    i've tried to do the import thing the the preferences too.
    but still nothing appears and no contacts appear when searching.

    Note that the problem may be on the Signal end. Their servers are a bit overloaded nowadays, what with everyone fleeing from Wassup.

    I finally just got rid of it, just a bit too rough for my liking.

    Signal for desktop will only allow you to see other Signal users - although you can use it for SMS on your phone, you will not be able to message anyone from the desktop app who is not a Signal user. Makes it unusable for me.
