    On the Mac or Ubuntu I can easily import .vcf files with contact address details. But the iPad address book does not recognize this.
    Is there an app which imports .vcf files ? I googled around but could not find one.

    Hello again...

    I have a PC, but I imported my .vcf files into my PC contacts list and then synched with the iPad.

    That worked fine. I don't know of an app that can directly import them.

    Try this link:
    import vcard files apps iPhone, iPad APP

    Shows about 7 files that reportedly will handle .vcf files?

    I used this on google: vcf import app for ipad

    I just mailed myself the VCF file...

    I just mailed myself the VCF file and clicked it in the iPad mail app. All entries were imported to my iPad address book. No apps needed...

    That mailing vcf

    Sometimes live can be simple, simply mail the vcf worked for me 300 contacts were added.

    But I prefer that the it would be possible to link my adressbook on my home computer. And what ever I try iPad keeps on looking to a https connection while I state a http connection.

    But for the time being dis was a great help for me thanks

    :)

    I have been researching this problem for about two weeks now. With latest Lion on my computer and latest OS on my iPad, Address Book does not sync with Contacts on iPad. Plain and simple. Apple is great but definitely not perfect.

    So many thanks for this easy and efficient work-around. I can promise that it works. Hope others with this problem find this thread!!!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a size limit for this to work? I exported my lotus contacts to VCF and emailed the file to ipad email and it came to 2.1MB.

    But when I click nothing happens

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
