Good luck.  The only direct (service-to-service) import of contacts you can do is from yahoo (which I hope might include att/yahoo too but haven't verified this), AOL, and gmail.  There is no importing of .csv contacts lists at all.  Oddly att/yahoo has an export of it's .csv layout but you can't import it back into att/yahoo!

 

So your only resort is to type them back into the att/yahoo contacts list one by one.  And even that is problematic in that they either may not stick or possibly take a day to show up.

 

All of this is due to recent (maybe 4 months ago) changes to the contacts UI and nothing much has worked since with contacts with no indication from anyone it will ever be fixed.  Hence the reason I said "good luck" at the beginning.
