    I'm just wondering if my contacts from the Galaxy S2 Android phone will transfer over on the SD card on this Windows 8 phone, or I'll end up manually entering them again.

    If you have a Gmail account you can export them .csv to your 8/8.1 PC People/Contacts. They would be synced/shared with the phablet that way, correct?

    I'll find out. Hopefully so.

    I haven't done it in a while, but I know one could export/download it from a Gmail account. I placed them in an Excel.csv file. We should be able to import them.

    Hi there
    if you download KIES (Samsung application for its phones on Windows) you can run the Backup application which backs your entire phone up (internal memory / apps / email etc) -- not the external SD card if you've fitted one -- that you can backup via windows explorer. Then presumably you can restore the data from your external SD card to the windows phone (data only as the applications are .apk files for android).

    I use a Samsung S4 and am always messing about with custom ROM's etc - so it's useful to be able to backup and restore phone apps and data.

    The UK link works for the European versions GT 19505 / LTE (Snapdragon processor) -- you might need the US links for the US models.

    If not, then I need to update them all anyways.

    Thanks for that info, Jim.

    Shawn, have you received any info on a shipping date? I'm thinking it will arrive during the week of the 25th? Hopefully before Thanksgiving day.

    Ok Guys and Gals.. I've just ordered my RED Nokia 1520 pkg.. like HGypsie ordered, NO Contract.. from the Microsoft Web Store.
    I received the White back cover.. Free sims card, free shipping and $50 dollar shopping card.

    When it arrives , I plan to take it to the ATT Store, get my plan set up, not sure exactly what I'll choose yet with the NO Contract. .... any suggestions will be welcomed.

    I now have a contract , that expired way back with ATT( after the 2 year contract ended )..... this will goooooooo away for good.

    OH dear.. I failed to ask when I could expect it to arrive.

    Coming Soon: Emulators for Windows Phone 8 Update 3

    Hmm, I sure would like to be able to run that in a VM in a Windows 8.1 desktop.
