All my numbers are in +61123456789 format (so plus sign for dialing
and just digits) as I have numbers for about 6 different countries in
my phone and move between Australian and UK based providers. Of the
original 8 contacts I had in my address book 4 of them had mobile
numbers specified and 4 had no numbers at all.

The original 8 contacts 4 had mobile and 4 no number at all. The
remaining contacts that I imported from the vcard file have a
combination of home/business/mobile numbers and all have an 'other'
number which is the default number for the contact in the vcard that
gnokii exported.

Will do.
