Sony Ericsson Z500a

I have a Sony Ericsson Z500a and was wondering if anyone here had ever tried/failed/succeeded in connecting one of these to a linux computer. I'd like to be able to use it on my laptop for internet connectivity via GPRS and be able to backup the phone book on it to my computer. Anyone with any experience or thoughts?
