Newb here, just got my first mac, trying different things out. Here's my current problem:

I have a Nokia N80, and was able to change some stuff in iSync to get it to sync. Sync's fine, blah blah blah. Now here's the problem:

I still have to manually open iSync, click on "Sync Devices" (the keypress to whcih is apple+T) and confirm any boxes that might pop up. I don't want to have to do any of this. I want for whenever the phone comes in range, the mac to detect that, open iSync, and automatically synchronize everything.

I have zero programming skills, save for enough HTML to get through myspace. However, I was able to open ScriptEditor and record one, but I can't get the keypress to go in. Is there a way to automate all this using Applescript and perhaps Automator?

Does this (http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20060223140919435) help? Quick Google search returned that. I'd try it for you if I could, but I don't believe in cell phones. They honestly don't exist. Really.
