    Unable to view imported contacts on LG Optimus M phonebook

    I had imported all the contacts to SD card before performing hard reset on my LG Optimus M. When I put that card again on my phone, I am not able to view the contacts on my phonebook. It is possible to view the contact information while receiving an incoming call. How can I view those contacts on phonebook?

    Did you import the files back from the Sd card?
    If not the navigate to the place where you have those files and then press on it then you can import them to your contacts.
    If you have done that already then navigate to contacts from your app drawer and the while you are in there press the menu key in your phone and select the option display option in that you will find the option as display only phone numbers and other things in that scroll down to find the accounts you want to show contacts from and select the required account and select display contacts that will make your contacts visible.
    Hope it Helps.

    To See contacts from different sources like SIM, Phone or any Google account,
    Open Contacts and press the menu button...
    Hit More and Select Display options...
    And select the different contacts you want the phone to display...

    If you didn't restore the contacts from SD card, use the same app or method to Restore contacts and see if the now get displayed...

    Well you need to import your contacts from your sd card when u replaced it. To do that you need to goto the contacts app. There you will come across import/export option. There you need to select the move contact option. That's it you can view your contacts again.

    Once you created a backup for the contacts on your SD card..
    it will copy all the files onto SD card..
    Now after Resetting the device, all the phone data will be formatted..
    So now.. you also need to Import back the contacts from SD card..
    Just because they are available in SD card.. they won't appear in Phonebook..
    to import contacts, Open Contacts >> Options >> Import/Export >> Copy From - SD card >> Copy To - Phone..
    this will copy all your contacts in Phonebook..

    Hello Guest,
    Actually the backup file does not automatically add the Contacts to the Phonebook. But don't worry, it is possible to get their info for an incoming call. For that you have to manually retrieve the contacts from the backup file. So, now Just point to Menu>OI File Manager>mnt>sdcard. Now, select the folder which contains the backup file. Tap on the backup file with extension .vcf. Now, a dialopg box appears asking you to add contact info. Tap on Ok. The contacts will be copied to phonebook in a few seconds. You can check your Contact list also easily now. Thank You. Hope this solves your problem, buddy! :-)

    Once you inserted your micro sd card, you have to import all contacts to phone to view them. For that purpose, go to menu and enter into "CONTACTS". Now, go to options and select the option named import/export and again select the option "import from sd card". That will transfer all contacts to phone and you can now view them.

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
