This has nothing to do with Obex. It has to do with the characterset you use.
You have to setup PhoCo for reading UCS2 characters.

The PhoneControl is a great program, but only for English users. I'm from Russia, and our phones don't support get a russian phone book over AT-commands. I see "?????? ????", but not "Ivanov Ivan". I view many russian technical sites, and one solution - give phone book by OBEX.
Question: will be planning a PhoneControl support exchange data by OBEX?
May be this issue is specific only for SonyEricsson, I'm not sure.
