It's taking 15 minutes to import 30 new contacts, either saved in tab delimated or CSV.
Is this a little slow? Any advice?
are you enabling duplicate checking on import and how many contacts do you have in your database? If you are, then it checks every contact in your database against what you're importing. For example, if you have 50,000 names in your database and your dupe check is on last name, first name, then it checks your imported contacts against each contact name. So 30 contacts * 50,000 = 1,500,000 scans.

Is it slow if you try to import into the demo database?
Are you doing the import on the machine the database is on or across a LAN?
How big is your database?
What machine specs?
What version of ACT! (the full build from Help | About)?
