A small message size would lead to splitting of items. But the phone
also imposes that size for every single item, and therefore larger items
can never be sent.
In that circumstance, if one oversized item is too large, are all
changes to the contact reverted? I updated two contacts, one with
photo and one without. I added an email to both. Google and Evo show
the updated data correctly, but after syncing with the phone, only the
photo-less contact has been updated.

Could this be because of dumping data? When you run SyncEvolution
1.2.99.x on the command line, you should see some output indicating that
it is busy doing these data dumps (usually enabled for the automatic
Yea - terminal says that, and disabling dumpData and printChanges fixes
the delay. It seems weird that the backup is taking so long - prior to
the photos being added, backups took no more than 5 or 10 seconds.
Actually, there is probably an easier way. Can you look at a

Sure - the log records the reported model as "Nokia 3720c". In case the
software version matters, that is recorded as "V 10.16 07-12-09 RM-518
I'm going to try updating the script files so that for this
data is stripped before encoding the data as vCard. Further work will be
needed to ensure that receiving an update from the phone the photo is
not removed on the host.
That sounds good to me - I'm happy to test anything you need. I gave
it a shot, and think I have the right idea, but can't figure out how to
put the pieces together.
