Today most of the devices used for telephony serv- ices use proprietary and location dependent imple- mentations for storing and accessing phonebook and contact list data. There exists a large variety of ven- dor specific address book and contact list formats. Users are not able to exchange and access their indi- vidual phonebooks or contact lists on different types of phone devices and telephony applications or services. With this solution it is possible to synchronize the phonebook and contact list data of a wireline phone or mobile phone automatically with the phonebook and contact list of Voice-over-IP phone or Voice- over-IP application and vice versa.
