Cell Phone Syncing w/ Your PC or PDA?

Cliff posted more than 12 years ago | from the you'd-hate-to-have-to-reenter-all-those-numbers dept.

Handhelds 108

IPSection asks: "I have been looking for a way to sync my PDA or Outlook to my cell phone (a Panasonic EBTX210). The serial data cable didn't come with any software (of course) and the only commercial solution I see is software called FoneSynch from Paragon Software (Windows only). Is there any free/shareware software for Windows/Linux that allows this functionality? Come on all you cell phone users - don't tell me you type in all of those numbers manually?" We've handled this question in a couple of earlier articles before, however there doesn't seem to be an all-in-one utility that once can use to extract your messages/address-book from your phone (or to allow you to set your phone from your PIM, for example). Many utilities focus on a specific line of phones (like Gnokii, which only works on Nokia phones) and others only work if your phone supports GSM or CPDP. If no all-in-one solution exists, what utilities have you found useful in keeping it all together?

TrollMan 5000 (454685) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255381)

I have a Motorola Timeport, and it came with TrueSync syncing software on CD-ROM. Needless to say, I loaded it immediately.

I wonder if other phones come with similar software in the box?

Re:Syncing Software (1)

Progoth (98669) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255542)

I use readysyncgo [readysyncgo.com] . it syncs palm and outlook (which syncs with my CE device), has some kind of cell phone support (maybe wap or something, I don't have a cell phone), and for linux use it has online pim/calendar/contact etc viewing/editing. it's a free service, it's handy.

Fortunately Virtual PC works, though, so I can use my precious Mac.

Matts (1628) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255385)

Both have infra red. Just enable infra red reception on your phone (mine is at "Menu/Infra Red") send out your address book from your Palm pilot, and point the two at each other.

Seriously this works. It uses vCard IIRC so the format is compatible between the two, and it just works. At least it did between my Nokia 8210 and my Palm V.

Oh, you don't have infra red??? Sorry, maybe someone else will answer :-)

Re:Easy! (1)

jdh28 (19903) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255519)

I do the same with my Nokia 8210 and Psion Revo Plus. The Revo also synchroinises with Outlook on my desktop so I guess there is scope there for synching all 3, but I haven't tried it.

The Revo also worked with an Ericsson T10 with an IR adapter.

For Nokia phones (certain popular models only) there is a great free add-in for Outlook 2000 (or XP) that seamlessly synch's your contacts and calendar entries.

If you are syncing up to outlook, your talking about a windows-only need.
Your PDA might be another thing, but if its outlook you are worried about, then you aren't asking the right question...

Nokia 8290.... (4, Informative)

Nexx (75873) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255390)

My Nokia 8290 can get information off of my Palm III through its IR port. There're a few problems, though. First, only the last name seems to get transferred. Second, it only grabs the first phone number of the address record. Finally, you have to transfer them one at a time (as far as I can tell). It got to be a problem enough that I don't quite use it that often anymore.

You need "gsmtool" for PalmOS (1)

UnixFerEver (221392) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255777)

It will solve all your problems and is fairly easy to use. Only downside is that it is shareware.

If you have infrared.... (3, Informative)

jchristopher (198929) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255395)

If you have an infrared enabled PDA, you can often sync it with your phone using the infrared port.

Quite a few of the GSM phones have built in or add on infrared ports, and there are lots of Palm / PocketPC tools to talk to them using this interface.

Try running a search for "phone" on Palmgear.com [palmgear.com] . You can sync the phone numbers, and also compose ringtones and SMS messages on your PDA then upload them to the phone.

Motorola has problems ... (2)

Midnight Thunder (17205) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255570)

I recently bought myself the Motorola Timeport 250 (Euro model), 3 band phone, only to find that the I-R capability was lousy. Not only is there no way to use the I-R port to beam numbers off, I have never been able to get it to successfully sync with my Handspring Visor or portable computer. A friend of mine has a Nokia phone and this will quite happily transfer phone numbers both ways between it and my Handspring Visor ( didn't try with my portable ). Given this I feel that Motorola still needs to work on its I-R capability.

Given this I am not going to dump my phone, because it still serves its purpose and I can put up with copying numbers by hand, at least for the moment. BTW the European GSM phones tend to look better than those that we get over in N. America and they also tend to be smaller.

Well I've got the same phone and I disagree, you can quite easily beam the numbers off using the simple command line tools distributed with GSMlib, see http://www.pxh.de/fs/gsmlib/ [www.pxh.de] . From there its a simple shell script away from my PalmIII using pilot-link, see http://www.gnu-designs.com/pilot-link/ [gnu-designs.com] . Going in the reverse direction is just as easy.

I've not had any trouble at all using the IR on the phone to talk to either my laptop, Plam or FIR module on my desktop.

A great solution (3, Interesting)

kurowski (11243) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255406)

I've found this awesome way of keeping my cell phone and PDA in sync:
(the poster mentioned something called Outlook, too: what's that?)

Buy your phone. When you call someone, look up their number in your PDA, then save it after dialing them. When someone calls you, save their number from the caller ID record. When someone changes their number, just change it on both the phone and PDA.

