OT: contact-management hell (iPhone how-to)

I have various Palm devices for years, and have used Jpilot on Linux. My
Blackberry can be backed up on Linux using Barry.  Most of the Palm
devices I used required some minor tweaking on Linux, but the pilot
libraries tended to be reasonably good. I don't recall a major sync
screwup. I do sync my Blackberry at work, and I can sync with Google
Calendar, but sometimes I end up with duplicate entries or occasionally
have a new calendar get lost on the first sync after I entered it
(Windows). But, for the most part, I have been happy with my devices. I
did not buy a Linux based PDA because of the lack of sync. I don't know
what my next device will be, but possibly a Palm-Pre, iPhone, or
Blackberry. I like being able to access the Internet from my Blackberry
as well as the built-in GPS. These were the major reasons I switched
from Palm.
