It always seem to be the minute that Apple get around to adding support for the phone I currently have, I'm about to upgrade to the newer model. :rolleyes:

Ah well, there are some good scripts out there for SE phones, so all's not entirely lost!

I've employed a variety of hacks to iSync my Nokia N80 since I bought it in May 2006. Almost a year later, I finally get official support... though recently I upgraded to a Nokia E61, also supported!

Wouldn't it be sensible for Apple and/or cellphone manufacturers to release decent iSync plugins for their phones whenever new ones are released? I'm betting that if I run out and buy a Nokia N95 when it is finally released in a few weeks it won't be supported on iSync by neither Apple nor Nokia... but within hours the correct script will turn up on the Internet, heroically cludged together with virtually no tools and no quality control, released "as is" to glue the two halves of my technological crown together.

I truly respect these people, but their enormous efforts shouldn't be necessary. If it takes a motivated reverse-engineer less than a day to get iSync and a swanky new model of cellphone talking and syncing, it certainly wouldn't absorb any noticeable resources inside a major telecoms multinational.

Why don't companies just do it themselves, and avoid the angst and embarrassment?

If you were disappointed to find that your shiny new Sony Ericsson phone wasn't included this time, this might make you happy!

iSync 2.3 and 2.4 Phone Plugins for the following new SE phones are available here (http://mobile.feisar.com/plugins.html):

Sony Ericsson K320
Sony Ericsson K510
Sony Ericsson K550
Sony Ericsson K618
Sony Ericsson K810
Sony Ericsson W300
Sony Ericsson W610
Sony Ericsson W700
Sony Ericsson W710
Sony Ericsson W850
Sony Ericsson W880
Sony Ericsson Z610
Sony Ericsson Z550
Sony Ericsson Z710
Sony Ericsson Z558
Sony Ericsson V630

http://mobile.feisar.com/plugins.html

These plugins are actually being demonstrated by Sony Ericsson themselves on their stand at the CeBIT 2007 techno-fair.

I dunno... at first, I was really looking forward to it. It's still a year away, here in England. Lame. Good things come to those who wait, I guess. Although I never really wait that long.

I just got a sharp 903SH, and whilst it doesn't have isync, it does have a 3.2MP camera with 2x optical zoom - and it's 3G, which is great for emails and/or any net usage.:apple:

You can sync with a BlackBerry. Just download PocketMac, it's free, and it works. I do it all the time with my Pearl.

The only minor annoyance is that I can't sync over Bluetooth, I have to use USB, but it's not that big of a deal.

I could sync my SE 800i no problem with one of the third party plug-ins before 10.4.9 but now it's broken.

Everything starts off fine (the phone is seen and starts comparing contacts) but then iSync just gives up after a few seconds saying 'The synchronization may have been cancelled on the phone'.

I'm only trying to sync one group of contacts from Address Book, not the calendar.

The E70 has more or less the same software internally as the E61 so I suspect it will work**. At least, iSync works for me fine, since the update, and I've got a E70 too.

** actually, N70, N80, etc.. they are all Symbian 9.x phones using more or less the same firmware - with a few differences. Calendar I believe is no different from other S60 symbian 7, 8 etc phones ( which is quite lame because it needs an update fast!)

I'm surprised Apple added USB support, I suspect thats got something to do with the iPhone.

I'm considering that too and since the iphone is going to sync with itunes this is likely to become true.
but still i think the iphone is not a real business device, so i feel like this is sort of a wrong marketing-strategy not supporting the smartphone line..and assuming that all those people with blackberry, p990 etc. are going to buy iphones..

btw: If Apple did this, it would absolutely stink. But I wouldn't be too surprised if Apple did drop support for every phone except for its own cell phones, partly citing the reasons of:
- iPhone syncs better ( even though there is no reason why Apple wouldn't sync other phones just as well, such as Nokia Series60 etc )
- To encourage more sales of iPhone
- Better 'user experience' - iPhone
- Too much resources to update the growing list of cell phones.


but still i think the iphone is not a real business device, so i feel like this is sort of a wrong marketing-strategy not supporting the smartphone line..and assuming that all those people with blackberry, p990 etc. are going to buy iphones..

I just saw some of the features and video of the iPhone and I have to say that Apple had better put these in the next iPod. It is time for an update to that UI. It was great 8 years ago now it is time for change. I especially love the way the full screen iPod features/UI looks in the iPhone. I will hold out for ver1 of the full/touch screeen iPod (Gen 6). Even if it is buggy I will cherish it if it can do all of the iPhone's iPod features.

