The photo size does indeed appear to be the problem. However, I don't
think that it's necessary to change the size of a photo in a graphics
program prior to using it as a contact image; When editing a contact to
include a photo, a dialogue opens after hitting "save". If the image
size is too large, Evo presents options to "resize", "ignore", or
"save" (or something like this). When I chose "resize", the contacts
were then able to be synced!
While we're on the topic of Nokia fones, have you had any joy in syncing
Calendar events? Once this worked. Now it doesn't! Never mind, I'll pose
this question in a fresh post...

I think I had a similar problem in the past.
One day I bought an iPod touch that had a picture in a default "Apple"
contact, which made its way to my syncevolution server using the SyncML
lite app. So it got to my Nokia E55 phone where I saw that the phone
supports photos for contacts, which I wasn't aware of. In fact, I
tried to assign a picture to a contact before but failed due to the
obfuscated user interface (thanks Nokia).
Then I tried to assign a picture to a contact in evolution, but the
sync failed. I tried a bit more and found out that there seems to be a
size limit in the phone. Once the picture was small enough, sync
worked and the picture was shown on the phone.
