A VCF file is where you can store the contacts. And the methods we are going to talk about not only helps you to open a VCF file, but also shows the steps to import one to a computer, which is far better than entering the numbers one by one. Though we do not need this most of the time, still, when the phone happens to be broken and you have a VCF backup in the PC, the things in this article could be useful. Many users, I believe, can encounter with such an emergency.

Part 2: Directly Open VCF File on PC

In windows XP, you can click the "Start" button and find "Contacts" to open such a file, which is as simple as the last method. But, not many users know how to deal with it in Win 7. Things are quite the same, yet we will still tell the details in the following part for your information.

Step 1. Hit the "Start" button and then click your user name. (Mine is Administrator here.) Find "Contacts" in the folder and open it.
Open Contacts
Step 2. Tab the button ">>" and you will see this. Click "Import" on the toolbar and double-click to open the very VCF file.

Step 3. When Step 2 is done, the new contacts should appear in your Contacts folder.
