All the latest Symbian phones support SyncML. It's the folks who would
have SyncML working with your favourite PIM application that you
should be sore at, not Nokia. The standard exists, no Linux
applications yet support it.

I think the thing with SyncML seems to be that there are so very many
versions. These are probably the result of features being added over
time. But it seems to me that SyncML was not careful at the start to
allow future additions. It also happens that even new phones ship with
surprisingly old versions of SyncML. At least Nokia are like this.

Dotan is absolutely correct here... there are not multiple versions of
standard (multiple revisions that do have suitable compatibility with
older revisions maybe but there is only *one* standard), ... What the
server end supports is up to the server developer and has nothing to do
with the protocol itself...
