    I want to move my contacts from my old HTC desire to my shiney new One S. Holy s**t why cant this thing just have an SD card.

    I've tried orange backup (total pish, 'network connection failed' despite my just downloading it over said network)

    HTC sync, total pish.

    My BackupPro, total pish. Says pin/password combo is wrong. IT ISN'T!!

    The easiest way is to have all your contacts stored as Google contacts (ie in gmail)

    When you first set your phone up it asks if you want to transfer contacts, you can do this by bluetooth. I did with from my HTC Desire also did on the wifes crappy old Nokia.

    ... and yet one other way ... :)
    Export your contacts to the SD card (you'll find it as .vcf file on the root of your SD card).
    With this file on the root of your One S's storage you can import your contacts to your new phone.

    thanks everyone. i guess it stems from when i had my old phone and didnt bother saving to my gmail. exported to SD and put the file onto my One s, but not sure how to extract the numbers into usable contacts on my phone.

    my last attempt will be to get a micro sim adapter and plug it in2 my desire.

    at least from now on gmail looks to be my saviour. is there a way i can backup all my contacts 2 there now?

    got a working solution:

    go to settings > apps > all apps

    Find contact storage and clear data. (This will delete all contacts so make sure they are backed up, Gmail usually does this automatically but make sure)

    also, find facebook and clear data for that too..

    This will remove all facebook contacts too.

    Simply log back into facebook and select dont sync with contacts, And get your normal contacts back from gmail...

    worked for me
