How to transfer contacts from Windows Phone to Android without PC by PhoneSwappr


Hello everyone, recently I purchased A new Android Phone for Myself – Xiaomi Redmi 1S , and i wanted to transfer contacts from my existing Nokia Lumia 520 to my new Android Phone but the Windows Phone simply didn’t allow to transfer contacts using bluetooth :( Also the methods available on net were either too bulky or they required PC access :( . Hence, i started looking around for some alternatives to transfer contacts from windows phone to android and found this one as the best and most reliable – PhoneSwappr App! All i did was installing the app on my Windows Phone and Android and the rest was easy! because of the Simple User Interface.

Features of PhoneSwappr

  • Supports transfer of Contacts from Windows Phone to Android/iPhone as well as vice versa .
  • Stores the Contacts from your device on the Cloud for 7 days, providing you enough time to store the contacts.
  • All the contacts are encrypted with a security key which is only given to you.
  • The App can be installed on Multiple devices thus, allowing download of contacts to multiple devices where a large number of contacts need to be shared between two or more phones.
  • No need of any registration/Account Sign-Up! :P :D


  • First of All download and install the appropriate PhoneSwappr version on your Phones, depending upon their OS.
    Click here to Download PhoneSwappr for Windows Phone.
    Click here to Download PhoneSwappr for Android.
  • Now, First of all Install the application on both the phones :) , After you install it Open the App on your Old Phone/ Phone from which contacts have to be retrieved , You’ll see a Screen like this –
  • Here select the Option “Send Contacts to Cloud”  All your contacts will start getting uploaded to the Cloud, and once all the contacts are uploaded you will be shown an image with the key/pin as shown below. (Please Note down this Pin as we will use it later to retrieve our contacts ).
  • Now  open the PhoneSwappr app on your New phone and select the option “Get contacts from the Cloud”. Here’ s please enter the Pin which we have noted down earlier to start the contacts download! . It will start downloading contacts as shown below – and once it gets downloaded you will be presented with a completion screen as shown below –

That’s it! :) You have now transferred contacts among your devices in quick-time with total ease that too for FREE! I hope you liked this article and it helped you out of trouble :)

    does not move over all the contacts

    1. Chaitanya February 25, 2015

      Hello Peter, it did move all the contacts present in the “Phone” memory, however contacts which came from cloud or facebook need to be re-synced again in rare cases. Thanks!

    Hi I have downloaded PhoneSwappr App on both my devices Nokia 525 and Mi4I I have got the contact but while saving the contact it is asking me to making 47.7 payment. Could some body help on this.

    1. A.Antony Joseph August 13, 2016

      Dyes.For me also l had to pay the said amount.ls it ok?

  20. Gene February 8, 2016

    Hi Sundaram, I too came across same msg to pay 47.7. Do let me know if you found anyother alternative to copy contacts

  21. RORY O CONNOR DUBLIN February 11, 2016

    Useless. Transferred nothing to my Andriod phone-gave me 1434 unknown contacts with no numbers attached

  22. David February 11, 2016

    The transfer is no longer free. Per contact it seems a a small amount R11.30 in South Africa but when you add that up for a couple of hundred contacts it becomes exorbitant. I think this spells the death of this app.

  23. Dheeraj February 24, 2016

    The app asks for a payment of 50 rs

  24. Ranjana May 17, 2016

    hi its chargeable

  25. Nipun June 9, 2016

    I used this app but it didn’t move all my contacts on Xiaomi MIUI 7. The only method which worked for me was to download contacts from outlook.com in CSV file, convert it to VCF and then paste it to my phone and import from it. This way it worked. Heres a detailed guide how to do it: http://goo.gl/Mk5P31

  26. Rajeeb das October 31, 2016

    The App is goo but just before copying all the contacts to the new phone it is asking to pay Rs 47. This is just surprising.

    Phone Swappr is no more available as free app in windows store:

    Here is the BEST SOLUTION: How to transfer contacts from window’s phone to Android without internet.

    Step1: In your window’s phone install the app “contacts+message backup” from window’s store.
    The ‘contacts+message backup’ app when installed does not show up in the list of installed apps. It instead adds an entry to the settings app called ‘contacts+message backup‘ which can be used to back-up the contents. Here’s how to backup, step by step.

    Step2: When installed, go to Settings and scroll to the end of the list and select contacts+message backup.

    Step3: Tap on agree to accept the license terms.

    Step4: Tap on backup, select the items to backup viz contacts, SMS and MMS and finally tap on backup again to start the backup process. Make sure you have memory card in the phone where contact back up will be stored.

    Step5: Once the back-up is over, remove the SD card and insert it in your Android device.

    Step6: In your Android device, go to contacts setting, then go to Import/export. Select Import from SD card option, then select the option where you want to save the contacts viz. phone memory or Google account or other cloud account. Your contact transfer is done:…. 
