PLease help.

Go in contacts>settings(press menu button)>click import from sd card. It should automatically select the vcard. If you have two v cards then select the latest.
If still the problem persist trying flashing another rom. or reflash it again

Edit : Keep your contacts synced with google account, you wont get such problems henceforth.

I'm on MIUI V5 and now suddenly I cannot import my vCard files anymore - <Couldn't import vCard.> With a previous of MIUI it always worked without problems. Yesterday I spent quite some time trying to figure it out and I suspect that Android 4.2.2 has some incompatibility issues with vCard format 3.0. As far as I could test if one uses VCF files in format 2.1 or earlier the MIUI import would complete successfully. My problem right now is that all my vCards are in format 3.0 and so far I couldn't find any converter software that can downgrade them for me without data loss

I really need this feature because I want to keep all my contacts only locally and not synched to any Cloud service. Did you get any far with your problem? Any information you'd like to share?

UPDATE: I spent again a lot of time playing with my vCard 3.0 files yesterday and I finally found a way to format them in a way that MIUI accepts them as contact imports without errors. By using a text editor - UltraEdit, and some simple JavaScript scripts to batch process all my 434 contact entries I basically made the following 4 adjustments:
- Remove all unnecessary entries included by my proprietary contact application - Lotus Notes
- Include a line breaks before the "PHOTO" line
- Remove all line breaks that occurred when a entry value was too long and broken into multiple lines
- Remove all semi-colons in the "ADR" line

I hope this helps!
