Yeah, from talking with others, I understand it is possible to run
conduit/python on a jailbroken iphone - and get access to the PIM
data. In fact i am working on a branch of conduit which removes a
number of dependencies to make this easier. Once this is working, we
can then sync from the iphone, over the air, using our network sync

That depends on the version of thunderbird. AIUI older versions of
thunderbird stored contacts in a mork db, I think they now use sqlite.

Once you can get the contacts out of thunderbird, and iphone, the rest
should just work
