KMobileTools is a nice KDE-based application that allows to synchronize and manage mobile phones with your PC. It handles full SMS control, dialing calls, phonebook, and phone status monitoring.

As KDE moved from version 3 to version 4, KMobileTools had started to be ported to Qt4 along with major API changes. A new engine has been written and the GUI redesigned. However, the former developers had to drop the project due to a lack of time and I recently decided to take it over. So, this developer release is also a CALL FOR DEVELOPERS: I won't be able to ensure the complete work, I need support and want to form a new team for development. Coding on KMobileTools is real fun, but I am very busy with my master degree and my coding experience is still not that rich, making KMobileTools evolve (too) slowly.

The project has migrated from the KDE Playground SVN to Gitorious: http://gitorious.org/kmobiletools
I currently have no time anymore to continue hacking on KMobileTools. Feel free to clone the git repo and to submit merge requests for every contribution of yours. Git is now the best mean to share the code and to make contributions easier through the clone/merge system it provides. I remain available for project administration and any insight I could give about the project. From now on, the project is in the hands of the contributors!

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in hacking on KMobileTools. As you can see, most of the work is done, let's finally finish it! The following list is how I would set the priorities: https://gitorious.org/kmobiletools/pages/Home

 dcop access?

 by DaHoC on: Sep 1 2009
Score 50%

I'm using kmobiletools for a while now and I it is great (and has come a long way)!

I was wondering how I can access the signal strength and battery status bar from dcop, I can access most other things?
Also, are you also planning on switching to dbus? (I'm thinking of creating a plasmoid for kde4)

Keep up the good work!

 The project IS dead.

According to one of the code contributors (Matthias), the project is dead:

"Hi Quentin,

to keep it short: KMobileTools is dead and I have no more time to
contribute to KDE at the moment.
Even if you manage to compile KMobileTools for KDE 4.x, do not expect it
to work. The best you could achieve is reading information from a
simulated mobile phone.

I agree that an app like KMobileTools is missing in the KDE sector. If
you take the time to find your way in the source code and resume work, I
am sure many people would be very grateful :-) I can promise that
working on KMobileTools is a lot of fun.

Best regards,

PS: you can grab the latest version at svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/pim/kmobiletools .
I can compile it successfully

 Great to see kmbt back to life

Will this be an akonadi resource?

Will you use libimobiledevice for iPhone/iPhod syncing?

There is no akonadi resource implemented for now, but there have been plans in the past which just have to be picked up.

KMobileTools works with different backends, it is now very easy to add libimobiledevice to support Apple products. However, there is a lack of manpower to archive this goal in the near future, feel free to have a look at the proof of concept "fake_engine" to add a libimobiledevice engine! Users and developers will highly appreciate! ;)

Thanks for your feedback, kind regards.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