I would also like it to have flash memory, (... a hush falls over the crowd...) :eek: I know I know that isn't enough space... yadda yadda... but I would love to have a device that could last all day while playing music. Maybe 5 - 6 hours of video playback... Not to worried about video playback but the music playback is my big thing. And just having the thing last as long as my shuffle would make me melt into it.

I think LG phones just suck. I have an LG 325 and I can't stand it! It is the worst phone i have ever owned. It is a piece of useless junk plastic that I don't think needs to be kept around for much longer.

My battery never lasts until the end of the day and i can only make 5 or 6 calls before it hits 1 bar of battery life. The reception sucks and i lose my signal in random and sporatic places, (No it isn't Sprint... it's the LG trust me:mad: ) and the thing just SUCKS :mad:

I hope no one ever supports LG phones because they all just SUCK ***K

And that is a K1m Krzr phone...SO I'm confused

It is important to note that some of the syncing issues may NOT be with Mac OS X but with the service provider. Note that Verizon has intentionally crippled many of the bluetooth capabilities of their phones in order to force subscribers to use their pay services such as "Get It Now" and uploading of contact lists. If Mac users are still having difficulties syncing their phones, chances are if you're a Verizon customer it may be for those reasons. As an ex-Verizon customer I had difficulties syncing my RAZR v3 and later discovered it was due to Verizons crippling of OBEX and later crippling of contact exchange. I switched to Cingular and have none of those problems with my RAZR v3.

Wouldn't it be sensible for Apple and/or cellphone manufacturers to release decent iSync plugins for their phones whenever new ones are released?
[...]
Why don't companies just do it themselves, and avoid the angst and embarrassment?
The bigger issue is, "why does every phone manufacturer need to reinvent the wheel with each minor model variation?" Even if each manufacturer didn't buy into a single standard, why can't they at least use their own proprietary one across the line? That way, if you have a Samsung phone and your sync application of choice supports SamsungSyncProtocol, you're off to the races instead of fiddling around because the 8300gx works but the 8300gz doesn't (not real model numbers, I know).

I plan to seriously look at the iPhone, but it pisses me off I cant easily do stuff with my blackberry.....
Look into the solutions posted already, or try Google. As a former Blackberry user and a Mac user, I don't see where the problem lies. There are a few features that are possible only with their own Windows software, which is RIM's fault and no one else's.

I'm somewhat surprised that Apple haven't taken the line of

"If you want to sync your phone, then buy the iPhone", and stopped development of iSync.
That would be absurd. That would be like taking away support for non-Apple displays and keyboards. Apple can't kill iSync, because it's for more than just phones, and it's built with Bluetooth and USB syncing, for which there are standard profiles. They could stop developing fixes for finicky phones, but it shouldn't be up to the OS to make itself compatible with the devices. The manufacturers should make a greater effort to be compatible with Macs--the fact that Apple works to make phones compatible is bonus, not an expectation.
Spot on, the iPhone is not a business phone. All other smartphones are, though.
What makes it not a business phone? If the "install anything you want" aspect is what you're thinking, I've got news for you: most corporate phone users don't install additional software, and many are prohibited from doing so on company hardware; whatever third party software is ultimately available will probably cover all the essentials used for add-in software (IM, a few games, RSS reader, Salling Clicker). The iPhone seems to work with Exchange, and that's really the big sticking point. Text input will really be something decisive, but we just don't know yet.

Yes, it would be absured.

Realistically, there isn't much incentive for phone manufacturers to make OSX software for their cell phones - there just isn't the market share.

The iPhone lacks too many features, such as Exchange integration, also no Blackberry support. Apple may add that, or allow a 3rd party app... but its not 100% certain.

Also, the iPhone is locked to high heaven, especially to the cell networks. Not to mention its price. Blackberry dominate the corporate world and I don't think the iPhone will make a dent. The iPhone a consumer device and that is how Apple is marketing it. There are smartphones ( suitable for the corporate world ) and then there's the iPhone ( the consumer device). Worlds apart.

Additionally, there aren't any MS office viewers like found on other smartphones such as Nokia, SE, Backberry, etc. When it comes to IM - I expect the iPhone will support AIM, but the vast majority of people use MSN ( or Blackberry messaging ).

I still can't send SMS messages trew my phone using adressbook, that always worked fine with my SE T610, but since i have a p910i it just aint working no more, i really miss that functionality,but it seems it is something that apple does not care about only syncing works for them i guess.

My P900 wouldn't work with AddressBook either and sending of SMS.

There was an addon for AdressBook to allow limited functionality, but it still wouldn't send SMS.

