When exporting or emailing a VCF file from the Contacts app, the Group data (e.g. Family, Friends) does not get exported. Similarly, the CATEGORIES property is ignored when importing a VCF file. Does anyone know how to get this data into/out of the Contacts app via VCF? Thanks!

You are doing this on the web inside of gmail, right?

I didn't see the groups included in the VCF file either. But they do seem to be included if you export it as a CSV. Is it possible that you can use the CSV instead?

No, this is within the phone contact manager itself. My contacts do not sync with my Google contacts. Not sure why, and I'm not sure I want them too, anyway. – Joe Casadonte Oct 11 '10 at 16:40
