Worked for me too.  I had to do it one contact at a time though, from
the terminal on the phone.
I wrote a small (4 line) script to import all vcard contacts in a
directory.  (Attached)
Put it in /usr/bin then cd into the directory with your contacts and
type ''

You'll have to hit 'ok' for each contact.  Does anyone know of a better
way to do this?
