!WARNING! I have the suspicion, that AGAIN not all contacts are backed up this way X-|

Open the *.vcf file in an Text-Editor and double check. GOOGLE: STOP LIMITING US!

For people who do not like to sync their contacts directly with the NSA (Google) normally you are able to export the whole Android Address book within the Address book App.

You can then transfer the exported-contacts.vcf to your new Android phone and


them as easy as navigating to the exported-contacts.vcf with your file-managerand selecting it.

It will be automatically opened with the contacts-App and all your contacts will be restored 🙂

have fun!

tested with: Android 7 / LineageOS 14.1 Contacts App imports this just fine.
