    Hi all,
    I have a late 2007 Al iMac, running SL 10.6.2. I have a BT Mighty Mouse that works fine with it. I also have a Nokia phone #2720. The Nokia pairs with the iMac, but when I try to connect the two, they connect briefly, then disconnect. The phone displays the message, "Service not supported by other device".
    I assume BT is an open protocol, letting all BT devices communicate with each other. Is this correct?
    Any ideas why I cannot connect these together? I have photos on the phone I want to download to my iMac.
    Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated! :)

    Im only running a Wireless Keyboard and a Nokia E71 on OSX 10.5.8 and have no issues. I tend to use the Noki Manager rather than the Mac connection. Mainly because I dont tend to sync, but brows for the files I want.

    I'm sure I'll work out how best to sync one day, but for the moment thats what I do.

    Give it a go, hope it helps.

    Aaaargh!

    The model of my Nokia phone, 2720, is not supported by that app. I guess I'll keep trying. Thanks anyway!
