Question Tried importing contacts from Samsung to Xiaomi phone, but only names were imported?

Apr 29, 2020
For some reason,importing the contacts to my Xiaomi redmi note 7 phone just imports the names,not the phone numbers.
All i did,is export the contacts using the corresponding utility from the contacts app,and then import them using the other phone from the contacts app again.
But there are no phone numbers, just names.
Anyone knows why?
Check the exported file (it's probably CSV), open it with a Notepad, and see whether it has the necessary info. That way, you'll know where the problem is.

Most probably, the two sets expect information in different format, eg "Name" vs "First Name", etc. Export contacts from both sets, and compare headings. Excel or Google Sheets (or any other app reading CSV files into tabular format) will be of great help.
