Copying contacts from T610 to 6630?

This is doing my head in.

I've just tried to copy 250+ contacts from a Sony Ericsson T610 to my Nokia 6630, by choosing "Send All" via Bluetooth.

Now, for all Bluetooth Sony Ericsson phones I've owned, this just sends the whole lot and the other phone automatically recognises and saves all the contacts.

However, with the 6630 (and I assume all other Series 60 devices) the contacts arrived as 250+ SEPARATE messages in the inbox, each with a .vcf v-card inside.

What's that all about? Does Nokia honestly expect me to fanny about saving each and every one by hand?

I know I can sync the T610 with Outlook then back to the 6630, but I have no desire to install Outlook just for this purpose.

Is there any way I can just copy all the contacts from T610 to 6630 without having to save them all manually?


For all its flexibility, Series 60 don't half have some head-against-brick-wall moments.

Init! It was doing my nut.

In the end I had to install Outlook, install the pile of shite XTND Connect software off the Sony Ericsson site, sync the T610 with Outlook, then sync from Outlook to the 6630.

Why can't Series 60 phones realise when they're being sent a batch of Vcard files and deal with them automatically like every other Sony Ericsson phone?

In your T610, move your SMS to "SIM Archive", pop your SIM card into 6630 and to go Messaging and select SIM Directory. Maybe you would like to move those SMS from your SIM card into your 6630
