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.
