Works also with Nokia 150, but put backup.dat file on SD card root, not in Backup folder :)

I installed pycharm and python 2.7 and I have following error:
line 49, in <module> elif s.startswith( mark ): NameError: name 'mark' is not defined

In linux also same error:

$ python2.7 vCard_S30.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "vCard_S30.py", line 52, in <module> elif s.startswith( mark ): NameError: name 'mark' is not defined

I fixed the script, but most likely there is an issue with "contacts.vcf" contents.
