Notsure VCard Import Problem

Hello all,

I have a Samsung Mesmerize, Model Number SCH-I500. I recently exported my contacts to the SD card in my phone. My phone named the file "00001.vcf" I then copied the file to my computer so I could edit the file with Notepad. I have done so with no problems. When I was finished with the edit I saved the file as "00002.vcf". I then copied the file to the SD card on my phone. When I tried to import the 00002 file, I received the following error:

"Reading of vCard data has failed

Failed to parse vCard though it seems in valid format, since the current implementation does not support i (This vCard has nested data in it.)"

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why or what the problem is. Can anyone help?

I can't help with what your doing with Notepad, but I can give you an easy solution...

The overall goal is to get your contacts added to your Gmail account, then you can edit them on your computer and they will update automatically on your phone...

From your contacts screen, press menu - more - export/import - import from SD Card (since you already exported to SD Card). Choose your Gmail account and then the correct file (the one thats not corrupt).

So basically you export your contacts to the SD card, then import from the SD card to your gmail account.

This process will send all your contacts from your "phone" to your "Gmail" account. Then all you have to do is log into your Gmail account on a computer, and edit away!

Hopefully that all makes sense, let me know if I forgot a step.

Best.

Confused Thanks but I Need More Help

Thanks, I understand your instructions, but it isn't going to help with what I am trying to do.

I have already exported/imported my contact information into my gmail account. In doing so I noticed that when I look at a contact, I have double the information. For example, if I have a phone number under both "Phone" and "GMail", I will see two of the same phone numbers when I look at the contact information. The same goes for emails, address's, etc.

So after I was satified that my GMail account had all of my contact info, I deleted all contacts under "Phone". I edited my exported vCard file from my "Phone" contacts and renamed. I simply got rid of all information per contact except the phone numbers. That's it. I made sure the syntax was correct. I then wanted to import the new file under "Phone", delete the phone numbers from my GMail account, thus giving me only one phone number per contact (in theory). This is when I discovered my import problem.

It isn't a huge deal. I just noticed I couldn't group any of my contacts in my phone because I didn't have any "Phone" contacts. I don't know if I am missing any other functions due to not having any "Phone" contacts.

Any more help with the new information?

Default import vcard into Outlook

What I can suggest you is to make the changes in the vcards and then import them into Outlook with vCard Import tool from Import vCard to Outlook, Excel & CSV file aand then sync your SAMSUNG phone to outlook to get the contacts back into phone.

This is probably a non-issue for the original poster, but might help new viewers. When creating .htaccess files, I was instructed to turn off the Word Wrap feature within Notepad, because it will add unseen carriage return characters to the file. Turning that feature of may help. I don’t know
