just look for a "regular" "installing a generic linux" guide for that particular phone model.... if there's one, then you can always just grab a stage tarball for the appropriate processor and follow the handbook by jumping in at the arch's handbook's 'unpacking stage tarball' section.

compiling on a ~200mhz arm cpu or similar (which is sorta common on smartphones) with little ram is _not_ fun, however. just last thursday i queued up an emerge -auNDv world on a small dev box of mine with a 266 mhz arm cpu and 32 megs of ram... it was done on sunday, for about 60 packages including gcc.

if it runs any linux, you can also put gentoo linux on it. just use the same kernel, the userspace is usually no problem.

now 'calling' is bound to get tricky. i haven't even seen gpe nor opie in portage, i doubt there's apps tailored to mobile phones... but i suppose there are some around. just grab whatever other distros that can be put on the phone would use.

GPE can be found in PDA overlay. But ebuilds seem to be partially broken, base gpe packages can be build, but PIM fails. I haven't seen opie ebuilds, but would be interested in them.