I've had both a Palm and a cell phone for about five years, and the above method has worked incredibly well for me, even with many of my friends moving around all the time due to graduating from college, getting laid off, and so on. The point is, 10, 20, even 30 digits of fairly static information just isn't that hard to keep in sync manually.

I've yet to find a good software solution that saves me more time than it wastes through lost data.

TrueSync (2)

duffbeer703 (177751) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255408)

TrueSync software allows you to sync your cellphone with a PDA or a Yahoo calendar/address book account.

TrueSync is a windows program, but you can obviously read yahoo on your Unix box.

Re:TrueSync (1)

ClubStew (113954) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255528)

You can sync other devices with this, too. You can sync many different phones, PDA's, PIMs (Outlook and some others), and Yahoo and / or Excite. It's been a while since I've used it, but they may have added more.

8290 + visor = net connection (2, Informative)

xted (125437) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255409)

Ive been using my nokia 8290 and my visor deluxe to connect to the net for the last few months. I dont need to use a serial cable because the visor and the phone connect via infared. So i can /. on the go or do whatever..

Here is debian.org on my visor [unixfoo.ath.cx] . Im using palmscape for browsing.

if you have a 8290 and a visor deluxe, somebody wrote a guide [umbc.edu] on howto get them to work together.

Re:8290 + visor = net connection (1)

capnkid (87180) | more than 12 years ago | (#2256582)

Just curious about that Debian scrrenshot: on my palm VIIx, the infrared port is on the top of the palm, not the side...

Is the infrared port on the side of the visor?

If there is one fact that seems to be clear in this discussion, Nokia phones rock.

Re:8290 + visor = net connection (1)

yesthatguy (69509) | more than 12 years ago | (#2256897)

Yeah, the IR ports on all Visors that I've seen (I haven't seen an edge, and I don't know whether it's still there) are on the left side.

And while you're at it, turn your palm into a mobile POP-talking email client totally indepent of your desktop. Get "Top Gun Postman" by Ian Goldberg, which is a small freeware system utility enabling you to query your POP mail server while using the internal palm mail application for browsing. My palmIII couldn't do that out of the box (at least I didn't figure out how :) ).

Because your internal gsm modem won't make more than 9600 (unless you got GPRS) it would be useful to use a separate email. I filter the inbox on my "main" account and forward all mails from a specified sender (VIP, boss...) to that "cellphone" mail account (after truncating it of possible attachments). Adds some pretty nifty features to this palmIII-nokia8210 combo.

Re:8290 + visor = net connection (1)

xted (125437) | more than 12 years ago | (#2257630)

There are alot of PalmOS applications that you will find on the net that will turn your palm/visor into a little workstation.

lftp [palmgear.com] - Ftp client for the palm.
Torpedo [palmgear.com] - html editor (use lftp to upload these pages)
mMail [palmgear.com] - the best pop3 email client for the palm
ptelnet [palmgear.com] - telnet client
PalmIRC [palmgear.com] - Palm irc client
TopGun ssh [offshore.com.ai] - ssh client
Palm httpd [umich.edu] - httpd for palm

There is a large number of palm apps at http://palmgear.com if you are in search of some.

Visorcentral.com has alot of good info regarding handspring visors.

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2255414)

Hey there,

Well I use something called truesync which is made by startfish software. It can sync between applications/phones/pda's/web sites. Unfortunately I believe it's only for windows.

But Outlook, Yahoo and my Palm are all in Sync which is really cool. If I add anything be it Task, Note, Address, Calendar Appointment on either of these it will sync with the others. The sync to yahoo is very useful sometimes you forget your PDA but you can still get at your information.

Nokia 6210 & palm (1)

OzeBuddha (459435) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255444)

After looking for ages for a shareware solution, i discovered that nokia released their own software (Nokia Mobile Internet kit) that i got online in OZ from dick smith for around A$60 - thats $30 for u americans - it is just software that you install via hotsync to your palm & it lets me mail, sms & surf the web from my palmIII via an infrared connection with a (Nokia of course) 6210 or 7110 (not sure what other models are supported - prolly 8810 is) - it is a lot better than trying to surf on a mobile phone screen via WAP and it does work on some non-infrared phones by buying a cable.
I got this a while ago when it was first released here so ive forgotten the exact details but all you need to know is up on the nokia web site www.nokia.com [nokia.com]

Hope this helps - btw: it is a pain trying to type out mail on the palm, and it can make for a costly mobile phone bill as this connection is only 9600 bps & it can take a while if some1 has sent u mail with a large attachment

Re:Nokia 6210 & palm (1)

agfish (188140) | more than 12 years ago | (#2257740)

The 6210 will give you 14.4 if you're on a service provider which supports dual line data (like Orange in the UK). It's still pretty crappy but it'll do until Nokia gets GPRS working. (Don't go for a Motorola Ti260, trust me)

alas, wrong way to proceed (2, Insightful)

lfourrier (209630) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255447)

you look for the pdas and the phones documentations, then you buy the right combination.

I enjoyed some time Revo + S25 (siemens).
The S25 is one of the 4 model specially validated to work with the revo (with a motorola and 2 nokia).

