That's not really an Android question, but assuming you were asking "how can I import this VCard file correctly into my Android address book": Some adjustments might be required to the VCard file. I found a specification summary in this Github issue comment: vCard 2.1 is US-ASCII by default. Individual properties can be overridden with the CHARSET= ...

Helium has never been, nor ever will be, compatible with any device running anything less than Android 4.0 First things first: What you want cannot be achieved on not-rooted devices running a lower version of Android. Only with ICS (4.0), permissions of the ADB daemon have been alleviated to enable this (see: Full Backup of non-rooted devices). For ...

As you've already figured, a built-in solution is: Open the contacts app on the "old device" In Menu → Import/Export, chose to export Copy the resulting 0001.vcf file to your "new device" On the new device, open the contacts app and chose to "import" from Menu → Import/Export Hint: take care there's enough free space available on the "exporting" device (...

The reason I had this issue was a badly formatted vcard file. There were many BEGIN:VCARD tags that were not closed with END:CARD tags. As an example, it looked like this: BEGIN:VCARD VERSION:3.0 BEGIN:VCARD # Bunch of fields in here like N, FN, EMAIL, etc. END:VCARD As you can see, the first BEGIN:VCARD is not closed. So in a text editor, I did a Find ...

The default path for music is typically /sdcard/Music. Don't be fooled by the sdcard in the path, that's a relic of the past from a time where devices didn't feature their own external storage. For Termux to work correctly in this regard, you have to manually grant read/write permissions to your "SD card" to Termux. Do that in the Settings app under the ...

As of October 2014: See this, it offers a direct way to do just what we're looking for. Nutshell: Connect phone to computer Swipe down from top of phone to get to settings (Samsung Note 3) tap "Connected as..." and select "Camera (PTP)" to access photo folders. (Alternatively, tap "Media Device (MTP)" to access all folders) FINALLY!

Assuming something like EverSync won't work, maybe you could just use the HTM file. Either post it online (as e.g., a page in a Wordpress blog) or save it on the device (accessed via shortcut as needed). Either way, it should open in a web browser, and its links should work.

You can just connect them using a USB cable. Alternatively you can use Bluetooth (if your computer supports it), or upload the PDF files to the cloud (e.g. Google Drive), or send them via email to youself.

Thanks to @beeshyams for his comment. TL;DR Just install SMS Backup & Restore or download it from apkmirror. Copy apk to SD card. Do a backup of SMS/MMS messages (don't forget to enable MMS images/file/etc in advanced settings) and Call log to SD card. After the switch to LineageOS, install APK from SD card and import SMS/MMS messages and Call log. Done....

Finally, I did the job with User Dictionary Manager (UDM)! Find it in Play-Store. I just had to transform the json export file to plain text word-by-line file.

File copying over SSH, with scp, is quite fast, depending on your network environment, and is more reliable than adb push and MTP. In fact, copying over network is my primary choice for bunches of files.

Check if you're contacts are duplicated by logging on to google on a browser... If they are duplicated there then that means the back up screwed up... If they are not duplicated there, then, delete all your contacts on your phone then back up from google again. Hope I helped, Sid

If there's nothing inside the obb file don't bother copying, it ...

The camera may be connecting on PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) or MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) mode, not as a normal USB drive (which uses USB Mass Storage drivers). It shows up in Ubuntu similarly to a USB Mass Storage device, but Android has no support for this out of the box. You could try an app that supports PTP, such as DslrDashboard, but I haven't ...

SIM cards only support one number for each contact, so you should be better off exporting the contacts on your Micromax device as Contacts.vcf (export to SD card / something like that) and opening the VCF on your Moto G to commence import.

Several ways actually. The most simple way I found was to sync all your addresses to a Google Account. If you don't have one create one. On the S3: From Settings Scroll down and choose Accounts and Sync. Choose Add Account. Choose Google. Choose Existing to add an existing account. Type in the email id of the account. Fill in password and sign ...

The .nef file is actually a normal database, which can be opened (and exported, and edited and ...) by Microsoft Access. The only thing is that it has an unrecognizable extension. Rename the file to xxxx.mdb, and you can open it in Microsoft Access by double-clicking it. See also https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15359323/open-a-standard-jet-db-4-0-file-...
