How to export contacts from Nokia 5800 to PC and import to iPhone4

Hi experts,

The iPhone4 has a mini SIM and my old Nokia 5800 touchscreen phone has a large SIM. Furthermore they are on two different networks that won't accept each others SIMs when put in the other phone. How can I get all my contacts from the Nokia and get them on my iPhone4. I have Nokia Ovi suite on my PC and have sync'd all the contacts to PC but there's no export feature. Doing it manually would be awful as I have around 200 contacts and i'm an impatient guy! Please help :-)

Thanks in advance

Can you sync the Nokia with a gmail account or other mail program like Outlook?  If so I'd suggest doing that, then pointing iTunes at that contact source.

All sorted and along the lines of how you said, bouscal - thank you.

1. Opened up Ovi Suite and in 'Tools > Options > Contacts
2. Under 'Sync with contacts application' I checked the radio button 'Windows Contacts' (in Vista)
3. I plugged in my Nokia via USB and sync'd my contacts.
4. I opened up Windows Contacts and saw all my contacts there.
5. I opened up iTunes, plugged in my iPhone via USB, then cilcked the 'Info' tab
6. I then ticked the box 'Sync Contacts with...' and on the rolldown selected 'Windows Contacts'
7. Under 'Advanced' at the bottom under 'Replace information on this iPhone' I clicked 'Contacts'
8. Clicked Apply and Sync
9. Voila!!!

hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.
