OK, found it:

It could be that the phone uses the value set with the
"remoteIdentifier" to track who it is talking to. We suggest to set that
to one of the values accepted by some phones ("PC Suite"), but perhaps
your phone really needs a unique string there.
Can you try whether it still syncs when you unset the remoteIdentifier
with --configure --sync-property remoteIdentifier= <config name>?
No, it's all [ERROR] OBEX Request 3 got a failed response Forbidden then.
So I guess the next try would be to try a different remoteIdentifier
in the config for my desktop and laptop? Or are there any suggestions
for valid names since my first try with N85R500 didn't work, I got the
same response as with no remoteIdentifier?

This is part of the contacts. If they get transferred, you phone would
have to display the birthdays based on the contact information - not
sure whether it supports that.
Ah, I see. Well, the phone unfortunately does not support that. No
reminder for birthdays, even if you enter them on the phone. It often
seems Nokia has neglected their PIM software for the last 10 years or
so and even then it was primitive compared to 1990s PDAs from Palm,
But this is why I really want something that will create calendar
events from birthdays in contacts. In a way, Syncevolution could be
the right place to do that, since it should only happen when syncing
certain devices. OTOH, those calendar events shouldn't propagate from
the phone to software like Evolution that don't need it...
