Split VCF contact: export contact to ‘old’ mobile phone
You need to split VCF contact data first so it can be used on Samsung C3322 mobile phone.
I have Samsung Galaxy Wonder and Samsung C3322 Duos. The Wonder have using Android OS but the C3322 Duos is old type mobile phone that use operating system yet. This time I want to use the C3322 Duos for common communications (voice and SMS) and using Galaxy Wonder just for internet and data purposes.
The main problem is how to move the contact data?
If both are already using Android, then there is no problem. Synchronization on both phone and the content will be the same on both in short time.
First scenario, using another SIM Card.
I found problem because the contact data that I move have more than SIM card capacity.
Second scenario, using VCF contact data from Galaxy Wonder.
From Galaxy Wonder Contact, you can find Export/Import menu in the Option. After getting 1 vcf contact data, move to the C3322 via data cable. Open the file and you get message “VCF file not supported“. I try another option like share contact through Bluetooth connection, but do not get results as expected.
Third scenario, using VCF contact data from Galaxy Wonder or Google Contact.
To get VCF contact data format, I am visit my Google Contact to export the contact data. Google tell me if I have 984 contacts. The ‘Export‘ progress start and I get 1 VCF file like the step above and….. “VCF file not supported“.
In a few times over trial and error I found that if you use VCF contact data where there is only 1 contact in it, then it would be useful. I am now looking for how to separate the combined VCF data into pieces. First, ask Google. It tells, try using this tool and it. I am having problems because the tool can not be run on Windows 8. Continuing the search in other sources.
Up on a forum that said….. Open the VCF file and import into Windows Contacts. From there export Windows Contact data into split vcf contact. Turned out the import process can not be done at once. Imagine the amount of contact 984 and performed one by one. After import process done, you can follow the steps show on pictures below. Put the split VCF contact on its own folder for easy in it quest.
The next step to do is move the split VCF contact to C3322 and restore data from there.
If you are using Windows 8, then you will get some ease like me. You have to do is connect your Microsoft and Google accounts (Android) so both contact data will be synchronized on Windows Contacts. Or if you using older Windows, I think you can using Windows Live Mail to help you.
