LG VX8300 and Linux...

I got a new phone via the New-Every-Two-keep-you-trapped-with-Verizon plan recently. Now that my contract has been extended beyond my natural life expectancy, I decided to make the best use of now and sync my address book with my phone.

The LG VX8300 has Bluetooth vCard syncing capabilities via OBEX file transfer. With the help of these two articles, I was able to get vCard, Calendar, wallpaper, and ringtone syncing working nicely in about 45 minutes on my Ubuntu-running Sony VAIO VGN-SZ330P.

So, if you're running Linux and looking for a good phone. This one's a nice one. The LG VX9800 (or "LG the V") should work as well.

I'm just two days into usage of the same model. My only Bluetooth device is my Palm. I've been too busy to look into it yet, but I'm hoping I can do some syncing through it (and maybe some other web).
