Importing contacts into Gmail does nothing. Why?

by AngryHacker   Last Updated August 07, 2017 00:03 AM

In the Contacts section of GMail, I go to the More... menu, select the .csv file of my contacts and the click Import. The browser thinks for a minute or so then comes back.

However, none of the contacts are imported. And no error message comes up. How do I troubleshoot this?

Some facts about my contacts:

  • There are 9,800 contacts in the csv file.
  • Contacts are exported from Thunderbird
  • I've also tried exported from Thunderbird as a .vcf file and importing that - with same problems.
  • I tried importing contacts to Outlook and it worked perfectly.

I suspect your csv file is formatted incorrectly.