Perhaps it's too much an european solution for you, but it had good Outlook sync for the Revo, and IR sync of phone number with phone.

Now, I broke the screen of the revo, reverted to palm, and want to change my phone (the battery begin to be old, and the phone stay on only 3 days;).

Further more, I don't know if choosinbg some psion pda is a good bet on the future.

It depends of your usage, and of your previsible usage, but I consider a phone is kept max 2 years, and a pda max 3 years. So, choose today some PDA you want to still have when you change phone, and then, choose a compatible phone.

mobile.box.sk [mobile.box.sk] is as good a place as any to grab phone 'warez' and there are lots of fone sites but there are only so many ringtones you can take.

One for the Nokia crowd (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2255466)

I (as a poster above) also use Nomad. However, I think (as also mentioned) it is Nokia only. However, I find it very useful as there is no "export to csv, then back to vcard then plug your phone in your nose etc". You just install it and you're away direct from Outlook.

Especially good as it uses extended phone memory so you get email and multi-number.

Don't think they have a Linux on non-Nokia version.

My recommendation? Buy an 8210 (great phone) and re-format your hard-drive and install Win2K :)

Download TrueSync... (1)

Scaba (183684) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255468)

Get the TrueSync Installer here [starfish.com] . I'm using it to sync a Handspring, Yahoo!, the Palm Desktop, Lotus Notes and Outlook 2000 all at once, and there are modules for about a dozen or more phones you can install.

Kyocera phone and palm (2)

agentZ (210674) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255474)

I use a Kyocera Smartphone [kyocera-wireless.com] combination cell phone and palm pilot, and love it. I only carry one device instead of two, and can use all of the Palm tools (e.g. jpilot [jpilot.org] and the like) to edit the data for both the phone and the palm.

Re:Kyocera phone and palm (1)

netrc (264123) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255899)

I also have the Kyocera 6035. It's fantastic (could be slightly smaller). Good screen; voice memo; web browser / internet enabled. And all the other goodies that palm software can provide.

Use kermit (4, Redundant)

JeffL (5070) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255484)

I was looking around for something to allow me to manage the phone book in my Ericsson R280L. I tried Kandy [kde.org] , part of KDE, but it didn't work well enough to do what I wanted. I finally just converted my address book from my palm into text, copied the numbers I wanted into emacs and created a list that looks like:

at+cpbw=11,"18002224357",,"AAANational"

at+cpbw=12,"18882583741",,"AmericanExpress"

I connected to the phone with kermit and made sure it was ready to talk, and then ran something like

foreach i (`cat phonenumberlist`)

echo $i > /dev/ttyS0
sleep 1
end
The sleep 1 is important, because the phone couldn't take entries any faster. A friends Motorolla could connect over IR, but it needed sleep 5 after each entry.

Managing my phone list with emacs, sed, awk, and sort turned out to be much simpler than doing it with some click happy windows program I tried. I think it was TrueSync, or something that I got from Yahoo to synch my palm with Yahoo calendar. It claimed to be able to sync to my phone, but it only had two modes of operation, do nothing, and erase all numbers in the phone.

Re:Use kermit (1)

jellybear (96058) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255526)

Cool! How did you figure out the syntax? I want to do something similar.

Re:Use kermit (2)

JeffL (5070) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255664)

I used this manual [ericsson.se] for an Ericsson R320AT GSM phone. My phone certainly isn't a GSM phone, but the address book commands seem to work.

The commands also worked on my friend's Motorolla, which is a GSM phone. On that one, we needed to send an AT+CPBS="ME" to tell the phone to use the numbers stored in the phone, as opposed to those stored in the sim card.

BTW, I had to run unix2dos on the phonebooklist file in my previous message, because the phone expects lines to be terminated with a CRLF, instead of the Unix LF only.

For my samsung phone, I wrote a perl script that tried about 500,000 ATXXXXX commands and kept track of which ones didn't return "ERROR" :)

I used "strings" on some windows binaries to find good starting places of AT strings to try on the phone. (i.e. ATPAAA throught ATPZZZ, etc.).

Romeo and Juliet, Act I, Scene 1 (-1, Offtopic)

Karma Sink (229208) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255501)

ACT I

PROLOGUE

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whole misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

SCENE I. Verona. A public place.

Enter SAMPSON and GREGORY, of the house of Capulet, armed with swords and bucklers

SAMPSON

Gregory, o' my word, we'll not carry coals.

GREGORY

No, for then we should be colliers.

SAMPSON

I mean, an we be in choler, we'll draw.

GREGORY

Ay, while you live, draw your neck out o' the collar.

SAMPSON

I strike quickly, being moved.

GREGORY

But thou art not quickly moved to strike.

SAMPSON

A dog of the house of Montague moves me.

GREGORY

To move is to stir; and to be valiant is to stand:
therefore, if thou art moved, thou runn'st away.

SAMPSON

A dog of that house shall move me to stand: I will
take the wall of any man or maid of Montague's.

GREGORY

That shows thee a weak slave; for the weakest goes
to the wall.

SAMPSON

True; and therefore women, being the weaker vessels,
are ever thrust to the wall: therefore I will push
Montague's men from the wall, and thrust his maids
to the wall.

