    I did a bone-headed thing, which I won't bore you with, but...

    All my contacts are gone. I have them on my Google account (thank God!)

    My question is, how do I import my Google contacts so that they are saved to my memory card?

    When I click on export from the Google contacts page, I'm asked which format to export them in.

    The choices are:
    1. google csv format (for exporting into a google account)
    2. outlook csv format (self-explanatory -- and I don't use outlook)
    3. vCard format (for importing into Apple Address Book or another application)

    My guess would be #3 except I'm exporting into an Android address book, not an Apple address book.

    But I do have a Macbook that I sync my phone with.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    First you need to import them to your phone, then export them down to the SD card. I have sync with Gmail account on. You could try to import the CSV from your computer via the USB cord attached to the phone.

    Thanks. I got them back. I don't remember if I connected the phone to my computer before or after your post, but something worked.

    Thanks again!
