  1. Import/Export Contacts


    Hi,

    Basically, I want to manually sync contacts back and forth, between my computer and my phone.

    Going from computer to phone, the easiest way for me has been exporting/backing up the computer's .vcf file, moving it to my phone, delete my phones current contact list, and then importing the .vcf file from the computer, which instantly results in an complete, updated list.

    However, going in the other direction is my problem.

    If I try to do the same in reverse, trying to import the .vcf file into the computer contacts, it wants to do it one contact at a time, instead of the full list all at once.

    I suppose they can be Imported/Exported thru gmail, but I would prefer doing it directly...phone contacts only, without importing gmail contacts

    Thanks

    :)

    This is just poor - have moved to android - synchs up with google contacts and you CAN import/export. Microsoft have done this on purpose and its backfiring.
