Have fun exploring. You use the OM2007.2 stack. So you have gsmd[1] for 
handling the modem and various software to handle the telephony part[2]. To 
admit I don't know who is copying/synchronizing data from the SIM to the 
evolution addressbook in OM2007.2. All I know is the PIM apps are 
based/derived from pimlico of o-hand[3].

happy hacking
