    I am thinking of buying Sprint PCS (to get away from huge over usage
    charges on a Cingular family plan), but how will I move the addresses?
    The Cingular phone is a V180 that syncs to a Mac Mini using iSync over
    a mini USB cable. The last time I changed phones, the Kiosk guy that
    sold the phone did nothing about the address book, another store made
    an attempt that had pretty poor results, so I wound up using iSync,
    which works well enough.

    Looking through the list of Sprint phones, I didn't see a reasonably
    priced phone that is also on Apple's iSync list. I like the CDM-120,
    but not if there is no way to transfer the address book (including
    info like home/work/cell labels) from the V180.

    Anyone know how to do this? It doesn't have to be iSync, I have
    Windows XP and Linux machines also. I would like the price to be
    the same ($0) as iSync.

    I used the OPP Bluetooth protocol to transfer contacts from Address Book
    to a Sanyo Katana phone. I have never used iSync and don't think that
    Sprint and/or their phone manufactures do much to support it either.

    Treo's sync to Linux, but you are looking for cheap and the Treo 700p is
    Sprint's most expensive phone so it's probably not what you want.
