Yeh, me too! My previous phone (N97) was backed up on pc suite but it got stolen - now i bought the N8, but unfortunately i cannot restore my backup onto my new phone - HOW STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have the C7 (S3, should be same as N8) and PC Suite 126.96.36.199 on my admin locked work laptop with Lotus Notes. I can transfer files & pictures but whem I try to Sync I get the message "connected phone is not supported by PC Sync.". I downloaded PC Suite 188.8.131.52 on my home computer & get the same message. Anybody know why? I got the phone because I thought the older version of PC Suite would work and from what I read here it works for most of you.
For work I really need my calendar & contacts to be up to date.
The workaround I am using is I kept my old Nokia 6233 and even without the sim card I can sync using PC Suite. Then I sync the 6233 with the C7 using the phone switch app. It is an extra step but only takes a few seconds after the first sync. I would prefer not to have to do this step though :-(
I have the same problem with my new C7-00I tried with different versions of pc suite:
Pc suite recognize the phone message and contact are ok, but when I try to click PC sync I have always the same message: phone is not supported by PC sync
Help please there is a working version?? to sync the agenda and contact
Please be advised that the supported software for Nokia N8 is Nokia Ovi Suite.

Hi Sisa - and Nokia-team,
can you tell me some more?
ovi suite is garbage, i hate the fact that I can't use PC Suite with my N8.
In PC Suite you can access your calendar and can manage your messages, you can't do any of these in ovi, there isn't even a calendar in ovi yet it stupidly has the option to sync it, laughable.
Well, I hate OVI Suite too as I had big issues by the past...
But I had to use it to upgrade the Anna new software (Anna 1/2 & Anna 2/2).
You know what happened after the update ? I had many contacts in duplicate and same for music albums...
I never asked for a synchro !
Nokia OVI Suite is a big sh...
I tried PC suite 184.108.40.206, it works perfectly in a good way.
