I think I might check if I can do this for a month, to try it out:
"VoiceDial safely stores thousands of numbers in your personal address
book. If you ever lose or change phones, you won't need to manually
re-enter all those names and numbers."  It stores them on their
network and you access your list over it. This should be free, but is
like $5/month, and it should sync up with your phone instead of
accessing the list on the network, but whatever....

KMobileTools looks interesting though not very documented and I'm
hesitate to bork my phone.

I'll probably try out Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools (Windows).

I know iSync (Mac) works to some extent, and I should be getting my
hands on a Mac soon, so I might try that.

I haven't found anything about Perl or Python or anything else very
interesting on my phone   - perhaps on Linux OS phones?
