8310 DTelecom USB / Bluetooth Icon-question.png Unknown 11.x Hot plug automounts with USB under KDE-3.5.10. Bluetooth not tested.
8330 Curve Verizon USB Icon-question.png Icon-question.png 10.3, 11.x Hot plug automounts as an USB mass storage device under KDE-3.5.10. MicroSD card works and can be uses as a MicroSD card reader if set to do so in the Blackberry settings. Bluetooth not tested due to me not having a bluetooth capable computer. Tethering not done due to the phone not being active. Syncing failed.
Bold 9700 AT&T USB Icon-checked.png Icon-cross.png 11.x Tethering is possible under AT&T using Barry, but it is not for the faint of heart. Don't attempt this without a tethering plan. Syncing is also possible, but so difficult and buggy that I would classify it as useless.

Hero Android T-Mobile USB Icon-question.png Icon-cross.png ** 11.x Autosearch and download multimedia files with Digikam works. Full access to storage works. HTC-Sync does not work.
Desire Android Any (tested BiBob DK) USB Icon-checked.png Icon-cross.png ** 11.x Full access to storage works. HTC-Sync does not work.
Leo (HD2) [1] Windows Phone 6.5 Any (tested Vodafone IT, H3G IT) USB, Wi-Fi Icon-checked.png Icon-cross.png ** 11.2 Syncing will not work. When you connect the HD2 to USB, you are asked how the device will behave. If you choose either "Network sharing" or "Mass memory" it will work without further configuration as a network card or storage device.*

In the first case, your computer will share 3G connection with the PDA. Vice versa (like in Windows) is not possible.*

You can always share 3G connection using "Wireless Router" software that is installed by default in the ROM, provided you have a wireless card.


*This should apply to any Windows Phone 6.5 device
**Notice that Banshee provides sync features for multimedia
