I can sympathize: I tried bbdb a long time ago and tried to bend it to
my will. I was left battered and bruised and gave up on it. However,
once I let go and decided to let it do whatever it wants, it is almost
bearable (apart from mailing lists that attach different names to the
same email address: the change review emails for openstack are driving
me batty right now). But I store phone numbers, addresses, email
addresses and even birthdays and anniversaries in there and that has
been a rather good experience. But my needs are simple, and depending on
the kind of phone integration you are looking for, bbdb might not be
enough. What exactly are you looking for?
