    Try 'contacts vcf' from the play store. It should import them directly from your internal storage

    The unfortunate thing is that resellers come and go, they don't last the time.
    It's a very cutthroat industry being dominated by the 3 main telcos.
    These companies are way too big with lots of financial backup.

    It's cool conceptually, but do you have a use for it? If your phone will last over a day, you wouldn't need something like that unless you were going up bush for a week..

    They're great if you need to top up your devices when you can't get to a powerpoint. So going bush it would be useful, if you didn't have an inverter or car adaptor

    It might also be handy on longhaul flights, but some planes now have usb power in the armrest. I can't imagine when I would use it, because i'm usually near a powerpoint at some time of the day. Even driving across the country we had power every night to charge our devices.

    If it were me, I'd only grab one if I had a reason, coz else it would likely be stuffed by the time I might want to use it a few years down the track.

    i was thinking the same thing, now a days when you travel there is multiple places to charge stuff, as it can charge laptops i have had the issue with not bringing my charger, but again you may forget both its not a guarantee, so again i dont see why people so need these power packs in the current age. but it is a great idea and i may consider in the future but as its 300 dollars normally but i can wait, for a time where i can start having the problem

    I have been around since April. We have a lot of fun and frustration those days. I said a lot about how incompetent and inefficient the Company run. We should have Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth OnePlus Groups and meet regularly for hands on experience.
    @SydneySider can we organize a get together on Saturday while you're in Perth?

    I agree with @kbzj I export my address book to .vcf file and import it to the new phone.
    If you have NFC in both, it makes life easier as well.

    Have a look of the Xiaomi Power Pack even it's half the capacity. Much cheaper http://www.mi.com/hk/dianyuan/ But the battery lasts for the whole day in most case, why do you need it? Do a search about power pack in the Forum - enough debates
