I recently lost my good-old Nokia 6100 mobile phone. Luckily, my provider KPN gave me a new one for free, a Nokia 5500 Sport. After a few weeks I found my old phone and was very happy that I had my 150+ contacts back 🙂
The Nokia PC Suite software made it look like I could simply copy all the contacts, but unfortunately the Contact List for the 6100 model in my Nokia Phone Browser always shows up empty 🙁
However, I was able to make a Full Backup using the application. That yielded a .nbu file, which upon inspection held the contact details in VCARD format, but smeared together with lots of binary poop.
I created a webpage that will parse an .nbu file, and give back a zipped VCARD file containing all your contacts. You can then simply drag this into the Contact List of your new phone.
I have used this to export 219 contacts from my Nokia 5500 to an HTC Hero.
You need to install vCardIO, then simply copy the contacts.vcf into the root of the SD card and import all of them.
TODO: I need to add a X-IRMC-LUID property to avoid multiple additions…
