Import Contacts to Kin TwoM [Tutorial]
Ok, so I have had this phone for about a month now and was far too lazy to add my 270 contacts to my phone by hand, so I developed a webpage to convert the contacts from a Backup Assistant CSV to a Kin compatible XML file. This will NOT work with an Office CSV file (maybe in the future, we will see).
Ok so here is how it works. First, log in to your "My Verizon" account on http://verizonwireless.com/
Click "Select All" (1), then in the "Actions" dropdown, select "Export Contacts" (2)
Save the csv file it sends you. Now, go to my website http://www.craigslistcounter.net/KinContacts.aspx
and select your file in the upload section, then click upload. Save the Cellebrite XML file it sends you back.
Now, use johnkussack's most excellent KINO application
to upload the Cellebrite XML to the root of your phone (instructions for setup there).
Restart your phone.
From the phone app, hit ##77647266488 and press call. Enter 000000 in the code box. Go to the "Contacts" menu at the bottom, and click "Import Contacts".
All of your contacts should import. 270 took me a few seconds. If it is taking too long you probably didn't restart after uploading the file to your phone (tisk tisk), so just shut it down and turn it back on.
