I exported all of my contacts from my Android device to a VCF file but I don't see how I can import this on my Windows Phone 7.8 device.

The file is 251KB but appears empty in notepad and GMail doesn't accept the file. Is there a place where I can import this on my phone to transfer all of my contacts?

Does Gmail give an error? Do you still have your Android Phone and is your current phone a Nokia?… Are your contacts synced to your Gmail? – row1 Feb 26 '13 at 13:00
If it appears empty in notepad there is something wrong with you export procedure. VCF files are simple text files, they are perfectly viewable on notepad. – Vitor Canova Feb 27 '13 at 2:18
