Hello All,
Sorry if this has been asked before but what is the process to transfer contacts from the N900 to the N9?

I tried 'Import Contacts' via Bluetooth on the N9 but the N900 won't show up as a 'Paired device' to allow the transfer of the contacts? Note: The N900 is paired with my N9.

Many Thanks in Advance!

Bluetooth transfer works for sure - did it myself. Check if you N900 BT is in visible mode.

Unfortunately my N900 its not showing up as a paired device via the N9 'Import Contact' screen. My wife Android phone shows up and allows me to
transfer contacts from her phone.

Why not sync them to Your Nokia Account (OVI) and then set up the same account on your N9?

I generate a QR Code from a single contact on the N900 and take a picture with MeeScan on the N9 where I can add it as new contact to the N9's address book. Works perfectly, no need for bluetooth.

QR codes. Interesting.

Bluetooth syncing between 2 N900s doesn't work for me either.

On the 1st device, the 2nd one shows up in the 'select a device list', but transfer of any kind fails using the built-in sync thing.

On the 2nd device, the 1st one doesn't even show up in the list. Of course both are paired properly.

No idea what's wrong there. I ended up exporting contacts using

osso-addressbook-backup -e all.vcs
and importing that file on the other phone using

osso-addressbook-backup -i all.vcs
