Default Can I import contacts from an excel file, and not through gmail account?

Hey everyone. Trying to import contacts from an xls file into the android.

I exported an excel file containing names and phone numbers from my old phone.
I dont want to import it to gmail but only to import it directly to my Desire.
And idea how to do so?

I use Outlook to do this but you could import the contacts into Google Contacts , sync and remove them from Google.

In Excel you could your contacts save as .csv file.
The Desire (in People app) can import .csv from the SD card.

EDIT: A better way is to install MyPhone Explorer (app on phone, host on PC).
Import the Excel file directly to the MyPhone Explorer and sync the Desire with MyPhone Explorer. You can sync via USB or WiFi (I use WiFi )

I have a samsung admire and have a saved contact list in an excel .csv file.

1. How do I "Import the Excel file directly to the MyPhone Explorer"?
2. Can I import 30,000 numbers to it?
3. I know I can text from myphoneexplorer to multiple people at once, but is it possible to send 30,000 text at once from it? (send a text blast)

Thanx,
Jose
