Smile Correct Contact Format For importing

ID:	967119 I uploaded an official contact file from verizon. I successfully imported all 200+ contacts to my new replacement KIN

In order for this to work, you MUST use the .xml file below. You may delete the numbers that came in the file, but nothing else. Deleting anything else will cause the string to be incomplete. So please, if you are adding contacts, or deleting, make sure to just erase the names and not the whole thing. If you are adding contacts, then you can copy and past this:

<Contact>
<FirstName></FirstName>
<LastName></LastName>
<PhoneNumbers>
<PhoneNumber PhoneType="mobile"></PhoneNumber>
</PhoneNumbers>
</Contact>

Once you copy and paste that, just insert your names and numbers and it should look like this:

<Contact>
<FirstName>Chuck</FirstName>
<LastName>Norris</LastName>
<PhoneNumbers>
<PhoneNumber PhoneType="mobile">1885555555</PhoneNumber>
</PhoneNumbers>
</Contact>

That is a complete string, after you are done with one contact, just continue..example

<Contact>
<FirstName>Chuck</FirstName>
<LastName>Norris</LastName>
<PhoneNumbers>
<PhoneNumber PhoneType="mobile">1885555555</PhoneNumber>
</PhoneNumbers>
</Contact>
<Contact>
<FirstName>John</FirstName
<LastName>Smith</LastName
<PhoneNumbers>
<PhoneNumber PhoneType="mobile">122555555</PhoneNumber>
</PhoneNumbers>
</Contact>

</Contacts>
</XMLContactList>


Bold=Start of new contact
Italic=Complete xml schema end. (Nothing can be added after this text)

Then, go to file-> Save As->cellebrite.contacts-> File Type-> Extensible Markup Language (*.xml)

Don't ask how to install/use kinO! http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1091166

Open KINO, and upload the contact file to the KIN's root storage

Once that is done, go to your KIN, Dial ##PROGRAMMITT and press send (Sec code is all 0's)

Go to contacts then select import.
If Import is grayed out, then you did something wrong.

Just make sure when you import your contacts, to put in the the names/numbers in their respective area. It will not work if you don't. YOU DO NOT NEED TO INPUT A LAST NAME!

Also, If you wish to edit the contacts file, below is a link to the software i use.

Here is my contacts file. Editing is common sense, and easy. For some it may be complicated. If you need help, leave your comments or pm me.
