Sony Ericsson P900


Hi all,
I'm trying to communicate between my Mandrake 10 linux (Gnome) desktop and my Sony Ericsson P900 mobile phone via the USB dock, but I'm allready completely lost. Google gave me a few pages with Bluetooth instructions, but I'm unable to 'translate' this to a way of using USB to communicate. All I want to do is move files back and forth (synchin and modem are of no concern). Can anyone point me in the direction of an app. that allows my box to 'talk' to my P900 (Symbion OS) via the USB port?
Thanks in advance

Hi I have heard that kitchensync, and multisync are possibilities though I have been trying to sort my p900 out on suse for ages still with no luck. and very little time to look into it Think I'm going to get a bluetooth dongle thing and try and do file transfer that way. I know what you mean about sync I would love to be able to use it but if I cant just simple file transfer would do! BTW i found that alonso page on the net and I was left more confused after than before ah well a friend of mine said he would have a look at sorting it out for me soon so if it happens I will try and get him to post it on here.

I'm still using my P900, and just wondered if you ever got it working?

Hi,
Wow, this post is a blast from the past Unfortunately I never got my P900 to work with Linux and I will spare everyone the details of the solution I came up with to get sync to work (it involved a switch of operating systems ). Hope you have better luck, but syncing smartphones is still not a strong suit of Linux, maybe Android will improve this.
Cheers,
