Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300, 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. I have a Nokia phone with .vcf Files of Contacts to be transferred to the Galaxy S3. My contacts are more than 4000 in quantity which I want to transfer along with their pictures and each & every detail without any loss. Any Reliable Suggestion / App that can do this?
If I remember correctly, Android natively reads VCF files for import
Just put your
.vcf file in any folder in the sdcard. Then open your Contacts app. Look for the 3 grey dots on the upper right of the screen and press it. Select Import from the list. Next, select Import from external memory.
Wait for a while for it to finish. Close the app after importing your contacts and open it again to refresh the data. You should start seeing all of your contacts after that. Unfortunately VCF file can only contain information, no pictures, it is still stored on your nokia's memory
Have you tried this app here:ContactSync
I'm using it to sync my vcards to my new galaxy and it worked fine.
There's many cases where the native (Google or Samsung Contacts) VCF importer fails for android, because they have two bugs (one bug causes only a partial import, and one bug fails outright for older VCF formats).
I suggest this free alternative called ContactsManager by hubin, I found it after trying over a dozen options. It was able to import an old VCF with over 1,400 contacts in it in the first try. It is 100% free. I am in no way related to the app or the apps developer.
