How to import contacts with a .vcf file?
#1
Howdy,

When I first ran Phosh and began setting things up, the Contacts app had me chose a contacts list and gave me the option to import a contacts list from a file.

Now that I has restarted and finished setting things up, I can't find a menu option to import a contact list from a file.

I have a list downloaded on the phone, but if there is a help file or a how-to, I can't find it.

How about doing it from the command line?

Thanks for any help!

IIRC you can load evolution on PMos: load it, import the vcf, then remove it.

Hi,

Currently there is only 'evolution' that could import contact list in vcf format. Place the vcf file in your home directory. Install it using apk:-

sudo apk add evolution
scale-to-fit evolution
evolution -i contacts.vcf
sudo apk del evolution
