    You mentioned Thunderbird. Is there an opensync plugin available for Thunderbird?

    Thanks for pointing that out, i knew i forget something I forgot to add the information about adding the repos for Opensync. Now the how-to should be ok.
    Thanks for the feedback, saltydog.

    There is a Mozilla Sunbird plug-in and as far as i know they operate the same way, so that should work. If you're going to test it, please let us know
    If it won't work, then you have still the possibility to sync it with ScheduleWorld using the SyncML plugin, which will do the same as NinjitsuStylee's method, but much faster, because over USB and your internet connection and not OTA through the BB.
    Actually, i'm pretty sure there has to be a way to sync Evolution with Thunderbird, which would be also a solution. A little bit more effort, but...
    Maybe someone knows a better way?

    Thank you Woitek but maybe something is still missing.

    After multisync installation, I still not have any plugin available in the multisync window....

    Did you set up the multisync software like the article mentions it? You can either do this by using the "Add" button in the multisync GUI or in the CLI:

    Code:
    msynctool --addgroup Blackberry
    msynctool --addmember Blackberry barry-sync
    msynctool --addmember Blackberry evo2-sync
    msynctool --showgroup Blackberry
    and the configure your PIN number:

    Code:
    msynctool --configure Blackberry 1

    Yes, I did.
    But when running

    msynctool --sync blackberry

    I get this error:

    Code:
    ~ $ msynctool --sync blackberry
    Synchronizing group "blackberry" 
    Error while initializing syncengine: (null)

    More, the sunbird-plugin seems to be useful only for the calendar, but I first of all need to synchronize the contacts.

    What's the output when you run this?

    Code:
    msynctool --showgroup Blackberry

    If contact are top priority i would recommend to use the barry plugin and the SyncML plugin with multisync in order to synchronize with ScheduleWorld. Then you can use in Thunderbird for example this plugin
