How did you log into it there?
There's a built-in "OVI sync" app. but it doesn't show much. I entered
my Nokia credentials when I 1st set up my phone. AFAICT my only options
were to enter the credentials.
Is there still a web interface?
No, as you say below, I end up on here.com
. Once logged in, I do have an
option to log into my Nokia account, but there are only basic options
there (personal info etc.), nothing about syncing.
credentials did you use for SyncEvolution?
Same as Nokia account/here.com
: e-mail address and password

I can reproduce that. It only happens after several SyncML message
exchanges where the server rejects the client credentials. I was using
credentials which used to work. I suspect it is a denial-of-service
protection. The real problem is getting username and password right.

I wasn't even aware that ovi.com
was still offering a SyncML service.
I'm not even sure it does, as the "OVI sync" app. is different from the
"Sync" app., where various SyncML services can be configured.
I'd gladly use this latter app. if only it could be scheduled.
As for "OVI Sync", I couldn't tell for sure whether it uses SyncML.
redirects to here.com
and that doesn't mention SyncML at
This renders the old instructions for adding a new client ("
Register your account at Ovi.com
, add your phone by Ovi.com->Login->Add
Yes, I searched for these and I noticed the changes.
More generally, I don't know if it makes much sense starting using OVI
In the meantime I tested Everdroid aka Mobical fairly successfully. If
only I could schedule the sync... I wonder what would happen if I fed
the Everdroid parameters into the (schedulable) Funambol client; I plan
to try that.
