome Home to Windows Phone can transfer contacts, photos and more.

Note

Wondering where your people went? Google's contact fields are a little different from the ones you'll find on your Windows Phone, so if you've entered someone's phone number into a custom field, that contact won't show up in the People Hub contact list by default. To unhide these contacts, go to People in the App list, tap Showing contacts with phone numbers and turn off Off toggle Hide contacts without phone numbers. Learn more about using the People Hub.
