Default [Q] Transferring contacts to CM7

I recently installed CM7 on my phone and I have been periodically switching between my backup of stock 2.2 and CM7, in order to retain the functionality of my phone but use CM7 when I want to. I'd like to make CM7 my everyday platform. However, I'm having a problem with contacts.

I have my initial stock froyo contacts backed up to my google account using the default settings, and on CM7 it is importing contacts from the google account and from facebook. Problem is, it didn't import many of the phone numbers I added to facebook contacts as part of the motoblur contacts list. The other problem is on CM7 I can't edit a facebook contact to also make them a phone contact, which frankly is a bit ridiculous based on how simplistic it is to do using 2.2 with motoblur.

How can I transfer all my contacts from 2.2 to CM7? Also, how do I add a phone number to a facebook contact without creating a completely different contact on CM7?

Contacts.vcf look up the instructions. Worked for me. Hope that helps.
