I spent some time on phonebook importing last weekend (for fun :-).
Currently, I am able to read the phonebook entries from the SIM and
insert them into EDS.  Unicode entries are also supported, but the
support is a little bit ugly.  I plan to work on a cleaner way for
unicode support over this weekend.

My biggest problem right now is that openmoko-contacts is not aware of
the phonebook on SIM card.  This means, deletion or renaming from
openmoko-contacts do not propagate back to the SIM.  This can cause
confusion to the users.  Do you have any idea how to deal with it?

I also noticed this problem from the gsmd side:

Phonebook import is a must for me.  It is really great to see you also
work on it.
