errrr,,, not easily Smiley Happy

 

You need to move those VCF files to your PC > Import or get them into Outlook.

 

Then, using Desktop Manager sync your updated Outlook to your BlackBerry.

 

Download Desktop Manager from here:

Re: can i import contacts from a vcf file

Right if you can copy the VCF files onto your computer you can import them into Outlook. In Outlook you can go into File | Import and Export and import from a VCF file. Then you can do like JSanders suggested and use the Desktop Manager to synchronize with the BlackBerry

Re: can i import contacts from a vcf file

If you go to media where the files got transfered the default is media card --> blackberry --> documents

 

Then when you see the vcf files open them and select add to contacts

Not unless it actually helps someone, and you've posted very little detail or instruction on how to do what you've recommended.

 

And begging for "likes" is bad manners.
