How to transfer contacts to Samsung SPH A900 cell phone?

February 14th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

I recently brought a new SPH A900 and was looking around for a way to transfer all the contacts from my old cell phone. Lot of websites offered help in transferring contacts one at a time, but transferring 300 plus contacts, one at a time was a nightmare.

Recently I figured how to transfer contacts in bulk. Here are the steps.


  1. Transfer contacts from your old cell phone to Microsoft Office Outlook. My old Sony Ericsson had a feature to sync with Outlook, so it was easy to transfer contacts to outlook. Outlook also offers many ways to import contacts, just in case your phone doesn’t have a sync feature.
  2. Purchase KENSINGTON 33348 Bluetooth USB 2.0 Adapter and install the software that comes with it.
    (Note: All Bluetooth adapters will not allow bulk transfer. I tested the same with TRENDNET Bluetooth adapter and it did not allow bulk transfer.)
  3. Follow the instructions and pair your phone (SPH-A900) with the Bluetooth adapter plugged into your laptop or desktop.
  4. Now open Microsoft Office Outlook, go to contacts and select all the contacts you want to transfer to your phone.
  5. Go to menu File and you will see an option to “Send To Bluetooth”. Select your phone and all your contacts would be transferred as vcard. Make sure you accept the data on the phone.

Hope it helps.

    This is great info. Your technique almost works for me. The problem is that my phone prompts for acceptance of every contact, and Outlook times out and moves on to the next contact each time. Do you have a suggestion for getting the phone NOT to prompt for acceptance of each contact? Thanks.

    It worked for me too, the prb mentioned by Gene Baker was solved when i authorised the Connection of my computer in settings of my mobile
