Question Which Linux to cell phone integration software to help develop?


Hello

Integration of cell phone and PIM is important to me. The only effective way I know to do this satisfactorily is nokia's PC Suite and that's a Windows-only application that needs Outlook so I run Windows XP in a VirtualBox virtual machine under ubuntu, only for PC Suite and Outlook (and printing but I can easily change printer).

It would be great to do everything on Linux and drop both WXP and Outlook. I feel so strongly about this I'm prepared to spend time developing software to make it workable -- but which of the many Linux part-solutions should I best work on?

My interest is in integration of a nokia 3110c (S40, 3rd edition) with Evolution.

Best

Charles

Have you ever heard of BitPim? http://www.bitpim.org/ I've been using it for a while. I don't know what models it supports. I've had very good results with LG and Motorola phones.

Hello tekhead2

Thanks for the heads up and good news that BitPim is working well for you. BitPim seems to support only phones based on the Qualcomm CDMA chipset: supported phones list.

Best
