How to Import Contacts from Your Computer to a Galaxy Tab
You can export contacts from your computer’s e-mail program and then import them into the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It’s not easy, but it’s possible.
The key is to save or export your computer e-mail program’s records in the vCard (.vcf) file format. These records can then be imported by the Galaxy Tab into the Contacts app. The method for exporting contacts varies depending on the e-mail program:
In the Windows Live Mail program, choose Go→Contacts and then choose File→Export→Business Card (.VCF) to export the contacts.
In Windows Mail, choose File→Export→Windows Contacts and then choose vCards (Folder of .VCF Files) from the Export Windows Contacts dialog box. Click the Export button.
On the Mac, open the Address Book program and choose File→Export→Export vCard.
After the vCard files are created on your computer, connect the Galaxy Tab to the computer and transfer them.
After the vCard files have been copied to the Tab, follow these steps in the Contacts app to complete the process:
Touch the Menu icon button.
Choose the Import/Export command.
Choose Import from USB Storage.
Choose the option Import All vCard Files
Touch the OK button.
The contacts are saved on your Tab but will also be synchronized to your Gmail account, which instantly creates a backup copy.
The importing process may create some duplicates. That’s okay: You can join two entries for the same person in the Contacts app.
