    It definitley appears that the only real problems are occuring when names have characters other than normal letters & numbers in them.

    Unforunatley, between school & work, I havent had a chance to play around with it.

    For anyone else that wants to use it, just try modifying your contact names on the website before downloading the webpage, making sure the names only have standard characters in them.

    Excellent work... I wrote something similar in Python (quick and dirty, but it gets the job done) today when I needed to move contacts from a dead V3m to a Samsung Saga, feel free to use it if you're like me a Mac/Linux user and don't run Windows:

    ---- begin code block ----
    #!/usr/bin/python
    import string
    file=open("phonebook.html","r")
    print "\"Name\",\"Mobile\",\"Work\",\"Home\""
    numName = ""
    numMobile = ""
    numWork = ""
    numHome = ""
    for line in file:
    [tab]if string.find(line, "id=\"x") != -1:
    [tab][tab]if numName != "":
    [tab][tab][tab]print "\"" + numName + "\",\"" + numMobile + "\",\"" + numWork + "\",\"" + numHome + "\""
    [tab][tab][tab]numName = ""
    [tab][tab][tab]numMobile = ""
    [tab][tab][tab]numWork = ""
    [tab][tab][tab]numHome = ""
    [tab][tab]numName = line[1+string.find(line, ">", string.find(line, "id=\"x")):string.find(line, "</span>")]
    [tab]if string.find(line, "Mobile</strong>") != -1:
    [tab][tab]numMobile = line[string.find(line, "Mobile</strong>")+15:string.find(line, "</span>")]
    [tab]if string.find(line, "Work</strong>") != -1:
    [tab][tab]numWork = line[string.find(line, "Work</strong>")+13:string.find(line, "</span>")]
    [tab]if string.find(line, "Home</strong>") != -1:
    [tab][tab]numHome = line[string.find(line, "Home</strong>")+13:string.find(line, "</span>")]
    print "\"" + numName + "\",\"" + numMobile + "\",\"" + numWork + "\",\"" + numHome + "\""
    ---- end code block ----

    Just save the print view HTML source of your phonebook to phonebook.html, copy and paste the code into a file, replace [tab]s with tabs, chmod with exec privileges and run, it will output the csv data to stdout.

    Thanks, it works great!
    As stated earlier, the key is taking out any strange symbols that aren't letters/numbers. This included the #BAL, #MIN etc. for me, and I just deleted the entire contact entry to speed things up. I love it, quick and simple.

    AWESOME! spreading the good word. Thanks so much... I was worried about this as Friday is approaching. Hopefully it'll import the files as easily as they were exported. Fantastic work!

    Verizon now provides native CSV export:

    Consider this program officially retired!

    Awesome. I totally suggested that to verizon a few months ago when I was having contact woes. Great to finally see it.
