Here is solution to the problem that I came across and I hope it will help someone else.

I wanted to import contacts from my nokia N900. But there was a problem when merging all vcf contacts into one after transferring them to my PC. When I ran this command in windows cmd: copy *.vcf ALL.vcf, it created ALL.vcf file, but upon opening this file in jolla it only imported the first contact. I opened ALL.vcf file in WordPad and find out that every vcard should start with BEGIN:VCARD and end with END:VCARD. But in my file (ALL.vcf) all the cards ended with END:VCARDBEGIN:VCARD. So I used find and replace and changed END:VCARDBEGIN:VCARD in my file to: END:VCARD BEGIN:VCARD after that jolla recognized all of the contact and imported them just fine.
