I want to have Sansan data displayed when my phone rings

Here we will show how to synchronize Sansan business card data with the contact list in your telephone.

You cannot directly synchronize Sansan with the contact list on your smartphone, but you can connect the Sansan data with your Google Contacts, and then synchronize Google Contacts with the contact list in your smartphone.
