Ignore that man behind the curtain.  Lifesaver2 is not the app I was
thinking of.  It saves and restores SMS messages and phone logs, not
contacts.  And Lifesaver2 stores it to the Google App Engine cloud;
Lifesaver[1] saves to the local SD card.

To make up, I searched the Aptoide repositories and came up with
something called vCardIO[2]. Haven't used it yet, tho.
