Get "MoreFunctionsForAddressBook" from
 
http://nic-nac-project.de/~kaosmos/morecols-en.html
 
 
Install the downloaded *.xpi file in Thunderbird.
 
Export your address books to a file in Vcf format.
 
"scp" the text file containing your contacts to somewhere in your phone.
 
run phyton script.
 
Works beautifully!.
 
 
This can be expanded to a howto. Let me know what you think.

== Import for ASU/Qtopia ==
 
 
If Contacts loads but no confirm dialogue appears try renaming the file to .vcf.<br>
 
I was trying to do this with a .txt file and changing it to .vcf made it work as described.
 
 
 
== Delete all script for ASU? ==
 
 
The remove all script returns an error on ASU -
 
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: dbus-launch failed to autolaunch D-Bus session: Autolaunch requested, but X11 support not compiled in.
 
 
is there an ASU friendly version?
 
 
Edit - Qtopia uses an SQLite database and that should be edited to achieve this.
