My problem was that I used the 'addressbook' function via ssh on the
host.. That does not work. As soon as I did it directly in the phones
terminal, it worked fine.
Importing from VCard is much better that reading from SIM :-)
About exporting, the wiki says:
"Exporting to VCF can be done via qtmail's 'send all' function (which
only supports sms, bluetooth)"
In the Contact list, there is a 'Send all' function in the 'Options'
menu. I think that's the one they are talking about. I assume you can
use it to sent a VCard file to your desktop. I haven't tried it yet....
