Sorry, public holiday here today, so I'm not reading all of my email.
Normally I would have noticed and approved it.

That shows that the phone is sending an incorrect Alert command:

[2010-11-01 14:04:56.664] - Processing Alert Item (code=201),
Source='Contacts', Target=''

Note the empty "Target" value. That's supposed be our URI, sent to the
phone earlier in the SAN message (not logged). For comparison, a Nokia
phone correctly sends us that:

[2010-11-01 13:56:00.470] - Processing Alert Item (code=200),
Source='/telecom/pb.vcf', Target='Contacts'

Just to be sure, is that "empty string" test perhaps where the empty
value came from in the log above?

If the phone always sends an empty string, then I can think of a
reasonably easy (?) workaround: fall back to the Source value when the
Target is empty.

If you log with an even higher log level (say 10), then you'll see the
Synthesis XML config which contains <datastore> entries with these URIs
as aliases.

The SAN message in SyncML 1.2 also contains it, but it is not logged.
