Moving from Windows 10 Mobile to Android – Tip 1 – Contacts


The need for a new phone, the lack of Windows 10 Mobile hardware on any carriers, and the need to switch carriers saw me waving goodbye to Windows 10 Mobile yesterday.

And so, I found myself in the position of needing to move my data from Microsoft services to Android / Google.

I started with my contacts and found that importing from Outlook.com to Google was straightforward enough.

First log into Gmail and then switch to Contacts using the drop down menu.

Click the More drop down menu and then click Import.

Click on Outlook.com to import contacts from other accounts.

Click I Agree, Let’s go!

Sign in to your Microsoft account.

The starting import dialogue will appear.

Give your Google account permission to access your Outlook.com data. Click Yes.

Wait for the process to complete.

If it doesn’t happen straight away you can open your Contacts app on your Android phone, tap the menu (three vertical dots) and then tap Sync now.