GREGORY

The quarrel is between our masters and us their men.

SAMPSON

'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when I
have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the
maids, and cut off their heads.

GREGORY

The heads of the maids?

SAMPSON

Ay, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads;
take it in what sense thou wilt.

GREGORY

They must take it in sense that feel it.

SAMPSON

Me they shall feel while I am able to stand: and
'tis known I am a pretty piece of flesh.

GREGORY

'Tis well thou art not fish; if thou hadst, thou
hadst been poor John. Draw thy tool! here comes
two of the house of the Montagues.

SAMPSON

My naked weapon is out: quarrel, I will back thee.

GREGORY

How! turn thy back and run?

SAMPSON

Fear me not.

GREGORY

No, marry; I fear thee!

SAMPSON

Let us take the law of our sides; let them begin.

GREGORY

I will frown as I pass by, and let them take it as
they list.

SAMPSON

Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them;
which is a disgrace to them, if they bear it.

Enter ABRAHAM and BALTHASAR

ABRAHAM

Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?

SAMPSON

I do bite my thumb, sir.

ABRAHAM

Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?

SAMPSON

[Aside to GREGORY] Is the law of our side, if I say
ay?

GREGORY

No.

SAMPSON

No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I
bite my thumb, sir.

GREGORY

Do you quarrel, sir?

ABRAHAM

Quarrel sir! no, sir.

SAMPSON

If you do, sir, I am for you: I serve as good a man as you.

ABRAHAM

No better.

SAMPSON

Well, sir.

GREGORY

Say 'better:' here comes one of my master's kinsmen.

SAMPSON

Yes, better, sir.

ABRAHAM

You lie.

SAMPSON

Draw, if you be men. Gregory, remember thy swashing blow.

They fight

Enter BENVOLIO

BENVOLIO

Part, fools!
Put up your swords; you know not what you do.

Beats down their swords

Enter TYBALT

TYBALT

What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds?
Turn thee, Benvolio, look upon thy death.

BENVOLIO

I do but keep the peace: put up thy sword,
Or manage it to part these men with me.

TYBALT

What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word,
As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee:
Have at thee, coward!

They fight

Enter, several of both houses, who join the fray; then enter Citizens, with clubs

First Citizen

Clubs, bills, and partisans! strike! beat them down!
Down with the Capulets! down with the Montagues!

Enter CAPULET in his gown, and LADY CAPULET

CAPULET

What noise is this? Give me my long sword, ho!

LADY CAPULET

A crutch, a crutch! why call you for a sword?

CAPULET

My sword, I say! Old Montague is come,
And flourishes his blade in spite of me.

Enter MONTAGUE and LADY MONTAGUE

MONTAGUE

Thou villain Capulet,--Hold me not, let me go.

LADY MONTAGUE

Thou shalt not stir a foot to seek a foe.

Enter PRINCE, with Attendants

PRINCE

Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace,
Profaners of this neighbour-stained steel,--
Will they not hear? What, ho! you men, you beasts,
That quench the fire of your pernicious rage
With purple fountains issuing from your veins,
On pain of torture, from those bloody hands
Throw your mistemper'd weapons to the ground,
And hear the sentence of your moved prince.
Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word,
By thee, old Capulet, and Montague,
Have thrice disturb'd the quiet of our streets,
And made Verona's ancient citizens
Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments,
To wield old partisans, in hands as old,
Canker'd with peace, to part your canker'd hate:
If ever you disturb our streets again,
Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
For this time, all the rest depart away:
You Capulet; shall go along with me:
And, Montague, come you this afternoon,
To know our further pleasure in this case,
To old Free-town, our common judgment-place.
Once more, on pain of death, all men depart.

Exeunt all but MONTAGUE, LADY MONTAGUE, and BENVOLIO

MONTAGUE

Who set this ancient quarrel new abroach?
Speak, nephew, were you by when it began?

BENVOLIO

Here were the servants of your adversary,
And yours, close fighting ere I did approach:
I drew to part them: in the instant came
The fiery Tybalt, with his sword prepared,
Which, as he breathed defiance to my ears,
He swung about his head and cut the winds,
Who nothing hurt withal hiss'd him in scorn:
While we were interchanging thrusts and blows,
Came more and more and fought on part and part,
Till the prince came, who parted either part.

LADY MONTAGUE

O, where is Romeo? saw you him to-day?
Right glad I am he was not at this fray.

BENVOLIO

Madam, an hour before the worshipp'd sun
Peer'd forth the golden window of the east,
A troubled mind drave me to walk abroad;
Where, underneath the grove of sycamore
That westward rooteth from the city's side,
So early walking did I see your son:
Towards him I made, but he was ware of me
And stole into the covert of the wood:
I, measuring his affections by my own,
That most are busied when they're most alone,
Pursued my humour not pursuing his,
And gladly shunn'd who gladly fled from me.

MONTAGUE

Many a morning hath he there been seen,
With tears augmenting the fresh morning dew.
Adding to clouds more clouds with his deep sighs;
But all so soon as the all-cheering sun
Should in the furthest east begin to draw
The shady curtains from Aurora's bed,
Away from the light steals home my heavy son,
And private in his chamber pens himself,
Shuts up his windows, locks far daylight out
And makes himself an artificial night:
Black and portentous must this humour prove,
Unless good counsel may the cause remove.

