The Nokia 5800 and N97 are now supported by Ovi Sync

Hot off the press, Ovi just added support for S60 5th Edition phones such as the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and N97. Each can now be added in the 'Manage your device' section and, crucially, you can now sync your Calendar, Contacts, To-dos and Notes to Ovi. For 5800 owners like me who have felt a little uneasy about the lack of OTA backup, then this is very welcome. Screen grab proof below.

Read on in the full article.

...Erm..you always could sync with Ovi. You just need to choose a different S60 device from that list. I've been syncing since November.

I've had a lot of problems syncing to Ovi using my 6220 classis - calendar is fine but contacts is broken for me. It appears to sync fine, but not all the fields sync properly - some contacts lose phone numbers, addresses etc. This means I can't rely on it for a backup. Would be interested to know if other people (and other S60 phones) have the same issue.

Yes, I know you could always fake it. But this is official and (presumably) tested/ratified for S60 5th Edition. Anyway, I'd been waiting to pounce on this for weeks and it's finally up. So. There. 8-)

Yup. Same issue. I would not rely on it. In short, I find it lacking and not very reliable.

Received the text, entered the pin, saved the text.

Next, it says, go to sync and choose Ovi from options.

No Ovi in sync options, in fact no Ovi anywhere.

It's shyte.

Within 'Sync', you have to use 'Options - Change active sync profile'.

Not very intuitive though, I much preferred the old fashioned way Sync worked 8-(

Yep, same on my E51. Some fields are missing. I have tried everything possible and there's no way to come around this problem. Unusable at the moment.

From a combination of AAS user help I got it working, thanks.

Absolutely nothing like the way Nokia suggest it's done when you sign up.

N97 and Ovi sync

Managed to get it to sync my Contacts using Ovi sync, but it will not do my Notes. Keeps coming up with Invalid database or something.

Is there any way you could do one of your great ttorials on setting this up because, although I'm still trying, I just can't seem to get it to work.
