I need to provide smartphones to a number of employees. But the main feature I need is to sync the contact list stored in Kerio Connect with that in the smartphone. But I need ONLY the contact synchronization. Can I do this? Can it be done on any smartphone or only in certain brands?

Thanks in advance.


Gabriel.

1. What kind of phone?
2. What kind of contacts? Shared contacts? Public contacts? User contacts?

We use iPhone with Kerio, and it works very well.

1. Nokia 5800, but you can suggest a good phone for this task EXCEPT iphone.

2. User contacts and public contacts.

Thanks

I don't know much about phones other than iPhone. You could check with the phone vendor and see if that phone (or Symbian OS v9.4) supports ActiveSync. If it does, then you should be fine. I would get a phone and test it out, if you could.

You could also call Kerio support or google for a list of supported Android phone.

Hi,

I would not suggest Symbian (or Nokia Windows) phones. Check out all the Android phones, after an iPhone, they're the next best thing (my opinion).

As for your contacts question: If you put your addresses into the public contacts, you can have a synced address book via GAL (global address list). This feature was implemented for the exact reason.

Furthermore, having the public contacts "synced" (they don't really sync, your phone queries the server on demand, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Address_List for a start) benefits your users in having their personal address book for their own mom's, spouses, kids, vets and hair dresser address records.
