Inclusion of a mobile management tool

I definitely agree with Martin,

I just switched phone. Before I used wammu, and I've found it really good,
especially when my phone started to really break down, and it was hard to
write even a simple SMS, as in Wammu you can write it, BUT

Wammu exports and imports only his own formats, and even though you can
convert its backup to vcal/vcard it's really hard to find this info, and my
new phone isn't supported by wammu.

I have the feeling that opensync and its better integration is the right
approach, unfortunately I have found opensyc to be very unreliable for the
moment, or at least the plugins I wanted to use (like Gcal and SynCe for

On the other hand it would be really nice to have proper mobil tools to
synchronize (and backup) calendar, mail and contacts.
