    Default transferring contacts from android to lumia?

    recently i got lumia 1320..but i am having problem with my contacts list...not all my contact names are showing the numbers in lumia as they were in my android....

    from my android i exported contacts to gmail...then in gmail i went through the following steps:

    gmail>>contacts>>more>>export (selected all contacts & outlook csv format)...

    after that a excel-esque file was downloaded which i imported at my outlook account...in my lumia the outlook account synced with the mobile....but some contacts are just showing their names, not numbers and other details...


    SO ANY BETTER SOLUTION?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Method 1:

    1. Enable bluetooth on your android phone.
    2. Install "Transfer My Data" app in your lumia.
    3. Turn on your Lumia Bluetooth.
    4. Run the app.
    5. Done.

    Method 2:

    1. Select the contact from your gmail.
    2. Export all contact to .csv format and save it your pc.
    3. Create a Microsoft/Outlook account.
    4. Just like gmail, go to your MS account.
    5. Import the contacts .csv file from your pc that you saved earlier.
    6. Now enable wifi/data connection on your lumia.
    7. Go to settings>account and email> Sync your Microsoft/Outlook account.
    8. Done!

    Tried the method 2. The problem with it is that some contact names are copied but not the details (like phone number, address, etc.).

    Then try 1. Mine worked fine though. Hope @CvP might have some other ideas.

    That means those numbers/other details were not saved in gmail and didn't export.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
