    How to sync phone book - Moto RAZR v3

    Well well ... I just got myself a Motorola RAZR V3 phone. It has bluetooth as well as a USB connection. I'd like it to connect to my Ubuntu 6.06 so that I can update phone numbers and other data.

    I checked Moto site and everything costs too much (a phone book app for 29.95?? ). I'm checking out sf.org and found a few but I'm looking for some experience from you guys with tips and what not or some pointers.

    I searched far and wide but MOST of the stuff I found (even on warz sites) are for Windows which I do not currently have.

    TIA ...

    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    Ah, thanks.

    I was hoping to stay away from KDE stuff but what I found most use QT. Like moto4lin package.

    Woot !!!!!

    Got it working with kmobiletools. Pretty nice. I can sync with KDE Address book. I wonder what else is out there for Evolution Addressbook syncing.

    I'm going to try moto4linux package when I have more time.

    One thing I don't understand is, why would you use your computer to make/answer calls while you have a cell phone?? . I can see if it's SMS stuff since it's easier to write on the KB than on the dialpad but ... oh well ...

    I would prefer to do that if I had automated call software. Prior to me getting my kickass job at GE Healthcare, I was burning time at a collections agency, and I must say, if I had to make lots of calls, a computer and a headset would R O C K ! ! !

    Thats one reason. For calling Bob and Jamie to find out what time to meet at the bowling alley would be retarded unless I already had my headset on for gizmo or teamspeak.

    My mobile phone is bluetooth capable. So if I have a bluetooth headset, a mobile phone, then why do I need a computer for? So I don't see the reason why we need a function to dial from my computer through a cell phone. Why can't I type while talking through a wireless earpiece? Why a make/receive call function on kmobiletools make sense? Not to me.

    Try this. Open up Evolution, and select Edit->Synchronization Options... That wil start gnome-pilot, which is gnome's pda sync utility. There is also a panel applet that will let you access these same synchronization options. It's included in the default Gnome and it's called the Piot Applet. See if you can get that baby
    syncing with the V3.

    the phone book is accessed through standard AT commands defined in the 3GPP TS 27.005 spec and mot's is compliant - so any app that adheres to that spec should work.

    Well, I can download the phone book off of Razr.

    But I was expecting along the line of if you have different phone with different phone book, then have phone/email address book such as evolution/kaddressbook/whatever, and the phone book from Razr. I was thinking that I can sync all of them so that I will have only one phonebook across all medium.

    I found that NOT to be the case. I can download the phone book entries from Razr but I can't seem to upload them. May be there are some ways to do it via AT command (I haven't look deeper). Or upload ring tones and/or wallpapers. But nope. I can't upload any of that to the phone. All it does is download the phone book from the Razr and that's it.

    Nope. I can set all the setting and stuff to match kmobiletools's setting but then gnome-pilot expect you to push hot-sync button on your pilot which there is no such thing in Razr.
