Symbian phone, kontact sync.


Is there any tool to synchronise the address book in a symbian series 60 phone with the address book in kontact? In windows, nokia pc suite does that with outlook.
Or still better is there an alternative for nokia pc suite in linux?

There could be a way to synchronize your Symbian with Kontact. I have my Handspring visor sync with Kontact. I needed only drivers for it. So if all else fails, check the kernel for the modules. Also, how do you connect your phone to the PC? IR, serial, USB?

I use bluetooth(kde-bluetooth) to connect my phone to the pc. Kontact(as far as i know)only supports PDAs directly(through kpilot). Is there any other way?
Thanks
P.S.: (Everything else w.r.t bluetooth works fine.)

Evolution supports Bluetooth, maybe give that a go? It's a GNOME app though, you might be one of those anti-GTK people I had another idea but I just forgot it... Have you had alook at gnokii? I haven't used it since I don't own a Nokia (SonyEricsson all the way!!! ) but it might have something along those lines.

Yup, here's a guide for my phone with Evolution but it should be pretty self-explainatory
