[tutorial] Import contacts with Nokia Ovi on almost any Nokia phone


Freaking stupid people work at Nokia.
I tried for an hour to import contacts into Nokia C2-01 with Nokia Ovi's latest version.
I tried to import from CSV and VDF from inside the phone's memory, after I copied the files from PC. Both file types are not supported!
The only wait to import is from a CSV file, because a VDF file only imports the first contact.

What you have to do:

  1. Install Nokia Ovi
  2. Connect Nokia C2-01 to PC
  3. Open Microsoft Outlook (I used 2007)
  4. Go to Contacts, bottom left
  5. Go to File
  6. Choose Import and Export...
  7. Select Import from another program or file
  8. Next
  9. Select Comma Separated Values (Windows)
  10. Next
  11. Next
  12. Choose Contacts
  13. Finish
  14. Wait to finish importing
  15. Close Microsoft Outlook
  16. Go to Nokia Ovi
  17. Tools
  18. Options
  19. Contacts
  20. Under Sync with contacts application select Microsoft Outlook
  21. Press OK
  22. Press Sync Contacts
  23. Organize your contacts and groups
  24. Go back to Tools - Options - Contacts and select Do not sync
  25. DONE, FINALLY!

Stupid Nokia, you make me look bad!
