Transfering Contacts from LG ENV2 to Samsung Reality

I recently came across the problem of transferring contacts from a LG ENV2 to a Samsung Reality. Here is the solution I devised:

1. Use BitPim to download contacts from ENV2

2. Export vCards v2.1

3. Break the single vCard into multiple vCards. I did this using vcardsplitter. This step is key as the Samsung Reality does not support vCards with multiple contacts.

4. Create the directory my_contacts on a micro-SD card.

5. Copy the vCards into this directory

6. Put the micro-SD card into Samsung Reality

7. On the Samsung Reality do the following:
Menu->Settings and Tools->Memory->Card->My Contacts->Copy->Copy All
