Nokia shows you how to make the “switch easy” to a new Lumia in new series of videos
It really is not that difficult though, and Nokia in the United Kingdom has put together a series of step-by-step videos to help you “switch easy” if you have decided to make the plunge and pick up a shiny new Lumia.
No doubt Nokia prepared these in anticipation of a favorable reception to the upcoming release of the new Lumia 930 as well as the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. So, how difficult is it to make a switch from an iPhone, Android device, BlackBerry, older Symbian powered Nokia, or even an older Windows Phone device?
Turns out it is not that hard at all. If you do not consider yourself technically proficient, then these videos will be very helpful. If you are a gadget geek, we can tell you right now these videos are probably not for you (unless you consider yourself “always teachable”).
These videos are each a little over four minutes long, and the majority of each segment covers common set-up steps which are the same across the board. That means the important step-by-step parts are only a few minutes. Despite this overlap however, Nokia has dedicated a segment for each platform solely to help you make the switch from whatever you have to your new Lumia.

Symbian to Windows Phone is not an upgrade. Its a downgrade. I switched from Symbian to Windows Phone, and WP is soo empty.

Don't kid me bro. I know you love WP but you're just afraid to admit it. Its OK.

just cause you love something doesn't mean you have to be completely oblivious and blind towards it

WP has a much much larger apps/games library than symbian ever did, its a dead OS, slow, not so great for touch screens but better for feature phones and cheap models, I really dont get it what so empty in WP when compared to symbian, now if you said its empty compared to android then I would understand you.

I stand by this. My dad made a switch from galaxy y to moto g using that migrate app. Absolutely painless.

Hmmm android to android. I hope it was painless. If it wasn't android has problems.

And how is that in a word of Samsung domination? htc/sony make beautiful quality phones like nokia does and they cant even hit 8% of marketshare. You people dont realise how hard it is to make it in the world of android. At least nokia has no competition in WP8 and with MS behind it it can only do better.

hat's the thing, no one really wants wp, (masses)they want android, and they would like an option to Samsung.. Hence Nokia.
Whom, wouldn't even need to advertise really, we all know who they are already and what they can produce.

Just like HTC Sony, Nokia had symbian which by the time of the droid had a 1% market share. It was to late.
Right now nokia will have a tuff time against Samsung, just ask the others. Right now the US and only the 'older' crowd knows of the nokia, and they do not know nokia for their awesome smartphones.
It would be an uphill battle to establish themselves, and marketing money they do not have to slam against samsung or apple without outside help like ohhhhhh MS

tbh the 8% that htc/sony/lg make are still alot more then nokia makes

If you didn't try the windows phone os, don't judge it...if you tried the os then you're free to judge otherwise you're just haters.

Switched to a Lumia 520 from my HTC One V last year. Haven't looked back since. Now loving WP more than ever on my L1520. :D

Use S4 & Lumia 720. Like them both. Use the Windows for all my banking and credit card transactions. Dont trust Android security for some reason. Will wait a year or two before completely switching over to WP. Always love Nokia Phones.
