The conduits from kde 2.2.2 didn't work for me, either. In kde 3.0 the
calendar conduit was completely broken, but starting from 3.0.1 it was
improved, and with 3.0.3 or 3.1 it should work fine now. I've been using it
for some months now, and I think it really works now (if it doesn't work for
you, please tell me, since I'm the current maintainer of the conduit).

As far as the addressbook conduit is concerned: Between kde 3.0.x and 3.1 the
conduit was completely rewritten (again by me), so that it now uses kde's
addressbook library libkabc. It works great for me, too. Only the categories
are messed up sometimes. I will fix this when I find some sparetime, but that
will probably take several more weeks.

As I said, I use kpilot to sync the calendar/todo, addressbook, AvantGo and
the memos (to knotes). So far, it is working reasonably well.

I actually tried syncing with gnome-pilot some time ago, and it completely
messed up the addressbook on my clie (duplicate entries, multi-day events
lost the recurrence etc.).
