Importing contacts from an older phone

I just placed an order for a Galaxy Flip3 which will hopefully arrive next week sometime. My current phone (an old HTC) allows me to export all my contacts to a file with the extension .vcf - so I'm wondering if the Flip3 offers any way to import from that format? Or if there's any way to convert from .vcf format to some format which the the Flip3 can understand?

[Edit...] In case it helps, I just realised that I've a Google account which can convert from .vcf format into .csv format

I think I've transferred vcfs to my Flip 3 recently though it was for single contacts only rather than the whole phone book. The Flip does come compatible with Samsung's "Smart Switch" app installed by default. I haven't used it myself but the app is built for the exact purpose of transferring files and contacts from old phones to a new Samsung.

Woohoo! It just arrived - near enough exactly 24 hours after I placed the order!! It seems to have come with a lead (poss. USB-3) but the bad news is that none of my computers seem to have USB-3 ports. Does that mean I won't be able to charge it?? The manual mentions something about wireless charging but doesn't give any further details... 😞
