When I try to import a contact from vcf file that has " (%22) in filename it doesn't import the contact.

How to reproduce?

For example send through Bluetooth to your Jolla vcf file that has " (%22) in filename. Then select this vcf file from transfers page - nothing happens (normally you would get import page from People app)

It appears that DQUOTE is a legal char in name value fields, unless I've missed something: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2426.txt

@MattVogt: I've meant filename not name value in contact

@fk_lx: thanks for the clarification, I read that incorrectly :)

@fk_lx - I've just tried and failed to reproduce this problem, using version and a file named "blah".vcf.

I created this file on the device with vim - how did you come across the problem?
