    Hi

    I'm having trouble using isync on my macbook with my iphone, I can't seem to get the two to connect via bluetooth.

    The macbook recognises the iphone fine, I type in the random numbers & then nothing

    I wondered if anyone else had a problem or any ideas??

    Bluetooth on the iPhone can only be used for a headset at this time. You cannot sync anything through iSync. It stinks.

    Everything just costs more money

    I read, that if you sign up for a .mac account (and pay money for a worthless service), THEN, you can use your Industry Standard Open Interface to sync data from your Mac to the iPhone. What a great deal to be able to pay every day for the rest of your life to use an open standard interface.

    Interesting new business model Apple has - let others spend money to develop technology, spend more money to have the technology adopted by the market, then clamp it down for their greedy profits. If .mac could stand on its own, they wouldn't have to resort to this - but I'm sure they'll find a way to stoop lower. By the way, anyone seen my wallet ? I think I just got pick-pocketed.

    I wonder if the Apple cafeteria makes you pay extra to use silverware. The new fees probably go into effect with the new policy making it a fire-able offense to eat with your hands.

    your post makes no sense: you don't need a .mac account to sync your iPhone

    yep

    another example of the iPhone being rushed

    MMS, Multiple recipients on sms etc... the list goes on...


    or maybe Apple planned to add features later to foil hackers/unlockers....

    Apple's innovation.. extort money from wireless carriers (raising end users prices ) rather than innovating, selling unlocked phones and charging wireless carriers fees for visual voicemail.
