Default Transfer of contacts from prior phone - problems -

I had a Palm Treo 700W until 2010 and accumulated about 800 contacts. I went iPhone for a couple of years (without transferring the contacts) but got a Galaxy III a couple of weeks ago and finally wanted to get all those contacts into the new phone. These contacts are broken up into about 8 categories - I am able to transfer (via Bluetooth) any vcf file - for "All", or any of the 8 categories, but the contacts don't make it into the contact list on the new phone (it says incompatible file format when I try to open the .vcf file). What is so odd is that when doing all these categories, I did "Unfiled" (which only contained 2 contacts) and those contacts made it into the contact list just fine (and without having to open the vcf file, which is also different from all the other categories). Any idea what it is I'm doing wrong? Is it the # of contacts in each category that's making the transfer belch?

Doing this via getting the file from the backup SD card in the Treo would be fine as long as I could figure out a way to do it - I'm looking to transfer calendar, memos, etc. as well (from Treo & iPhone) once I figure out how.

Thanks in advance everyone -