BENVOLIO

My noble uncle, do you know the cause?

MONTAGUE

I neither know it nor can learn of him.

BENVOLIO

Have you importuned him by any means?

MONTAGUE

Both by myself and many other friends:
But he, his own affections' counsellor,
Is to himself--I will not say how true--
But to himself so secret and so close,
So far from sounding and discovery,
As is the bud bit with an envious worm,
Ere he can spread his sweet leaves to the air,
Or dedicate his beauty to the sun.
Could we but learn from whence his sorrows grow.
We would as willingly give cure as know.

Enter ROMEO

BENVOLIO

See, where he comes: so please you, step aside;
I'll know his grievance, or be much denied.

MONTAGUE

I would thou wert so happy by thy stay,
To hear true shrift. Come, madam, let's away.

Exeunt MONTAGUE and LADY MONTAGUE

BENVOLIO

Good-morrow, cousin.

ROMEO

Is the day so young?

BENVOLIO

But new struck nine.

ROMEO

Ay me! sad hours seem long.
Was that my father that went hence so fast?

BENVOLIO

It was. What sadness lengthens Romeo's hours?

ROMEO

Not having that, which, having, makes them short.

BENVOLIO

In love?

ROMEO

Out--

BENVOLIO

Of love?

ROMEO

Out of her favour, where I am in love.

BENVOLIO

Alas, that love, so gentle in his view,
Should be so tyrannous and rough in proof!

ROMEO

Alas, that love, whose view is muffled still,
Should, without eyes, see pathways to his will!
Where shall we dine? O me! What fray was here?
Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all.
Here's much to do with hate, but more with love.
Why, then, O brawling love! O loving hate!
O any thing, of nothing first create!
O heavy lightness! serious vanity!
Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms!
Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire,
sick health!
Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.
Dost thou not laugh?

BENVOLIO

No, coz, I rather weep.

ROMEO

Good heart, at what?

BENVOLIO

At thy good heart's oppression.

ROMEO

Why, such is love's transgression.
Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,
Which thou wilt propagate, to have it prest
With more of thine: this love that thou hast shown
Doth add more grief to too much of mine own.
Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;
Being vex'd a sea nourish'd with lovers' tears:
What is it else? a madness most discreet,
A choking gall and a preserving sweet.
Farewell, my coz.

BENVOLIO

Soft! I will go along;
An if you leave me so, you do me wrong.

ROMEO

Tut, I have lost myself; I am not here;
This is not Romeo, he's some other where.

BENVOLIO

Tell me in sadness, who is that you love.

ROMEO

What, shall I groan and tell thee?

BENVOLIO

Groan! why, no.
But sadly tell me who.

ROMEO

Bid a sick man in sadness make his will:
Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill!
In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.

BENVOLIO

I aim'd so near, when I supposed you loved.

ROMEO

A right good mark-man! And she's fair I love.

BENVOLIO

A right fair mark, fair coz, is soonest hit.

ROMEO

Well, in that hit you miss: she'll not be hit
With Cupid's arrow; she hath Dian's wit;
And, in strong proof of chastity well arm'd,
From love's weak childish bow she lives unharm'd.
She will not stay the siege of loving terms,
Nor bide the encounter of assailing eyes,
Nor ope her lap to saint-seducing gold:
O, she is rich in beauty, only poor,
That when she dies with beauty dies her store.

BENVOLIO

Then she hath sworn that she will still live chaste?

ROMEO

She hath, and in that sparing makes huge waste,
For beauty starved with her severity
Cuts beauty off from all posterity.
She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair,
To merit bliss by making me despair:
She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow
Do I live dead that live to tell it now.

BENVOLIO

Be ruled by me, forget to think of her.

ROMEO

O, teach me how I should forget to think.

BENVOLIO

By giving liberty unto thine eyes;
Examine other beauties.

ROMEO

'Tis the way
To call hers exquisite, in question more:
These happy masks that kiss fair ladies' brows
Being black put us in mind they hide the fair;
He that is strucken blind cannot forget
The precious treasure of his eyesight lost:
Show me a mistress that is passing fair,
What doth her beauty serve, but as a note
Where I may read who pass'd that passing fair?
Farewell: thou canst not teach me to forget.

BENVOLIO

I'll pay that doctrine, or else die in debt.

Syncing Visor with GSM (1)

Jacco de Leeuw (4646) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255507)

I sync my Siemens M35i phonebook with the phonebook in my Handspring Visor. I use GSMtool [gsmtool.com] . Works great. With it you can send SMS from your PDA as well.

I do not use Infrared since those phones are more expensive. Besides, I don't like them that much because you have to put both devices at a certain distance. The Visor has its IR LED on the left side so that makes it more difficult to point to a phone which typically has its LED at the top.

So I bought a serial (or rather TTL level) cable from Ubishop [ubishop.de] . With it I can hookup the Visor to the Siemens and leave the Siemens in my coat's pocket.

