    Phone manager for android

    Do we have any Ubuntu supported Phone manager for android devises ? As android is not as closed system as its competitors i would expect some more applications to come up. But checking on the manufacturer's websites i do not find any one of them providing phone manager like application for Linux. In such a case what options do we Linux users have ? I am not talking abt wammu and gammu kind of applications as they are still not comparable to any phone manager provided by the manufacturer. Another way is to run them through Wine / Virtual Box. In that case also, they do not give optimum result. So do we have any one who has some experience with this ?

    I got my huawei software to work in wine. But it can't see my phone when using the USB connection. So I have to use the wifi option. There are no difference, I have access to all features.

    Ubuntu can see phone when I use the memory card option, it will then be mounted. But wine can't access it.

    So that means there is no application for Linux.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "phone manager", and the phone that you are using.

    1. What version of Ubuntu are you running.
    2. What phone are you trying to manage, and what version of Android does it have?
    3. What are you looking for this application to do? Manage music, photo, etc?

    I wish to do all that phone managers available with the phone can do. Not just music and photo transfer. That does not needs any phone manager. I am not talking abt any phone in perticular but android phones in general.

    1. What version of Ubuntu are you running.
    I am using 12.04 but that is not important because what ever version of ubuntu or any other linux that can do this well can be installed in any other partition for this work

    2. What phone are you trying to manage, and what version of Android does it have?
    Huawei or Samsung with Android 4.0 +

    3. What are you looking for this application to do? Manage music, photo, etc?
    SMS, contacts and other similar content manager (backup) in csv or similar format.

    Hi

    Suggest you try Airdroid. Its an android app in the playstore which has a browser based PC interface and works on all platforms.

    Should do what you need (as long as you have a wireless network)
