2 Methods to Transfer Contacts from Sony Xperia to iPhone
Had an Xperia X10 mini, today I upgraded to an iPhone 5. Phones4U told me I could connect to an email account and sync contacts across and from there to iPhone, by that time my old SIM had been disconnected but they said I would be able to do this via my wireless network at home. The Sony phone with the dead SIM will not connect to my google account at home via wireless and the Sony PC Companion/media go program is useless. I suspect my only hope is that all my contacts are saved on a .vcf file on the micro SD card that is in the Sony phone, is there a way I can import this .vcf file into the iPhone?
