It could be that the phone only works with one PC, leading to slow
syncs, which restore data as found on both sides, thus restoring the

I'm not sure if that's what I need to do or if Syncevolution alone
would suffice? Well, the server is installed, but not configured yet.
Funambol is one option, but IMHO overkill. I'd go for an installation of
SyncEvolution as HTTP server instead, see
The main advantage is full iCalendar 2.0 support.
If you synchronize all your devices (desktop, laptop, phone) against
that server, then also the problem above should go away (if my guess is
Alternatively you could sync the phone always with the same device (say,
the laptop) and then laptop to desktop, using either HTTP or Bluetooth.
You would need obexd with the syncevolution plugin (part of recent obexd
releases, activated with command line option) on either laptop or
