The furthest I've got so far is thinking that KMobileTools might help, since
it seems to support the k700i, which is presumably a similar phone, only with
more memory and some other features. I *think* it might be possible to
connect these phones with the official usb adaptor, which seems to work as a
linux-supported USB serial connection, and then talk to it with the OBEX
protocol, which also includes OBEXFTP for transferring files. There is an
upcoming OBEXFS, too, would might allow auto-mounting the phone's filesystem,
and then just syncing with Kontact as if the phone's data is in local files,
But most of this is guesswork so far; I'd love to confirm which k300i-class
phones will actually support this sort of thing, and also that the other
pieces fit together the way I think they do. Details seem really sketchy :(
