Here is a python script to import contacts from your SIM card into your neo.

Just copy it to your neo, install python-dbus, and then run:

 python addContact sim

On my neo, for some reason I can't connect to dbus when running from an ssh session (either USB or over Bluetooth). So you'll probably have to run the above command in the neo Terminal.

It will import all of the contacts on your SIM into openmoko-contacts. Unfortunately, my SIM doesn't seem to give a contact type, so I arbitrarily set the first phone number for a given name to Home, the next to Work, and any remaining to Cell numbers. I figure it's far easier to click the drop-down & correct them as necessary than to type all your contact info in manually on the neo keyboard, which was my option before I wrote this :-)
