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, 
through kitchensync.

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 :(
