    Hey guys, looking for some help trying to connect my Nokia fone to my PM via the USB cable that it came with.

    I had the Nokia PC Suite software installed on my PC, but can't find any similar software for OS X.

    iSync webpage says you can sync it, but only by bluetooth which i don't have on my mac.

    Anyone got anything that connects their nokia fone to their mac via the USB cable it came with?

    Please help! thanx alot :)

    Actually, I had the same problem with you with my nokia phone. Apparently, there is no way of doing this. The only way is to obtain a bluetooth module, a wireless usb adapter that connects to a free usb port on your mac and activated bluetooth. I have this and it worked like a charm...

    If my answer didn't cover you, you can always go in Howardforums and see what you can find.

    there's no way of doing it with a USB cable unless you write a driver and software for it....

    get a USB/Bluetooth dongle for your mac, won't set you back more than about $25 if you shop around.

    then it's perfectly easy. ;)

    I agree with bigandy - a Bluetooth USB dongle is the way to go. Plus you can then use cool programs like Romeo or Salling Clicker to remotely control your Mac.
    Also, the every time I've tried hooking up phones to Macs via USB I've got kernel panics...