Last week I did a Modem Sync to my home PC using the cellphone's modem. I intend to buy a CompactFlash card for backups. It needs a driver (not present in the Visor's ROM) so after a crash I just have to Modem Sync the driver program (20 KB) and then restore the backup from flash.

TrueSync (2)

interiot (50685) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255508)

TrueSync software works with many [starfish.com] different devices and programs:

  • Outlook (and 5 other desktop organinizers)
  • Motorola, Ericsson, and Nokia phones
  • Palm OS PDAs, Wince devices, SyncML-enabled devices, and several others
  • Yahoo's PIM website, Excite@Home's PIM website (however long that's gonna stick around), etc...

Standards - vCard, vCal (2, Interesting)

psleonar (99125) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255513)

My Ericsson T39 [ericsson.com] sends and recieves names with nary a problem from Palms (and Handsprings, Clies, etc) over IrDA.

The key improvement they made over previous phones seems to be implementing vCard [imc.org] standard for contacts - every name on my phone can have up to four numbers assigned, as well as an email address and postal address.

vCard (and the successor iCard) allows some intelligence when sending data between different systems - rather than relying on hard-coded rules such as "take the first number only," it can extract all X numbers when the receiving system supports them, or only the most important number. For example, you may decide that the home phone number is the "primary" way to reach a contact, and set that as the one which should be transferred to a system which only supports one number.

FWIW, the T39 also comes with a really slick calendar. The calendar uses the vCal standard, so depending on how obscure the transport protocol is, it should be pretty easy for someone to grab the data from the phone via serial/IR/BlueTooth and sync it with a Linux app which supports vCard/vCal.

question too general (1)

enemenemuh (472589) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255515)

There are too many different companies selling different cell phones for different countries to have a general solution.

First point:
Synchronisation should always work with Infrared (for your convenience) so the cell phone should have Infrared.
Of the big cell phone companies that I know, Nokia and Siemens include Infrared with most of their new models. And the top models also come with a cd-rom to manage your cell phone phonebook from your pc and synchronize it with Outlook, Lotus Notes,etc...
Unfortunately, the software is (afaik for Siemens and Nokia) only for Windows. There also exists tons of shareware and freeware for Windows and cell phones (again regarding to Siemens and Nokia).
Synchronizing with your palm should not be a problem, either, if you have Infrared (on the phone). There is some good palm software to manage that.

My suggestion: Buy a new phone ;-)

Palm based phone (2)

pyros (61399) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255516)

Just wait a month and get samsung's [samsungusa.com] I300 palm phone, then you won't need to sync your phone & pda because they'll be the same, and since it's palm, it will sync with linux. Kyocera [kyocera.com] also has a palm phone which is dual mode (the samsung is PCS only).

Out of luck at the moment (4, Informative)

barnaclebarnes (85340) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255517)

The reason why there is no size fits all solution is that all phones support different standards. You have to find the best fit for your particular phone (if one even exists). The situation will get better in the next year or 2 when all phones will start supporting syncML which is a standard for syncing data (Calender (vCal) and address book (vCard) info only at the moment).

So you first need to look for a product that will either sync Outlook -> Phone or Palm -> Phone and another product that supports Palm -> Outlook. So lets look at these one by one...

Outlook -> Phone: I think there are a couple of options here. All products at the moment sync via a serail cradle or IR port. Look on the web for your phone and sync software, i'm sure you find something.

Palm -> Phone: Again a couple of options but it depends on your phone, note my experience with this software has been a little flaky. Make sure you have a backup of your palm first as you could end up with a bunch of dups. I tend not to use this software but just beam contacts to my phone aas I need them (I have a Nokia 7110 which supports multiple phone numbers per entry). The problem is getting those drunken 'girl at bar' numbers back to my PDA, I end up just trping them in the next morning if can remeber her name... ;)

Palm -> Outlook: Well all PDA's seem to sync with outlook out of the box but if you want some decent software the go with some like Intellisync (plug, plug...) It offers better conflict resolution, filtering and more advanced features.

Those are your options right now. In the next year or 2 you will have true multi point sync up to a central web store where you can keep all devices in sync, filtered, conflicts resolved and applications on whatever device you happen to be carrying....but thats still a couple of years off before it gets really useful.

...they have support for A TON of phones, just not the one I use . You sync your PDAs, Cells, and PCs all to the internet. I sync my contacts, calandar, e-mail, bookmarks, etc...really good service.

They have a good security policy (stored encrypted, etc, etc...lot of good work there IMO) to boot...but, being a MSFT partner, I doubt they have support for much else. Great for us corporate whores though.

A roundabout way for samsung... "SAMBRU" (2)

Booker (6173) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255547)

My silly little perl script, "SAMBRU [dyndns.org] " (SAMsung Backup and Restore Utility) can pull data out of a samsung 6100/8500 Sprint PCS phone, and save it in vcard format, which can then be read into gnome-card, which can then be exported to your Pilot... I always wanted to write a palm app to do it directly, never got around to it.

Fusion One (http://www.fusionone.com) works very well and was free. I you had an account, they grandfathered access, but are not accepting new registrations. I believe that they are trying to have OEM resale of the service. I use it to sync a Nokia 61xx and a Samsung 85xx with Outlook 2k.

