Nokia has updated their Windows Phone 8 Transfer My Data app, which allows users to transfer contacts data from any device which supports the Bluetooth Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) to also support the transfer of Text Messages and Pictures from supporting handsets, which in the main appear to by more recent Symbian handsets.

As can be seen in the screen shot, transferring a large number of images can take a while, but when your only computer is a smartphone, as is the case in many countries, this may be the only option.

The matrix for support of the various features include:

Platform     Contacts      Text Messages     Pictures  
Windows Phone Yes Yes No1
Symbian4 Yes Yes Yes
Series 40 (Nokia)5    Yes Yes Yes
Android Yes No No2
iOS Yes No No3
BlackBerry Yes No No

1,2,3 Transfer via SkyDrive is the recommended solution.

4 Symbian devices running S60 3.2 or above.

5 Recent Series 40 devices (e.g. Asha).

The app can be found in the Windows Phone Store here or in the Nokia Collection.
