Exporting your contacts from Thunderbird

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. Cheers, Saul

Import for ASU/Qtopia

If Contacts loads but no confirm dialogue appears try renaming the file to .vcf.
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.
