I need to locate an open-source CRM that shows up in my phones contacts.

I'm OK with a one-time fee or a fee for support, but if am willing to host it, I don't see why it has to cost anything monthly?

The most popular open source CRM that I'm aware of is SugarCRM:
http://www.sugarcrm.com/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sugarcrm/

I've used it at several small companies in the past and it has always worked well, although there were some complaints from the admin folks that it was difficult to maintain. It's been a couple of years since I last used it, so maybe it has improved in that respect. The commercial editions all have a monthly fee, but the Community Edition is free, as long as you can host it yourself with PHP, a webserver, and a database (which it sounds as if you can):

I'm not sure if it will meet your requirement for showing up in your phone's contacts, so you'll need to look into that. Regards, Joe
