We certainly hope you are enjoying your new phone and can understand wanting to make sure your contacts are not lost upon activating your new phone. As bearone21 mentioned, we would like to know how you saved your previous contacts on your Nokia Lumia? If they were saved via the Verizon Cloud, you can simply restore from your last back up on the Lumia to the S9 via the steps here https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-161979
. If they were not saved, the other option would be via Gmail if you had an account on the Nokia, or via USB on your computer by following these steps here https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-66452 Give one of those a try and keep us posted on the outcome as we are here to help.
