Hello Jolla people,

I have Sailfish running on Xperia XA2 -Dual SIM. I would like to transfer contacts from old phone to new one. But there is no possibility to import contacts from file. I thought it should be somewhere inside "People" app. But there is only "Select contacts", "Show search" and "Add contact"menu items.

So I would like to ask, how can I import contacts ? Thanks for answer

if you dont mind using terminal:

Install vcardconverter if not already installed.

pkcon install nemo-qml-plugin-contacts-qt5-tools

Import contacts from vCard

devel-su -p vcardconverter contacts.vcf

Export local contacts to vCard

devel-su -p vcardconverter --export contacts.vcf
