Well, you don't say what version/distro of Linux you have, but a quick Google search turns up lots:

It looks like the moto4lin package, or kmobiletools, will do what you want. Not sure if it works via bluetooth, but definitely does via USB cable.

Also, use caution here. If you're wanting to get these contacts up to your new iPhone, good luck. There aren't any good tools right now (without jailbreaking, etc.), to let the iPhone work with Linux. You might be able to use your browser with MobileME, and import a file into your contacts, though....
