    (I guess Google thought my previous post was spam, and it was
    deleted...?)

    Maybe someone can learn from my research, and someone else can help me
    find what I'm looking for:

    The data cable is known as a CA-45, or an FBUS cable. They are widely
    available on the net; I ordered one from a place in HongKong. I'd
    tell you the company but it came with cracked software, so I don't
    want to give them any business.

    One place in the U.S. where you can get it (for maybe a bit too much)
    is www.boxwave.com

    The chipset(?) of the cable is a PL-2303. The basic driver is
    available at:
    http://www.prolific.com.tw/eng/downloads.asp?ID=31
    and
    http://focus.ti.com/docs/toolsw/fold...usbwinvcp.html

    I couldn't get the first one to work and haven't tried the second; I
    used the driver that came with the cable.

    It was installed on a Dell C600 laptop running Windows XP.
    The driver can be seen in the Device Manager under Ports, as 'Prolific
    USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM4)'

    The first management software I tried was Nokia's free PC Suite. Both
    version 5.8 and 6.83 did not communicate with the phone. If anyone
    knows a hack to make it work, that would be awesome.

    I found two commercial software applications that will communicate
    with the phone; each company has a few different choices, and both had
    trial downloads.

    Oxygen Phone Manager II (Russia)
    http://www.oxygensoftware.com/en/products/opm2/

    Logo Manager (UK)
    http://www.logomanager.co.uk/php/myp...=6030&x=31&y=7

    Both programs connected to the Nokia 6030 with relative ease; COM4
    might have to be specified as the connectivity port.

    Oxygen Phone Manager II manages most of the phone's attributes, and
    has a nice left-hand Phone explorer.

    The Logo Manager products seem more multimedia oriented. The trial
    download of Mobius Phone Explorer had contact and I think text
    messaging interfaces, but no calendar and other features that Oxygen
    had. It is also modular; the Media Browser was a separate
    program...not all together like Oxygen.

    Neither program had a way to add Notes in the Organizer section--which
    can be 3000 characters long. I would have liked that. I was looking
    to use it as a pseudo-PDA, thrifty guy that I am.

    Both programs were about $40, which is $10 more than I paid for the
    phone.

    If anyone knows of any comparable lower-priced, or even free,
    products, please post!
    Even just a utility to enter and backup the phonebook would make the
    cable worth while; otherwise short of $40 more I can't use the cable.

    Also, feel free to comment if you know why Nokia won't support cables
    and connectivity on this phone. (My guess is that it drives people to
    get the more expensive models.)

    The exact same thing applies to the Nokia 6061,it drives me buggy as to
    why they refuse to fully support some of their phones. And so much for
    the salesman at the Cingular store who told me I could get software and
    cable from Nokia!

    Calendar notes addtion isn't available in trial version: trial version works in read-only mode with Calendar.

    We can offer Oxygen Express ( http://www.oxygen-express.com/ ). It is cheaper ( 24.95 EUR for Individual license) than Oxygen Phone Manager II and is able to back your phonebook up and restore. There is no detailed editor for the entries: 'just' backup, restore and migrate functionality.

    This phone doesn't have official connectivity, that's why it isn't supported by PC Suite. The programs you have mentioned plus Oxygen Express are the only programs, that can pick this phone up and work with its data.
