gContactsImporter lets you import your contacts (or address book) from another phone or Laptop/PC to your iPhone. If you have just bought a new iPhone and don't want to type in hundreds of your address book entries from your existing phone again, gContactsImporter is the app for you. In just a few taps you are set.
Do not trust Google with your data? Prefer to use your own FTP site? You might want to look at our other iPhone application iContactsImporter which does the same thing, but lets you use your own FTP site.

gContactsImporter imports your contacts from a .csv file. Most of the handset providers have a PC suite (e.g. Nokia, Sony Ericsson etc.) from which you can easily export all your contacts to a .csv file. You can also do the same from most of the computer applications (Outlook, Thunderbird etc.) and other mobile devices (Palm etc.). Here's the step-by-step guide to import your contacts.
Export your existing address book to .csv file (refer to your mobile handset manual for details). For e.g. if you want to bring your contacts from a Nokia phone, you can use the Nokia PC Suite to first export your contacts from the Nokia handset to a .csv file.
You can learn more about Google Docs and how to upload your .csv files at http://docs.google.com/support/?hl=en . Please note that when you upload your .csv file to Google Docs, please 'uncheck' the option "Convert documents, presentations, and spreadsheets to the corresponding Google Docs formats" to avoid your .csv file getting converted to spreadsheet format automatically.
Launch gContactsImporter by tapping the icon on your iPhone.
