Hi Helge,

The export to file works well for me now. Pawel wrote to me how to do it 

$ cat contacts.vcf | gnokii --writephonebook -o -m ME -v

My mistake was is that I typed the file name after "$gnokii --writephonebook 
... ", because I was influenced by usage of GPG - for GPG the file to encrypt 
is typed after: "gpg -e ... ". But with Gnokii I am to type first: "$  cat 
file_name.vcf |" and only then "gnokii --writephonebook -o -m ME -v". 

For my Nokia 6210 import & export works fine. I do not see any errors. I need 
this feature to back-up the phonebook for the case of phone loss. Besides, 
since it exports into the text *.VCF file, I will probably be able just add 
new contacts in this text file and then upload it to the phone, without 
numerous windows mouse-clicking.

I will certainly try KDE 3.2.0. I am thinking of buying the new distro with it 
one day. I never installed KDE from downloaded files. 

And I will also try to install Knokiisync after I return to my my fast 

tks & brgds Alexey
