What sync software would you like to use?  I confess I don't
know much about that, is it possible that the phone doesn't

It is not difficult to write something that will listen on a
RFCOMM channel (and register with SDP server), maybe
rfcomm_sppd should be able to handle something like that.. 
there is a program in FreeBSD called rfcomm_pppd that does
handle this kind of thing for certain phones, but I didn't
port it because it seemed more useful for their user-ppp
