I'm using the example code from github with phonegap 1.0.0 on ios5b5 and experience the same problem.

But I'm getting a different error message:

(big json log output of all contacts)

I ran into this issue also when attempting to perform on-device testing. The problem appears to occur when there are entries in your device contacts that contain null values. The sample code for the Contacts app doesn't have much null checking around the model (where 'familyName' is used for sorting and the first letter of familyName is used for grouping).
Simplest solution to allow the app to start up without errors is to ignore any entries from your device contacts that have null values for the name.

Add the following to models/Contact.js immediately after the var deviceContact=deviceContacts[i]; line in the 'contact storage' proxy read function.

if (!deviceContact || !deviceContact.name || !deviceContact.name.familyName || !deviceContact.name.givenName){continue;}
