Ive just been thrown an HTC phone (WM) and an iPhone and asked to transfer the contacts from the HTC to the iPhone.

Is there a straight forward way of doing this ?

Can you not just copy to SIM then move the SIM over?

Sync the contacts over to Outlook and then sync the contacts back onto the iPhone?

kiwitrc: Nope, contacts on the HTC are held on the phone and dosent appear to be any way to force them onto the SIM.... it was my first plan of attack :)

adresdendoll: Yeah, thats what Im going to do, via IR though as the owner of the phone neglected to bring me his cables etc :)

I suggest confirming if the user is already sync'ing the HTC with a server for email, contacts, calendar, etc (such as Exchange or Gmail) upfront. That would make the task easier... and if not, try as natedog suggests and setup sync with Gmail.
