I just got a new Windows (7.5) Phone. I exported all contacts from my old Android phone to a vcf file but have no idea how to import it to my Windows phone. Any ideas? Are there other ways to transfer contact lists from Android to Windows phones?
You might need to convert the file to a
.csv file first if you plan to upload it online, this depends from service to service. It's required for Windows Live on my first look. Try http://labs.brotherli.ch/vcfconvert/ or search an off-line variant.
In case you have Windows Live:
Go to http://live.com/ and log into your Windows Live.
On the Inbox page, click Messenger at the top and then click Contacts.
Click on Import, then on Outlook and then upload your
In case you have Gmail:
Go to http://gmail.com/ and log into your Gmail.
Click on Contacts at the top-left corner.
Click the More Actions button above the list of contacts, then click Import.
You should be able to upload a
.vcffile here, follow the instructions further.
Since you had an Android phone before, I guess you might have synced all your contacts to your gmail account. Add your gmail account to Windows phone, and set sync options to include contacts. All your contacts are automatically synced. (even without the vcf files.)
Assuming that you have set up a live account linked to the phone, can you not import the contacts from the vcf into live on a PC and then it will sync from there to the phone?
I've got 2 hotmail accounts, exchange account, facebook, twitter and linkedin all set up on the phone with all contacts syncing and linking correctly.
