Size of exported contacts
I'm using the standard Android 2.3.3 contacts app. Periodically, I'll export the contacts to the SD card and copy them to my PC for backup.
Here's the question - At the start, the file (roughly 700 contacts) was around 1MB in size. Then, suddenly, about a year ago, the exported file abruptly ballooned to 5MB, even though it was nearly the same number of contacts. Even more puzzling, about 6 months ago the exported file shrank dramatically to about 160KB.
I have no idea... Watching the export, the progress bar shows it working its way through all 700-odd contacts.
Is there a way to open the exported VCF file to see if it is complete?
Does anyone have any idea why the size has changed so dramatically?