While I have had several phones that have been support by iSync I have not had one that was supported in Address Book.

I have a Motorola V3 RAZR, probably the most popular phone out there right now.....until the iPhone gets here and while the my phone numbers, email address, etc. sync just fine I cannot use address book to display incoming cell phone calls or send SMS messages right from address book.

I can get most of these functions by using Blue Phone Elite but it does not tie into the system like address book does. Since Blue Phone can do this with the V3 there should be no reason Apple can not do it.


When the bluetooth button pops up in Address Book and I try to pair my already paired phone it appears to work but nothing happens. At least I get the full sync function from iSync just not the bells and whistles in address book.

Hmmm... I've been doing this successfully for quite a while.

At home I sync my Nokia N80 with my iBook (Contacts & Calendars) using iSync. Before 10.4.9 I used the Novomedia plugin.

At work I sync my Outlook calendar (I don't bother with the contacts - that does just screw things up) with my N80 using Nokia's PC suite. Apart from some tweaking of duplicate entries because (until now) iSync wouldn't sync daynotes correctly... it just works! Every time I add an appointment to either my N80, iBook or Work PC, it eventually ripples through to the other two.

To be on the safe side I also take regular backups of my OS X calendar and address book - just in case it screws up on me one day.

I also did this with my Nokia 7610 before I got my N80

It mixes them. The Mac can handle multiple calendars, as can MS Outlook, but the N80 only has 1 calendar - so everything merges on that.

I plan to seriously look at the iPhone, but it pisses me off I cant easily do stuff with my blackberry.....


Is it really Apple's fault? Don't most of the phones that iSync support not have their own software that comes with the phone, such as with Palm phones and Blackberry and WinCE phones? Palm is just one of the companies that have their own software specifically for mac and with BB and CE you need some third party software for support.

You can sync with a BlackBerry. Just download PocketMac, it's free, and it works. I do it all the time with my Pearl.

The only minor annoyance is that I can't sync over Bluetooth, I have to use USB, but it's not that big of a deal.


syncing is only like 5% of functionality....SMS using address book. Speakerphone via the apple mic and speakers, answering the cell phone from the apple. When your cell phone rings it pops up on your mac from the address book and you can decide to answer it or not, from the mac keyboard....it turns your mac into an extension of your phone and you can set your phone to teh side and use your computer to control it. Very cool if you work in front of your computer...turn your ringer off and you can work and be notified of SMS, or actual calls right on your screen....I did this all with my old motorola phone, but cant with my blackberry....

The iPhone does work with Exchange, and Windows and Palm smartphones also lack "Blackberry support," whatever that is.
Also, the iPhone is locked to high heaven, especially to the cell networks. Not to mention its price.
So are smartphones, which are the same price as the iPhone. Unlocking them both is perfectly legal. You show me an 8GB smartphone for $600 unsubsidized anywhere, and we'll talk price.
Additionally, there aren't any MS office viewers like found on other smartphones such as Nokia, SE, Backberry, etc.
All of which, except for the upcoming version's promises, absolutely suck. You can't compose on them, and you can't make any edits without completely destroying the formatting--that's even after you go through all sorts of contortions just to be able to view a standard pleading template because of the nested tables and text areas. Business users don't use Pocket Word or Excel. A simple rich text editor like TextEdit is about all that's needed. Powerpoint would be handy if it could zoom in and out to review presentations, but because it's got a stripped down engine, it can't even properly display anything but the most basic slides. You don't have fonts, proofing tools, full formatting support, ability to manipulate charts or other embedded objects or even a way to print directly from the thing.

I suspect you think those features are more important than they are. In reality, they're nothing but a nuisance. Yes, I own a Windows Mobile smartphone, and yes, I love it. The iPhone absolutely could replace it, though. As long as it supports Salling Clicker and IM when it launches, I know a building with hundreds of professionals who will be clamoring for one.
When it comes to IM - I expect the iPhone will support AIM, but the vast majority of people use MSN ( or Blackberry messaging ).
Not in the US, they don't, but I don't see why there wouldn't be multi-protocol support for the sake of global interoperability.

I've been using iSync to sync the contacts on my KRZR from Cingular with a little description file I found easily on the web. It synced (sunk?) the names and phone #'s just fine, but that was it, no pictures or addresses.

Since this update, it still doesn't upload my address book contact photos to my phone, but if I have different contact pictures on my phone, it asks me which one I want to use. If I choose the one on my phone, it downloads it to my computer. If I choose the one on my computer, nothing happens.

I have no idea what this means, but it seems like something different is going on under the hood for contact syncing.

