    Hi,
    You can restore the contacts from SD card to the phone by opening the "File manager" application and then open the folder where you have the contacts file in your SD card. Once you have the file select tap on that and you will be able to add the contacts to your Google account as well as to your phone unsynchronized select the required option and then contacts will be imported.
    The second method is to open the "Contacts" application from the application drawer and then press the menu button where you will find an option as "Import\Export" by selecting the option you will be able to Import the contacts from SD card by selecting the option "Import from SD" once that is selected you can navigate to SD card and import the files.
    Hope this Helps.
