I'm a couple of months away from replacing my trusty old Nokia N95 8GB phone, and already the "convergence anxiety" is on. That is to say, Dare I dream that I'll be able to find a phone and groupware-suite combo that'll seamlessly sync the PIM data I need?
On my current setup, that dream is only partially realised. I use the native sync app on the N95 (not that there's ever been an alternative on offer that I've seen), syncing with my Gentoo server running horde-3.3.11 and friends. There's no sync of email: a dovecot IMAP/postfix SMTP setup on the server is used by both horde and the phone. Calendar is the only sync component that really works, and that only in server->phone direction reliably. Contacts sync has never played nice: the contacts DB is in openldap, which was originally so Thunderbird could access it, and I wrote my own mapping so horde could also use it but I didn't do a great job there as it usually breaks when trying to save a contact in any of the indirect ways in horde (e.g. saving the From: address to a contact when reading an email in (d)imp) and sync has been a non-starter despite much tinkering.
So, can I hope for better? I'm not married to Horde, although there's plenty I like about it, and I'd happily enough abandon openldap too. I think a good reliable sync of contacts and calendar would be my main criterion in choosing a phone. Nice extras would be files and bookmarks, but these I can probably sort out separately if at all. I'd prefer not to use any non-self-hosted solutions (cloud-based things) but I'm open to it if it guarantees security, costs little/nothing and is reliable. So, does anyone have any working Gentoo+phone setups that actually work for this? I'd love to hear about it, or anything that might be an improvement.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
