I've just started using Ubuntu One. It tells me I can import my Gmail contacts. How can I do that?

Gmail is a great email service and Thunderbird is one heck of a free email client. Adding your Gmail account to Thunderbird is very simple and straight forward

And then reenabled the Contacts Sync on Ubuntu One Control panel and restarted Thunderbird and all the contacts were then there.
