    It seems that people who choose non-Apple phones will not be left out in the cold :)

    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?

    Sony Ericsson K320
    Sony Ericsson K510
    Sony Ericsson K550
    Sony Ericsson K618
    Sony Ericsson K810
    Sony Ericsson W300

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

    Weren't all of these unofficially supported already? I've had my N80 syncing all the time by only making one tiny edit to a plist file.

    This is not really 'news'... it even has this list on the isync site. Oh well. No good rumours I guess...

    It'll be a nice day when they get a phone from Sharp supported. No biggy. :D

    There's a guy here that sells that kind of thing .... :rolleyes:

    Anyway,we're all just waiting for iphone now, aren't we? :eek:

    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:

    Motorola v3m?

    I have the Red Motorola RAZR v3m but iSync says my device is not supported. Anyone else find this to be a problem? Or know of a plug in I can download?
