Hi,
I last tried this last year and gave up as I couldn't make it work. Now I wanted to try again.

What is the recommended tools to syncronise contacts from the phone (a Nokia N95 (Symbian S60)) with Gnome Evolution? I haven't got Bluetooth on my computer, so thats not an option, only the USB cable is.

I searched and found opensync and syncml etc. But I am struggling to find descriptions on how to use those. Any idea what to do?

Cheers,

Mons :?:

Just for the record, I have found a solution.

It works in 2 stages. First sync the mobile with Google using: http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/
Second, sync Google with Evolution by creating a new addressbook and select Google rather than "On this PC" and fill in the details of your Google account.

The contacts don't need synchronizing all that often anyway, so it won't be much trouble and it should be easy to migrate to a new Android based phone soon...
