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. Commented Oct 11, 2010 at 16:40
