[QtExtended] Delete all contacts on sim/export to sim/import from sim

Hi all,

it seems qtextended by default imports all contacts from SIM (wether
or not you want it). If the contact was already in the addressbook
(like in my case: I first imported my VCF file), it tries to merge the
two, but this sometimes fails (mostly because the name is shorter on
the sim than on the phone).
End result: 2 contacts in the list with the same number, but one with
a shorter name ...
Even the logic for updating the SIM is flawed: I have 200 contacts on
SIM (the maximum here), and these get imported. But when I try to edit
a contact that's imported from SIM, I get a warning that the SIM is
full and the contact can't be saved on the SIM, even though the
contact is on the SIM (this can be a simple bug, though).

So my question is: can I prevent this automatic import from SIM
contacts (make it optional via a config file or so)? Or is there a way
to delete all contacts on the SIM via the qtextended interface (I
might have overlooked something)?
Ideally, I would have 2 options: "export all to sim", "import all from
sim". No intelligent logic when a contact gets updated, that the SIM
needs updating as well ...
I don't care about merging and stuff, and my current SonyEricsson P900
does it like that as well :-)
