ATT phones are GSM so you'd need something like gsm-utils

If you went with a CDMA provider (Sprint or Verizon) I'd recommend
bitpim (http://packages.ubuntu.com/bitpim).

Both tools should allow you to interact with your phone and maintain
your phonebook and other phone features (depends on the phone model).  I
only have experience with bitpim since I have Verizon.
