Please help me to sort out some contacts issues.
This question may well have been asked before - if so, I am sorry, but I am tearing my hair out.
I don't use Android. I am a WP man.
My wife does, and I have just bought her a new Nexus 4 to replace her old HTC Sensation XE.
She started the phone up without doing any contacts/SMS management at all.
Now she is complaining to me that she has no SMS's and that her contacts are all to hell.
I've managed to get her SMS's back using an app. However, that leaves the issues of her contacts. Her Nexus is struggling to be recognised by our PC for some reason but I was able to email her contacts in a vcf file which I was eventually able to open on her new Nexus. The trouble is, that has populated the contacts with loads of "old" contacts that she no longer uses or needs or wants.
Bear in mind, somehow she has (stupidly) managed to get set up with at least two gmail accounts over the years and these are now both synced with her Nexus.
She asked me "Just get the normal contacts off my old phone and put them on the new phone"
I thought copy to sim was the answer, but it'll only hold 90 odd of her close to 400 contacts.
So - what do I do? What is the easiest way to sort this bloody mess out?
I'd be happy enough just to start from scratch - restore her Nexus and in the meanwhile do some work whittling down her gmail accounts, but I'm hoping there is an easier way. I know the easiest way would be to hand the phone to her and say "get on with it" but she will withhold sex if I do. Please help.

Yeah, I gotta agree with B.Diddy here. Sounds to me like you're making contact storage kindof complicated. As he says, just go to her main Gmail account in a browser, import her contacts there, and let it sync to the phone (which it will do automatically unless you specifically turn that off on the phone).
If she doesn't need the second Gmail account, it can be removed from her phone. If she does, she can turn off contact syncing from that account (without removing the account) easily enough in the phone's setttings (Menu->Settings->Accounts->Gmail Account-> uncheck boxes appropriately)
