Sync Contacts from your Nokia to iPhone without outlook

It is possible to sync your contacts to your iPhone without MS Outlook.


  1. Export your phonebook to CSV
  2. Import the same to your Gmail account
  3. Sync contacts from your Google account with iTunes.


  • In addition to Google, it is also possible to sync with Yahoo, windows address book, MS Outlook.
  • To export your phonebook you need Nokia PC suite. It doesn’t copy the SIM contacts; but the same can be imported directly in iPhone.

1. Open your iTunes, select your iPhone and click the Info tab.


2. Select “Google Contacts” in the “Sync contacts with” and it will ask for your Google Account information

3. Hit the “Sync” button to sync it with your device. You can import the remaining SIM contacts by

Settings –> Mail, Contacts, Calendars –> Import SIM Contacts

importsimcontacts-thumbobviously you should have the SIM to see the option “Import SIM Contacts”

That’s it, you are good to go now.

    Thank you.

    By the way, You're not who I think you are, are you?

  3. Please check iNoki at: It's an iPhone app which can extract and import data in .NBU file created by Nokia PC Suite. All phonebook, sms, calendar, photo, audio, videos can be imported.

    AppStore link:

  4. I can see that you've never actually exported your phonebook as CSV because the nokia desktop software won't let you do it.
