I have been trying to figure how to switch my contacts over to my Galaxy S6.. I had a Nokia Lumia 520 and I really don't want to manually put my contacts in, but I don't see where they were saved.

Undoubtedly, to switch files between two phones with different operating systems is more difficult than that between devices with the same system. Due to the attraction of Galaxy S6 edge/S6 edge+, many people turn to be a Samsung fan. If you were the one of them, you would ask the same question like the questioner above. You may think vCard file would work for it. Yes, you are right, but you need to export the contacts as vCard file from your Lumia 520/535/640/930 to PC and import it to the Android phone, so it is a little complicated. In this case, another convenient method is practical.

That is Mobile Transfer which is also named Phone Transfer, supporting to exchange data from most Lumia phones, including Lumia 950 running windows 10. Thus, the contacts can be moved easily between Windows phone and Android device, as well as photos, videos, etc. As for contacts, you can transfer not only the name and the number, but also the e-mail, address and more details which you have inputed on your Lumia phone.

Do not hesitate and install it to try!
