I seem to be unable to transfer my phone contacts to the infotainment center. What is the procedure other forum members have used?

Have you paired your phone to the car yet? If so, remember to have the Bluetooth on your phone on when you're in the car or the contacts will not show up in the Infotainment system. All contacts should show up regularly when the phone has been paired and Bluetooth is on. Watch the 2nd video starting at 6:28 for the pairing of the phone.

There really is no need to actually "transfer" your Android (or iPhone) contacts from your phone to the C7 Infotainment system. Once you pair your phone to the C7, via the Bluetooth interface, your phone's contacts will (should) begin populating into the system and soon be available for search and access whenever your phone is connected to the system. My LG G3 paired with no issue and I had access to my contacts very quickly, both from the center stack, as well as from DIC... and I can search and access via screen controls and/or by voice. Good Luck!

You probably have to answer "Yes" or "Okay" or whatever when the phone is paired when it asks you if you want to share your "contacts/data/whatever-the-message-is" with your car.

Just because it is paired does not mean the phone will allow the car to have access to your contacts data unless you explicitly give it permission.

'

When I paired my phone with the car, I think I was asked (via a prompt on the screen) if I wanted to share contacts and text messages with the car. You might try unpairing the phone (delete from the system) then repair and see if you get something like that.

No, that only works with Android. It appears to be a limitation of iOS.

Do it in Navigation. Select your phone for contacts. By default is uses "Vehicle". Change it to your phone. From there you can import them into the infotainment system as you say. Here is a link to a video. It starts at about 30 minutes explaining this, but it is worthwhile watching the complete video to get a comprehensive grasp of navigation that in turn will use your phone for the contacts and there addresses and phone numbers. If two people use the car they can both import their contacts into the infotainment system under navigation. The video explains it very well. It isn't the best production wise, but there is invaluable information in there that I think you will surely enjoy. But the key is to get your contacts imported via "Navigation". It works for any smart phone such as iPhone, android or windows phone.
Once the contacts are imported from your phone it isn't necessary to have your phone connected to access the contacts and your wife for example, can access contacts in the infocenter without needing your phone connected to it via bluetooth. Its all about saving them into it. You'll get the idea when you watch the video.