VisorPhone (2, Informative)

dchamp (89216) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255581)

Handspring [handspring.com] is clearing out their VisorPhones... you can buy one (with a service plan) for $49. Or you get one FREE if you buy a new Visor.


If you've never seen one, it's a Springboard module that plugs into the back of a Handspring Visor (Palm Pilot clone), turning it into a GSM cell phone.


I got one last week. It's pretty nifty to be able to dial any phone # out of my visor address book. I haven't tried the wireless browser yet... but you can surf the web, even run a SSH on it from anywhere you can get your PCS signal.

It's the best thing I've seen so far in this category...it's a monthly pay service, but is far better put together than most products of its type. It supports phones, PDAs, PCs, and even provides you a web desktop to all that information.

Put your SIM card in your floppy disk drive (2, Interesting)

English Guy (85960) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255623)

I've used Phonefile [pipistrel.com] and it works really well. You take the SIM card out of your phone, put it in a floppy disk type thing and bung it into your disk drive.

Works a treat on Windoze. Not sure about Linux support though.

Oh, and it's not free but it means you won't have to worry if you change your phone / PDA / underpants

Any Mac software? (2)

Along the same lines, has anybody ever seen software that will sync a cellphone to a Mac? It will definitely influence my next cellphone purchase.

FusionOne will supposedly support the Mac (not sure about OS X) in the future.

Meanwhile, your best bet may be to sync phone -> Palm, then Palm -> Mac.

Dr. Dobbs has a good article on this (1)

millz (127712) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255684)

If you're interesting in looking at some java source that hooks outlook to a Nokia phone, check out this month's issue of Dr. Dobb's Journal (http://www.ddj.com). Starting on page 73 of the Sept 2001 issue, the article lays out the entire design of the system. Depends on some outlook components though...so windows only. Here's the source: http://www.ddj.com/ftp/2001/2001_09/mphones.txt

It's a nice read, even if it's not THAT helpful.

PDA + phone (1)

Devlin-du-GEnie (512506) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255750)

Why not combine your cell phone and PDA in one convenient package? I got tired of toting around all the bits and pieces for both and got a Visorphone. It integrates it all painlessly.

Even that will be trailing edge tech by Xmas. Look for all the major players to come out with some spiffy, new combination PDA/phones with a good form factor.

phluxoahu (191045) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255794)

I have been using FusionOne's PhoneSync to sync all my contacts into my Palm and my Nokia 6185.. their software seems to work with a heck of a lot of phones out there, unfortunately they stopped offering their service to joe consumer and are now doing wholesale to wireless carriers...

It still does...even for consumers (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2256083)

It still works...and it' still free if you're only doing contacts (what you want for a phone) and calandar...you have to pay for bookmarks, e-mail, etc.

They might be selling service to phone companies...but they are definately still alive in the consumer market.

Big Yak (441903) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255814)

Check out TrueSync Plus.



I use Excite as my portal, and when you click on the "My Reminders" title, it will take you to an online calendar/contacts list. Search around, and there's a link to TrueSync there.



TrueSync will also synch with my Outlook, my Palm, my iPaq and my Motorola Timeport cell phone. Now, I update one, and everything's immediately updated (also great for synching my work and home calendars with my iPaq).

Lose the PDA and the Phone, Combine them into 1 (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2255895)

Have a look at this phone [sprintpcs.com] from Sprint.

Thats a Palm V or Palm VII AND a phone. You don't have to wait to get it, its available NOW.

I've read recently that they have a color unit that will be available soon, but if you need it now, and don't want your BF number too high (Batman factor [tuxedo.org] ) then this is the ticket.

All GSM phones speak Hayes AT over IR or RS232. (2, Insightful)

LqdSlpStrm (464344) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255898)

All your good old GSM cell phones speaks a rather hefty AT command set. The modem manual for the R320 (early wap phone) at Ericsson's developer area is over 300 pages long. You can basically explore the phone's entire funtionality through the command set.

Connect to your phone through a terminal emulator using either the IR COM port or a serial cable and COM1. Do the AT dance.

BTW:
You can shorten your connect time for a PPP based GSM data channel from 30 to 15 seconds by using an ISDN modem. This will not improve your bandwidth, only shorten the link setup time.
Do
AT+CBST=71,0,1
before you dial your ISDN modem.
Some networks can only hook up to an ISDN modem that is set to the older V1.10 standard. Check your local manual.
The time from ATDxxx to CONNECT is usually 4 seconds. The rest of the connect time is PPP negotiation stuff.

For what it's worth.

I use a Psion 5MX & an Ericsson I888 (2, Informative)

biglig2 (89374) | more than 12 years ago | (#2255943)

Now, in fact I don't really sync them as I only keep a few numbers on my phone, and mostly use the psion to dial a land line.

But, there is great software called PhoneManPro [sgsoftware.com] that you can use to manipulate the phone from the Psion. Not only can you edit the phone book, (or import from CSV etc) but it also lets you send SMS messages, edit the ringtones, etc. all of which is about 2000% easier with a Psion 5 keyboard!

