    I'm thinking of getting the Ericsson w580 cell phone. Does anyone know if it is compatible with Leopard, particularly with iSync and syncing music files? I heard that syncing with the Ericcson w810 was really slow (not to mention the included Sony software was Windows only), so I was just wondering it's the same deal with the w580.

    Thanks all!

    Most, if not all, Sony Ericsson phones are compatible with iSync.

    you dont really need isync, just use the usb cable that comes with it, connect it to the computer, and drag-n-drop the files onto the phone

    The phone is NOT natively supported in iSync, but there are some 3rd party plugins you can install to get support. http://www.feisar.com/plugins.html is what I used. It costs a little money, but does its job very well.

    I don't actually have the w580, but I have the s500 which is essentially the same phone.

    Great, thanks for the replies! For those who have the phone, how fast is transferring files via USB and bluetooth? And would you consider it an acceptable iPod replacement? Currently my carrier (Rogers) offers this phone with an 8 GB card, so I'm hoping to replace my aging iPod with it. Thanks again for any help.
