Four days left to sync/migrate your notes...!

Published by at

Reader Martin Jeppesen has reminded us all that if you're planning to migrate/sync years of Symbian 'Notes' then you might want to get a wriggle on. I already reported on Microsoft's intended cessation of Nokia Sync, and it's unlikely that most people reading this are relying on Nokia Sync for contacts and calendar anymore, but the existence of a migration tool that can cope with years of notes is interesting. If this is you, then read Martin's notes below and act quickly!

From Martin:

The one thing I didn't find a solution for, was the hundreds of notes, I'd been writing on Symbian phones up through time. Foolishly of me, I never switched to Evernote/OneNote while on Symbian.
And the Transfer my Data app on WP doesn't help you with notes from the built-in Notes app. 

 But now that Microsoft are terminating Nokia Sync, there actually is a solution.

Simply check the checkbox for migrating Notes, and they will migrate it to OneNote for you.  


One thing, I experienced however, is, that with the hundreds of notes, I had, the migration tool couldn't handle all of them in one migration. I had to close the browser tab and restart the migration three times. Each time you can see, that it has migrated more notes, and the third time it migrated the last of them.

The migration option closes on 5'th of December, so you have to move fast :)

Thanks Martin. OneNote may not sound that exciting, but it's available for all major platforms, so at least gives your Symbian Notes a future.
