I want to populate some of the users information from  the Userprofiles (name and telephone) and populate them as a contact list in Sharepoint 2010 so this list can act as a phonebook...

How can I do this ?

    Assuming you are OK with writing .NET code, you could build a feature with a button or link that triggers it.  The code behind would go out and read your userprofile repository and refresh your contact list (a basic list with appropriate fields defined).

    You could also build a web part that uses a grid view to display the contents of the user profile database (you get to control what fields it displays this way).

    Bamboo solutions has a purchase web part that may do what you are looking for.

    This site: claims to have a web part that does exactly what you are looking for but I have never heard of so be careful.
