Can you export the address book on the Mac as a vCard file or multiple vCard files or a CSV (Comma Separated Variables) file?

The vCard's you can send one by one to your phone, or you can use utilities like Contacts Manager: http://my-symbian.com/7650/applications/applications.php?fldAuto=392&faq=2

you can export your entire Addressbook as VCF File (vCard v2.1 not v3) by dragging all your addressbook to the desktop, if you want Carriage Return in Adresses or comments, you have to edit the VCF file to convert "\n" by "=0D=0A" in adresses and comments. you must change to "note:" by "note;charset=encoding-quoted:" to interpret =0D=0A as carriage return.

After, you send the file to the phone and you can use a symbian software named SmartvCard (you have to download to your 6260)

this program for the téléphone will import the entire VCF file to your Nokia 6260...

hope help

This was a great hint and I bought SmartvCard for my Nokia 6620 in order to move my contacts from Mac OS X Address book (unsupported on the date of this writing, 2004-11-22, OS X 10.3.6, iSync 1.5 v139). I had to go into Address Book preferences and choose v2.1 vCard format for export before it would work. (You mentioned this but I didn't realize it was a preference at first.) Also, once I used Bluetooth File Exchange to send the all-in-one .vcf file to the phone, I had to save it to 'My Folders' so I could browse to it from c:\system\Mail within SmartvCard.

Thanks Olivier!

While doing the same research and even considering delving it writing some form of bridge, I found this product

OnSync 1.8 (http://homepage.mac.com/antonioferraioli/)

I haven't been able to test it yet as I haven't received my Nokia 6260 yet... Let me know if it works :-)
