.vcf is almost a plain txt file, just formated txt, every Office program can import it and show it as plain text.

Well not really. It's heaps of JPG encoding for starters. Microsoft Word continues to show it as that with some text interspersed. Ditto Excel. It seems to want to use Microsoft Entourage. I have no idea what that is and don't particularly want to. I had no idea I had it. And I don't really use any Microsoft products normally anyway. Word is there for others.

It default opens perfectly OK into Apple's Address Book but I don't use that either and don't wish to. What I actually want is a text file of the non-picture data.
Yes I know you can do it with Android File Transfer. First remove Kies altogether.
