  2. Thank you, this was a big help. I had trouble with the contacts mysteriously disappearing on a sim card when transferring to a new phone. At least I was able to get them from a back up and type them into an excel spread sheet. Now they’re in a .vcf format I can safely back them up across the PC and email as well as put them on any phone or device now.
