Once everything is set up, you can use the T-bird add on to sync the T-bird address book to funambol, and then use the iPhone app to sync your iPhone to the same funambol account. It works very well. A couple of mapping notes:

T-bird "email" field = iPhone "other" email field

T-bird "additional email" field = iphone "home" email field
