Tools to import contacts from Excel to Android

Android is one of the best mobile operating systems and it has a large user base globally and continues to overtake iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry OS and many other mobile operating systems.

Many people get an Android as their first smartphone and, on the other hand, many people switch from outdated systems like Symbian to Android. Either way, they will find many changes and most of the way the changes are in terms of how things work in the Android ecosystem.

While changing the phone people have one question in their mind that how can they bring all their contacts on their new Android device. Well, if you are making a switch from one Android phone to another, it is quite easy. All you need to do is synchronize your contacts to your Google account, and the contacts will be downloaded automatically to the new phone once you sign into that account.

But what if you are not coming from an Android phone? In that case manually entering all your contacts can be challenging and to be honest totally pointless, right? It indeed is as it is time-consuming, and there are better ways to do this.

No matter which phone you use, there are options to backup your contacts. Be it a dumb phone or a smartphone. Also, all these backups are mostly taken in the VCF format, so it is quite easy to restore them on a different phone or a device as well as a phone running Android.

In this post, I am going to tell you about some tools and ways to import contacts in your new Android phone from VCF format. VCF format is actually a spreadsheet format which is easy to work on in Excel and hence this post ultimately becomes a post about Best tools to import contacts from Excel to Android.

Without any more delay, let’s just get started with this post.
