Help needed to sync Sony Ericsson P910i over USB with Thunderbird & Sunbird


I would like to synchronise my Sony Ericsson mobile's inbox, contacts and calendar with Thunderbird and Sunbird (Mozilla's newish calendar app). Unfortunately I haven't got bluetooth or IR on my PC so I have to connect via the USB cable and base station.

I have successfully got the phone communicating with the PC, and I can use it as a modem (it appears as /dev/ttyUSB0), so basic communication is working.

I have done some searching on the web and there are various posts to indicate that some people have managed to sync the phone over bluetooth using MultiSync, but I've had a look at this app and it doesn't appear to support sync-over-USB.

Can anyone suggest anything?

I'm running Fedora Core 4 with kernel 2.6.13-1.1532_FC4.

Thanks
David Gee

I have a Sony Ericsson 600i (Cingular) w/ similar issues. I want to sync its phone book to my SimplyMEPIS 3.3.2 (soon to be 6.?) box. Any KDE app. would be fine w/ me.

So far, I can access the camera's images over USB, it's trivial -- the phone (& camera) show up just like any USB drive does. I just browse down a couple of dir. levels in Konqueror & copy or delete to my heart's content.

I can just as easily load MP3's for mobile listening.

Unfortunately, I can't find any way to the phone book or calendar.

Even w/ a Zoom USB Bluetooth dongle attached to the computer, I can't get past the basic "I see you" stage.

Last spring I found blog post from Dec '05 (or maybe Jan '06) by someone who got the identical phone to instantly hook up w/ an Ubuntu box (Gnome). I want to know how to it in MEPIS & KDE.


In the past year, have you come on any solutions to your problems or insight into mine?

Welcome to LQ.

Not to be rude, but how can a problem on W2k be the same as one on FC4?

Even if it's the same on the surface, the difference in OS's makes it a different problem.

Have you tried KMobileTools? It is in the recent (ie, F8) repos.

See this article: "Hacking Cell Phones via Bluetooth Tools under Linux"
