Default Storing and sharing contact lists/info

In preparation of getting a new phone I tried to see how I could transfer contacts from my old phone. Normally I would use the backup that is stored on the phone company's server, but it's years out of date because my old phone lost ability to do routine backups.

Well, after too much research and fiddling, I figured out how to use Bluetooth to send contacts to my PC. They came over as individual VCF files. So I assume I could also send via bluetooth to a new phone, considering that this appears to be a standard file format for storing contacts.

So now that I'm graduating to a smart phone, I guess I should think about whether to get all connected and synced via Google or some other cloud.
