I just purchased this Alcatel phone. It’s a bit of a dud, I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you do end up with one, here’s how to copy contacts across from the OSX address book. I assume this will work on any mobile phone.
1. Pair the phone to your computer.
– Turn on bluetooth on the phone. (On the Alcatel there was a bluetooth icon to click and select, ‘Activation:On’)
– Make sure the phone is bluetooth discoverable. (On the alcatel there was an option called ‘Visibility:On’
– On OSX, Under System Preferences, Bluetooth, Turn Bluetooth on and the phone should appear in the menu. (e.g. ‘Onetouch 2005X’) Click ‘pair’.
2. Copy the contacts across.
– Open Address Book (Contacts) and click on the name of any contact and drag them onto the desktop. It will create a .vcf file.
– In the Bluetooth control panel, double click on the name of your phone, it will open a window where you can select the .vcf file you just made. Drag the vcf file into the window and select ‘send’.
You will need to then verify and click ‘receive file’ on the phone.
– On my Alcatel phone I had to then navigate to ‘My Files’, ‘Phone’, ‘Recieved’, ‘vcf’, select it, and then select ‘Set As’, ‘Contact’.

Yes it’s a lot of work to transfer one contact – glad I’ve got an iPhone!
