I use TB as my primary AB, and the things I miss mostly are:
* unlimited phone numbers, with labels (some predefined including
machine knowledge of meaning, e.g. private home, business mobile,
some custom defined)
* unlimited email addresses, optionally with labels
* custom fields, either per contact or per address book (field
automatically available for all contacts in this AB). possibly with
ability to map it to a vcard/SyncML tag, so that they appear
properly after syncing with phone.
* Ability to link contacts, so that I can move with a single click
between husband and wife and children. Because: a) they share home
phone and street address and b) if I don't reach the husband, I
often try to call the wife, so I often need to move between the two
* Native vcard and SyncML support (very very important, must-have,
don't ignore mobile phones any longer)
