This one was already reported, see:

I don't intend to add any sort of synchronisation to gnome-phone-
manager. OpenSync and co. are the best place to do this sort of thing,
but we'll certainly need to "cooperate" (ie. disconnect ourselves before
OpenSync can do so) but that's far enough ahead in the future that we
don't need to worry about that.
