Transfer content using your Microsoft account
If your old phone is a Windows Phone, the easiest way to transfer your contacts, calendar, and
text messages to your new Lumia phone is your Microsoft account.
If you don't have a Microsoft account set up on your new Lumia phone yet, on the start screen,
swipe down from the top of the screen, tap ALL SETTINGS > email+accounts > add an
account, and create a Microsoft account following the instructions shown on the screen.
