Back up messages and transfer E72 Contacts to Android on a Mac

Hi to all Apple Mac folks who are like me – having troubles and issues trying to transfer their contacts/phonebook from their Nokia E72 to their new android phone. I’ll just make this brief and direct.

My old phone: Nokia E72 and my new phone: Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I’m using a Macintosh OS. This works on a PC too, but I believe Android is soooo much easier on a PC. I think Apple makes it hard for Android users to sync with a Mac so you can stick with all their products.

  1. Download the app, Youlu at the OviStore and then run it.
  2. Turn on your WiFi or your cell data, and on the settings tab, click “Sync with”. They would ask you to register your cell number and create a password.
  3. On sync, you can either choose contacts, calendar, or both on syncing it with your web account.
  4. If you want to transfer your messages, click Backup/Restore SMS. They would also sync all your messages on your web account.
  5. Now, log on to and login with your number and password. Youlu will open a page where you can see all your contacts and messages. Click on the little tool icon and then you can now export the contacts as a .CSV file.
  6. Import the .CSV file of your contacts on your hotmail/gmail account.
  7. On your android phone, sync your contacts with your hotmail/gmail account and you’re good to go!

I haven’t tried exporting my messages from Youlu so I am not sure if I could transfer it on my Android too. If you try it, and it works, tell us! You can also download youlu on your android phone from the PlayStore and I think you could actually sync from the app. I am not sure though. :p

Hope this helps you guys! Feel free to comment, suggest or ask at the comment box. 🙂
