I've not had problems with this using Blunt & IC/VC between my
MessagePad 2100 & MacBook Air, but the c510 must be interpreting the
.vcard differently. Sometimes the easiest method of figuring out why
it's parsing it differently is to manually enter the same name & phone
number in both the Newton & the phone, then export as .vcard from both
the Newton and the phone to a computer. Then compare the raw text of
the files to see what differs. Compare against the .vcard spec for
hints at what's going on.

I should be able to help with the comparison & referencing against the
spec, if needed. I helped provide Eckhart with the change to IC/VC to
get all-day events exporting correctly, so I've actually done this
before ( once :D ).
