Transfer My Data hands-on for Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8
Transfer My Data is an app for Nokia Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8, so the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820, which allow you to copy over any contacts you have on an old phone Bluetooth.
Transfer My Data is a quick and easy app to use that is exclusive to the Nokia Collection that makes it easy to switch content from your old phone to your new Nokia Lumia.
If you’re moving from an older Windows Phone to the new Windows Phone 8 you won’t need this app as your data will essentially move with you, as long as you’ve backed it all up to your Live account.
It’s safe to admit that Transfer My Data over sells what it can actually do, as it won’t move all your data, just your Contacts. It does this using Bluetooth, so as long as your old phone has the wireless technology on-board you’re good to go.
Transfer My Data is aimed at those moving from other smartphone platforms, or even switching to a smartphone for the first time. Simply make sure you have Bluetooth switched on on your old phone and that it can easily be detected and paired.
Transfer My Data will then pull up the details of the Contacts list on your old phone and ask you if you want to proceed. Hit Start and they will be moved over. The process is quick and easy and once copied you’ll find your People Hub has been populated.
Transfer My Data is pretty much one of those apps you’ll use once and then simply forget about. If you’re an advanced user you probably won’t even need it at all. However, first time smartphone users will be glad that something like this actually exists and can be found on the Nokia Lumia running Windows Phone 8.
