We like the look of Plaxo because it's more likely to have the Phone Numbers of your contacts something FB and others probably don't have. We're definitely going to look at integrating it for importing contact data.

I'm also interested in what people find a useful level of 'import your contacts because it'll be useful to you' which doesn't seem like 'invite all your friends to our application so we can get more users'! Whenever I sign up for things the options for bringing your contacts too raises this issue.

We'll do some more research on what contacts people want to add. Looks like Plaxo s the winner right now though.
