Syncing Contact from W10M to iOS?

5

I have finish switch back to iOS from Windows Mobile after 5 years of using the platform. After reading about Microsoft trying to focus the Windows Mobile platform for business there were not much for me to stay with them. I’m trying to sync all my SMS, contact and anything else that would get my iPhone 7 working with all my general information. I know there is an Andriod to iOS app and same for iOS to Andriod but don’t seem to see one for Windows Mobile to iOS.

    To transfer data between two mobile phones, you can use a mobile transfer app to help, this kind of app could transfer data between phones in different os and different types.

    For Microsoft users, you can sync with outlook, like this: http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-switch-from-windows-phone-to-iphone/

    Or you can use third-party apps or programs to do that:  http://www.mobiledic.com/android-topic/transfer-contacts-from-windows-phone-to-iphone.html

    There's a way. It just involves 3rd party software and some cables.

    If you sync'd your contacts to an account on your Windows Phone, you simply add that same account to your iPhone and tell your iPhone to sync the contacts. For example, I use the same @outlook.com account on both my Windows Phone and iPhone and my contacts, tasks, and calendars sync between both devices. I just added my @outlook.com as an Exchange account under iOS. You should be able to do similar with almost any service (Yahoo, Gmail, etc.).

    Download OneDrive to get your pictures if you used the sync capability.

    SMS is more difficult. I don't know of any way to get your SMS from Windows Phone to another device, but maybe someone else does.

    Well for contact syncing between various devices I put my contacts in the Outlook.com and Exchange Online accounts I have linked to my Windows Phone and then use the Outlook App on Android and iOS to sync them to those devices. There is a setting under Accounts in Outlook to sync your contacts to the device.
