The fields I see in Kaddressbook's vcf are:

additionally, one of the entries has the PREF value, e.g.

In kaddressbooks I use the PREF entry and write it with the name, additionally 
this number also needs to be written first afaicr.

It's important, that kaddressbook is _compiled_ with the right headers from 
gnokii as well. Did you recompiled kaddressbook after installing the latest 
gnokii files ?

I assume, that kaddressbook encounters an invalid entry which it can't store to 
the phone.
Please ./configure kdepim with the --enable-debug flag and rebuild kaddressbook 
from scratch.
This gives you more info on the commandline and might give you an idea which 
entry couldn't be stored.
