Default [Tutorial]: How to import multiple vCards into Google Contacts at once

Hey folks,

I hope i chose the right forum for this, if not, maybe some mod can push it to the right section.

I want to share a quick solution with you that has helped me a great deal with getting my contacts from my soon-to-be-ex Nokia 5800 into my upcoming android device:

As many of you may know, google contacts supports importing vCards, however, it only can import 1 vCard at once.

This proves to be a major pain in the a**, as Nokia, at least on my 5800, tends to store each contact in a separate vCard file once I export my contacts to the microSD card.

You have 2 options here:
Either install mail for exchange on your device and sync it to your google account,
or import each vCard separately (which may be hassle-free if you are forever-alone and have only 3 contacts, but I already struggled with my fairly small amount of ~60 contacts),so heres a little trick you can do to workaround this:

Copy all your vcf files into one directory.
Open a windows command prompt, navigate to your previously created directory and simply type
Code:
copy *.vcf XXX.vcf
with "XXX" being your destination file.

What this does, it copies all contents of your separate *.vcf files into one single file. Now import this single file into your google contacts account and all your contacts should import just fine.

Hope this helps some ppl with the same problem.

Cheers