And speaking of phone syncing, I've given up on iCal, and now sync my phone to my google calendar with goosync and it's worked wonderfully so far.

Pretty lazy of Apple not to include Samsung D600E support alongside the D600. It's basically the exact same phone, only with a different antenna for the European market.

It's a popular phone in the UK, so here's a quick hack:

(1) Find the file 'MetaClasses.plist' via the following path:

/Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/Samsung-D600.phoneplugin/Contents/Resources/MetaClasses.plist

(2) Using TextEdit or similar, change the line 'SAMSUNG+SAMSUNG SGH-D600' to 'SAMSUNG+SAMSUNG SGH-D600E'.

(3) There's no step 3. :)

I've employed a variety of hacks to iSync my Nokia N80 since I bought it in May 2006. Almost a year later, I finally get official support... though recently I upgraded to a Nokia E61, also supported!

Wouldn't it be sensible for Apple and/or cellphone manufacturers to release decent iSync plugins for their phones whenever new ones are released? I'm betting that if I run out and buy a Nokia N95 when it is finally released in a few weeks it won't be supported on iSync by neither Apple nor Nokia... but within hours the correct script will turn up on the Internet, heroically cludged together with virtually no tools and no quality control, released "as is" to glue the two halves of my technological crown together.

I truly respect these people, but their enormous efforts shouldn't be necessary. If it takes a motivated reverse-engineer less than a day to get iSync and a swanky new model of cellphone talking and syncing, it certainly wouldn't absorb any noticeable resources inside a major telecoms multinational.

Why don't companies just do it themselves, and avoid the angst and embarrassment?

Simple, because Nokia doesn’t support any platform other than windows and Apple makes changes to iSync and can break the plug-ins. If Apple would have a set framework and allow plug-ins it would make the life of everyone easier. Then Nokia, SE and others may actually develop their own plug-ins. Until iSync is opened up, this won’t happen.

The same for other phones announced from Nokia, the E61i. It will eb here in the next few months and is just a slight change to the existing phone, i.e. different keypad and the addition of a camera. The N80i has been available. I think it is great that Apple is adding phones, but it takes them too long. Some of these phones have been available for a year or longer and their replacements are almost available.

It is important to note that some of the syncing issues may NOT be with Mac OS X but with the service provider. Note that Verizon has intentionally crippled many of the bluetooth capabilities of their phones in order to force subscribers to use their pay services such as "Get It Now" and uploading of contact lists. If Mac users are still having difficulties syncing their phones, chances are if you're a Verizon customer it may be for those reasons. As an ex-Verizon customer I had difficulties syncing my RAZR v3 and later discovered it was due to Verizons crippling of OBEX and later crippling of contact exchange. I switched to Cingular and have none of those problems with my RAZR v3.

I can believe some of the providers do cripple their phones but when I try to access the extra features of bluetooth phones and Address Book it will not work, yet when using Blue Phone Elite it does work. This means that either the programmers at Blue Phone found a workaround or Apples programmers can't figure out how to provide these features.

Since the V3 RAZR's are so common I find it hard to believe that Apple has not added these features to Address Book yet. I guess I will put another feature request on the feedback page at Apple.com.

its kinda like windows. but now we cant even download drivers for our phones. To sync a phone on windows means you have to get the drivers and the software. at least with os x you dont have the hassle of having to find the software for every phone. and then finding the driver. then having to restart. then having to find the usb cable.

iSync makes things a lot easier, and the amount of phones it supports is huge when you compare it to say how many phones windows supports without installing additional software. I think there should be a thread for people to moan that windows doesnt support their phone out of the box!

VPN - VPN providers can't provide their own VPN clients for iPhone because its a restricted environment.

But as you say, iPhone isn't for everyone ; like all products.

I would argue that iPhone can't do things as well as other smarpthones, i.e., Symbian, windows etc because the 3rd party software environment will be limited. It may have the potential - most definitely, but its been throttled.

They only care because they've been told to by salespeople. There's no difference between using IMAP at 1 minute and using push email, except that you might get a few messages a few seconds later (if 30 second email delays will kill you, a) you need a vacation and b) how did you survive two years ago?). IMAP even offers the benefit of allowing you to see the subjects before you waste time and bandwidth downloading unimportant messages and maintaining a persistent connection.
VPN - VPN providers can't provide their own VPN clients for iPhone because its a restricted environment.
Why? What corporate environment do you know that has a VPN client written by a 20something developer on the weekends? The VPN services will release an iPhone client if they choose to--just like they choose whether or not to release them now on other, existing platforms.
