That's pretty strange.  I haven't heard of this issue before.  I'm
currently running 2.8.3 and doubt there's much difference from 2.8.2.

Try the following:
1. stop gnome-pilot (remove the applet, killall gpilotd).
2. clear all contacts from Evolution (if you need to, you can backup
   your evo contacts first by 'save addressbook as vcard')
3. Start gpilotd from a terminal window (usually lives in
   /usr/libexec/gpilotd or /usr/bin/gpilotd).
4. Configure the addressbook conduit to do 'copy from PDA'.
5. Now try and sync.

Does that help?  If not, is there any indication of trouble in the
gpilotd terminal output?  It should show some information about the data
being transferred.

If you still have problems, I suggest you raise a bug at and attach your terminal output there.  That way we
can track the issue properly.  If you are opening a bug, please include
information on what distribution you are using and what
gnome-pilot/pilot-link/evolution/evolution-data-server packages you are
