Migrate contacts from Verizon phone to iPhone
Authored by: robleach on Jul 10, '09 10:50:21AM
I was interested in this hint as it makes what I've been wanting to do much easier than I thought it was, but I was afraid to go through with it since I didn't know the format of the tab-delimited file (i.e. what columns had to be which info), so I looked it up:
When exporting a tab-delimited or CSV file, you may want to write down the order of the information fields. This will help you in step 4 if the exported file doesn't contain labels.

If you are importing a text file, use the pop-up menus in the Text File Import dialog that appears to specify how to import the data. If the first record contains labels instead of information for a contact, select the "Ignore first card" checkbox.

Use the left and right arrows to see different records in the file you're importing. This helps you determine how to set the pop-up menus. If you don't want to import a field, set the pop-up menu to "Do not import."

To set the pop-up menus for address fields, choose the type of address (home, work, or other) in the pop-up menu next to the first item of the address. Then use the address pop-up menus that appear to choose the corresponding data for each address field.
