    How can I import contacts into People?
    This is what I have done so far:
    1) Export a vcard from iCloud.
    2) Saved the v card (a vcf file) on Google Drive
    3) Opened People on my Nexus 5, and clicked on three dots and Import/Export
    4) Click Import from Storage (The other option is 'Import from SIM Card': if I click that, it just says 'No contacts on your SIM card'
    5) I get the message 'searching for card data in storage', and then, finally, the message 'couldn't import card'.
    6) There is also a message in notifications: Couldn't import vCard, the format isn't supported.

    So, can anybody tell me what to do: or even just if it is possible?

    Thanks. However, it was actually those instructions that I was using. Have I gone wrong somewhere?

    Did you actually download the VCF file from your Google Drive (in the cloud) to your phone's local storage? You can't import it while it's still in Google Drive.
