Wammu was a great tool till Karmic Koala. After that it has become a problem. It doesn't synchronize time properly. You can export contacts but cannot import. You cannot save SMS properly since it gets truncated. I don't know any other good tool. KMobileTools sucks big time. GTK+ Transfers only files. Multisync claims to work but I haven't yet understood what exactly it does.
