At first People application seemed very empty. I was expecting some faces of my friends (especially those from Facebook). I'm bad with remembering names - especially those I call by their nick name ;-).

So it would be nice to have at least an option to show all photos (images) when browsing the contacts list (not only show them on favorites).

not reinventing the people, just adapt from symbian s3 (N8-00) contacts to SailfishOS UI people improve import/export people with all data saved (include picture)

1st piece of a phone unfriendly. Apps > People > import from generic "From file" without the name is useless and totally unfriendly and time consuming i would be happy to import select all in single step !

for now, people is totally unusable... for me,:-/ so i must temporary switch back to my old working Nokia N8-00 until next major update January would fix/solve annoying basic function of Jolla phone

For importing people/contacts see this question. It has some answers which worked for me. I think you should be able to export vcf files from N8, but I don't have it so you might need to ask a separate question.

thank, i finally found the issue, timeout... and vcard located on Transfers, if not selected, just ignored and not automatically imported to people and counter is increased the filename.vcf , filename_1.vcf , etc

i did send contact by bluetooth one by one with picture successfully :-) but loose a lot of precious time :-/ I see duplicate file but don't know where are stored file received on jolla (i see file in Transfers)
