    The work of transferring contacts from your N95 to iPhone is not difficult; though, it requires a little patience and sufficient time. Actually, you will save significant time by importing the contacts and mails present in your Nokia N95 directly to the iPhone. You don’t need to save them manually.

    Now, the SIM cards of any service provider can hold all the contacts, personal data, and text messages. You can save contacts to your SIM card. This is very beneficial because it’s very easy to switch the SIM card to another phone in place of importing all the contacts. However, if you want to transfer them to an iPhone, you will need to understand the appropriate way to perform this job.

    Here we discuss the method of transferring contacts from Nokia N95 to the iPhone through very simple steps.
