Importing users into AD

In Active Directory Module for Windows Powershell I'm using Import-Csv .\test.csv | New-ADUser -Enabled $True -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString M5aeq -AsPlainText -force) which works to a point, I'm not getting the import of the telephonenumber and it's not placing in the Organizational Unit specified in the csv file.

test company,test company,01702 123456,OU=SarkContacts,DC=domain,DC=net

I would of preferred to import them as Contacts but I don't thing that can be done with the above method.