Linux and gsmlib (3, Informative)

PatJensen (170806) | more than 12 years ago | (#2256032)

Under Linux, you can use the gsmlib package. It includes synchronization, messaging, communication and debugging tools and is quite mature. It has support for almost every GSM phone that has serial or infrared capabilities.

From freshmeat:
GSMLIB is a library to access GSM mobile phones through GSM modems. Features include: modification of phonebooks stored in the mobile phone or on the SIM card, reading and writing of SMS messages stored in the mobile phone, sending and reception of SMS messages.

Get it at http://freshmeat.net/projects/gsmlib/ [freshmeat.net] .

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2256244)

I own the same phone and ran into the same problems. I scoured the internet trying to find some info on the firmware for the cellphone, as I'm sure I could throw a GUI together for it if I had the specs.

Alas, I couldn't, so I gave up.

If anyone knows where the specs for the serial interface to the phone can be located (short of going to panasonic, if they'd even consider it), please post a link.

Furthermore, here in Canada, although the phone recieve SMS, the people at Rogers-AT&T told me that the infrastructure was such that the phone couldn't be used as a modem between a ISP and a laptop/PDA etc. I don't really buy that, I'm sure there's ways around it, but again without documentation I'm stuck!!

Again, please post docs if you can find em!

Thanks,

um, dunno if it has a version on *nix, but it syncs my Motorola Startac with my Sony Clie and my Outlook/Exchange. Also can sync a variety of other devices as well... runs through serial, IR, or USB.

Nextel (1)

schotty (519567) | more than 12 years ago | (#2256403)

Nextels are about the easiest I have run into. CSV format. Outlook and most other contact books I have run across allow exporting to CSV format. Then you just upload it to the special spot on the website and WHOLLA! In your phones contacts. Requires web access service on the phone though.

Have you tried FusionOne? (1)

Figaro (20471) | more than 12 years ago | (#2256740)

They've got an awesome service (Win only, unfortuately) that allows you to sync just about anything (bookmarks, files, contacts, datebook) between any number of devices (including phones, PDA's, PIM Software, and their Web Desktop product).

Motorola Timeport + Outlook + Sony Clie (Palm) (2, Informative)

isa-kuruption (317695) | more than 12 years ago | (#2257187)

I have all 3. With the Timeport came with software called 'truesync' which actually allows me to sync all three. The timeport and clie connect up through usb (actually, timeport is serial w/ serial-to-usb converter). I then just hit the sync button and it all syncs up. Pretty nifty.

This is a feature I've always wanted... it's pure convenience. Sadly, though, it doesn't work under anything not windows... especially since the Clie doesn't have linux usb support quite yet. In any case, though, this is the best solution to the business traveler who needs to have numbers handy no matter what device (s)he has in front of him/her.

Smart Messaging (5, Informative)

lizrd (69275) | more than 12 years ago | (#2257381)

If your phone supports smart messaging (Most newer ones do) you may be able to make some use of that. Smart Messaging was developed by Nokia, but it's being used by other phone makers as well. Guessing from the fact that you have a Panasonic EBTX210 phone you probably have service from some flavor of AT&T so you should be able to order text messaging service which you will need to take advantage of this.

The exact formats of different messages can be found in the document stdma_sm.pdf which you can download from the nokia smart messaging page [nokia.com] . To actually download anything you need to give them an e-mail address and click on a disclaimer, so I can't link directly to the file. There are also a lot of other very good documents on that page.

For the purpose of providing some sort of answer to your question, the thing that you are most likely to want to do is send names and numbers from your PC to your phone. The format used is basically equivalent to vCard with ASCII armor and some extra headers. Your business card messages will start with the header segment
//SCKLwwww23F4xxyyzz
where //SCKL signals the beginning of Smart Messaging data, wwww signals the origination port (doesn't matter what you use as long as it's a 4 digit hex number and it's the same for all parts of your message), 23F4 is the port on which the vCard receiver listens, xx is a reference number which must be common to all parts of your message, yy is the total number of parts in the message and zz is the sequence number.

As an example we'll say that you want to send to your phone a number for somone named AAA whose number is 1234567890. The vCard will look like this:
BEGIN:VCARD
N:AAA
TEL:1234567890
END:VCARD

This has to be converted to ASCIIhex to be sent to the phone, to the vCard data turns into:
424547494E3A56434152440D0A4E3A4141410D0A54454C3A31 3233343536373839300D0A454E443A56434152440D0A
Now we can split this into two separate SMS messages so that it can be sent to the phone. They're going to look like this:
//SCKL23F423F4990201 424547494E3A56434152440D0A4E3A4141410D0A54454C3A31
//SCKL23F423F4990202 3233343536373839300D0A454E443A56434152440D0A

Given this information it should be pretty trivial to write an application which sends this data to your phone's e-mail address, but I have yet to see a decent one for either Windows or Linux. Maybe I'll write one later if I get to feeling bored.

In other nifty fun with SMS you might want to look at the shell script [binhost.com] I wrote which sends the subject and from lines of incoming e-mail to your phone via a web to SMS gateway.

I'm not sure how well I've answered the poster's question, but I hope that I've added a little bit of information that someone finds interesting.

However, Nokia 6210 is a Euro model, which you can not get in the US. So pack your shit in a showbox and move to Europe!
