I need some help please
I need to move my phone contacts to my PC, yes I know it is easy if your gmail acc and mob are synced but my problem is this the sim card in the phone is no longer working and when I try to transfer the contacts I get a message that the telephone number is not recognised by gmail.
I have connected the phone to PC and to export the contacts using "export to storage device" I get a message export has completed but I can't find the file which is Contacts.vcf I can see it in my file on my phone but nowhere on my PC
The phone is samsang s5 and I run windows 10 on PC
Advice will be much appreciated

When your selecting export to storage device what device are you pointing it to? Your local C drive?

Thanks

Hi Steve
It does not actually give me any options this is the sequence
contacts>setting>import/export contacts>export to device storage
than a popup box appears
Confirm export

Your contacts will be exported to:/storage/emulated/0/Contacts_001.vcf
CANCEL OK
Please note the phone is connected to the PC I can see it in "This PC"

Yes did that and nothing, but I have resolved this issue not how I expected to as it seems to be a long way round
I found Contacts_001.vcf in my files on the phone and dragged it onto the PC
Thank you all for your help
