I found a very simple and elegant way of doing this.  As it was quite a 
while ago, and I no longer have that version of Ubuntu running, I am 
speaking from memory.  I found an addressbook application that accepted 
csv input and allowed proper customisation of fields.  Once you have 
imported your addresses etc, it allowed export to several formats 
including vcard.  I got all my old addresses onto my Android phone using 
that.  I am fairly sure the addressbook application for Ubuntu was
