Best Way to transfer contacts from Nokia N97 mini to HTC Desire HD

I did a quick search could not find anything so sorry if asking something that has been asked before.

What is the best way to move my contacts from Nokia N97 mini to HTC Desire HD?
I could blue tooth them over but takes a while - I have about 400 contacts
Is there an easier way?

Do you have both phones? Both use MicroSD cards?

On your Nokia, backup your contacts to memory card.
Then put the memory card in the Desire HD and turn on phone.
Go to People, press Menu button and select Import/Export and Import from SD Card.

I found the bluetooth option the best I moved all my info (old txt msg, contacts, calender and other stuff) from my N96 to Desire HD that way, only takes about 2-3 min to setup and then it copy's everything over, for my 150 contacts think it was less than 10 min

I found the best way was to get PC Suite (not the Ovi Suite as doesn't work) and connect the Nokia, back up contacts and export as a csv file then import that file to Google contacts via gmail.
Think it works best if you have these in Google before turning on the phone 1st time, seen it on here somewhere.

Got it done thanks - quick question what is the best way to move my photos/vids?

Also when I try to do a blue tooth it say it is coming in but needs to be accepted- I don't seem to have an option to accept anywhere?

have to pull down the task bar on the top, scroll it down , has all the little icons up on top which expand when you drag it down. When I got the phone first it took me a while to figure this out!

For photos and vids best way is to transfer to computer and then transfer from computer to your device!
