    Now we're at the home screen and we want to transfer data
    .
    So you have an old phone, or you want to transfer your contacts, or you have a friend who wants to share something with you, we can transfer data. To do that we're going to find the "Transfer my Data" tile which shown in the top left corner of my screen. It may be in a different place on your home screen. Press the "Transfer my Data" tile.

    Then it takes you to this screen
    .
    This allows you to import contacts from an old phone via Bluetooth. So you need to turn Bluetooth on this phone and the other device. Tap Continue.

    Bluetooth should be on and it's going to search for your device
    .
    We have one device here called "ORB."

  6. 6
    We also have an "advanced" menu
    .
    You can click on the "advanced" tile, but we don't need this right now. So we have the advanced menu and we have the other Bluetooth device listed here. I'm not going to connect to it because it's not totally necessary, but you have an idea of what you need to do. You're going to click on the other listed Bluetooth device and then it's going to come up with a list of data that you need to sync with and copy. You're going to have the option to copy anything. You can copy data, contacts, pictures, but videos will take a long time. Once you've done this, it will come up with a box telling you how long it's going to take. It will ask you to wait as it transfers the data.

Questions and Answers

My phones are paired but I don't know how to proceed from here to transfer my texts etc?

I'm trying to transfer my texts and other data from a Galaxy S3 mini to 535 Lumia. I have tried: I've paired the devices by Bluetooth

You can watch how to do that in our tutorial on how to send photos to Lumia 535 using Bluetooth. To send SMS messages, open the Messages application. Either tap and hold a chat or open the chat and press the menu key on the Android phone. Then, choose to share the chat via Bluetooth.
