When switching to a new Windows Phone 8 device, you may want to import contacts to the device.
To import contacts to your new Windows Phone 8 device, follow these steps depending on where your contacts are stored:
If your contacts are stored in the cloud as part of an online service such as Outlook.com, Google, Microsoft Office 365, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn; set up that account on the new phone and your contacts will be imported automatically. See device How Tos for setting up an email account.
If your contacts are part of an online service that isn't fully compatible with Windows Phone, you must first set up a Microsoft account. Then, transfer your contacts to the Microsoft account using the following steps:
Note: To sync contacts from Microsoft Exchange (typically the case if you use Outlook at work), see your device How Tos for setting up an Exchange account.
To sync contacts from Outlook without Exchange (typically the case if you use Outlook at home), you must add your Microsoft account to Outlook, then transfer your contacts from Outlook to the Microsoft account. Please see Microsoft support to Sync contacts and calendars from Outlook on my PC to my phone.
