Thank you very much, that works.

To be exact, as it turns out my contacts are already locally saved
in /home/root/Applications/Qtopia/qtopia_db.sqlite.

I guess that that one is a mirror of my SIM card, as I can't remember
transferring them (also pushing a new image onto the phone would have
removed them before). For some reason I can't get my SIM card to show
my the contacts, all I get is "OK". Well, doesn't matter as long as the
qtopia_db is up to date I guess.

Thanks again!
