I tried

syncevolution --import /home/phablet/Documents/1.vcf backend=evolution-contacts database=Personal

but got this error message

[ERROR] GLib-GObject: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
[ERROR] creating source registry: Cannot autolaunch D-Bus without X11 $DISPLAY

Any suggestions?

If you have installed syncevolution-dbus package, then u need to uninstall it. From the error it looks like it doesn't have support mir. –  Khurshid Alam Nov 20 '14 at 8:49
