My solution was to install Evolution on my computer and import all VCF files. My old mobile makes many VCF file for one contact, so when the importation was done, I delete the unnecessary contacts.

Because I've never used Evolution before, the configuration is fresh for the contacts. All contacts are stored in a file, this file must be push on the Pinephone.

For me, the Contact's file is : ~/.local/share/evolution/addressbook/system/contacts.db
Copy the file to : /home/mobian/.local/share/evolution/addressbook/system/contacts.db

Thanks, this worked great! I found that it was possible to export the contacts in my flip phone to a vcf file via bluetooth to my Linux desktop, so after doing that I installed Evolution, imported the vcf file, copied as you indicated, rebooted the Pinephone and all my contacts are there!
