1.Connect your N9 phone to a PC with a USB cable. Select the mass memory mode.

2.Using PC file manager, locate the export directory in the memory card or in N9 memory.

3.Copy the directory to PC – let’s assume the directory name MyContacts.

4.Disconnect N9 from PC.

5.Using PC, concatenate the contacts to one vCard file as follows:

    a) On Linux PC using the Terminal application:
         - go to directory MyContacts
         - cat  *.vcf  >  ALL.vcf
    b) On Windows PC  (do this in the Windows command terminal)
        - go to directory MyContacts
        - copy  *.vcf  ALL.vcf

At this point you have all of your contacts packed into one file, ALL.vcf.

  1. Connect Jolla phone to the PC with a USB cable – select “PC connection” in the USB dialog.

  2. Using PC file manager, copy file ALL.vcf to Sailfish > Phone memory.

  3. Once PC has completed copying the file disconnect Jolla phone from PC.

  4. On Jolla phone, go Settings > Applications > People.

  5. Tap on "From file" in section "Import contacts".

  6. Phone imports the transferred file to phonebook People.
