gnokii --writephonebook --overwrite --memory-type ME --vcard
in the script mentioned:

Write Succeeded: memory type: ME, loc: 336, name: Removed Removed, number:
Write Succeeded: memory type: ME, loc: 337, name: Removed Removed, number:
Write failed (Data format is not valid.): memory type: ME, loc: 338,
name: , number:

[at this point $? is 20]
