Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Import Contacts From Device Storage in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

A contacts file is usually saved as .vcf file. By using the import/export menu in the stock Contacts app, you cannot only import .vcf files from the SD card, but also from the internal storage. You can import a single contact file or multiple contacts files you have saved in the internal storage to your contacts list at once.


How to import .vcf file in the device storage to your contacts list?
Basically, you can import .vcf files to your phone contacts list or other accounts (e.g: Google account or Samsung account), but as the example, we'll try to import .vcf file that has been saved in the internal storage to the phone contacts list by using the following steps:
  1. Open Contacts app.
  2. If needed, tap the Contacts tab.
  3. Tap or long press the Recent apps key to open up the additional options and then select Settings.
  4. Tap Contacts.
  5. Tap Import/export.
  6. Tap Import from device storage.
  7. Tap Device to add the contacts in the .vcf files to your phone contacts list.
  8. If you only have a single vcf file in your internal storage then the file will be imported directly. If you have some vcf files in your internal storage then you'll be provided with the following options:
    • Import one vCard file: select this option if you want to import a single .vcf file in the internal storage to your phone contacts list.
    • Import multiple vCard files: select this option if you want to import more than one .vcf files in the internal storage to your phone contacts list at once.
    • Import all vCard files: select this option if you want to import all .vcf files in the internal storage to your phone contacts list at once.
  9. Tap OK button.
  10. If you have chosen to import one or multiple vCard files then you'll need to select which .vcf files you want to import and then tap OK button. If you have chosen to import all vCard files then all .vcf files in the internal storage will be imported directly.
  11. The selected .vcf files have been imported to your phone contacts list.
