nokia e63 with ubuntu 11.04

i have this old (no so smart)phone, nokia e63. earlier, i used to sync up my phone with nokia's own suite. now on ubuntu, things have changed. i wasn't planning on using wine to run my windows applications. i googled a little and found nokuntu. hence, downloaded it.

let the installation begin.
since the file downloaded has .deb extension, it's somewhat easy to install. simply, right click it and say "open with ubuntu package manager" :) and then click on install. see, this easy, no next, next, next and finish.

i clicked on install and unfortunately, i got this warning!

i tried to move on and clicked "ignore and install" but yikes, it failed!

anyway, i had to transfer media files to my cellphone. i plugged it in with the micro-usb cable that comes with standard box packaging. on cellphone, it pops up which mode to choose and i chose, "mass storage".

it easily gets detected as a media device, like a card reader. i did transfer my files to card however, it wasn't getting read on cellphone. somehow, the phone was not able to recognize my sandisk micro sd card which i had bought recently and used for the first time with ubuntu. 

well, i think reboot is sometimes the best solution to our problem (as previously i worked on microsoft windows operating system), i rebooted my phone and yippe, everything worked ;)

so, it seems like i would have to find another alternative for syncing my sms and contacts in ubuntu. nokuntu doesn't work!
