Syncronizing your mobile with Ubuntu

Every time I ask my friends to change to an open sourced operating system like Ubuntu, one of the first reasons I get is Ubuntu doesn ‘t support PC Suite. How can I syncronize my mobile with this? Today I have an answer to all these questions. There is a software called Wammu which is the front-end for gammu engine. Gammu is an amazing package to connect your mobile by various methods like bluetooth, IR and data cable. It can syncronize your contacts, messages, calender and todo list and also lets you to edit, create new and delete entries. Gammu is very powerful but the problem with it is that it can be used only via the terminal. Here Wammu comes into play. Wammu is a front-end for Gammu written in python. Using this, you can transfer files also. It is very much similar to Nokia PC Suite but can support plenty of mobile phones. Being open sourced, it is available for all platforms.
