A vCard is an electronic business card that contains various information about the owner including his name, e-mail address, contact number, company, etc. This is similar to the traditional printed business cards. But it can be viewed, saved and used on computers, tablets and mobile devices including Android. Android uses VCF as an extension for the vCard files on it. If you have got a vCard, you may want to import VCF to Android so you can conveniently access the information on your phonebook along with your other contacts. With this, you can call, chat or send text messages with the owner of the vCard by simply going through your contacts.

Method 2: Free Android Import vCard App
The next application that we will tackle for transferring vCards to Android device is called Contacts VCF. You can download this from the Google Play Store and install it on your Android phone. The app lets you browse, edit VCF files on your Android device directly. It also has the option to import VCF file to Android phone by choosing the “add in Android” option.
However, it does not support multiple transfers so you need to do this one by one. This could be time consuming, especially if you wish to import several vCards. Using this app, you can call the contacts saved in your vCard without actually saving them to your phone.
The two programs that we have discussed are both helpful. If you want an app to import vCard file to Android while on the go, Contacts VCF is your best option.
