    I bought the Motorola RAZR V3i because it was listed in the phones supported by iSync. I updated OSX to 10.4.9, so I have the latest version. I had no problems with my old Ericsson phone.

    I set the Bluetooth of the V3i to discoverable, and when I scan for devices in iSync, nothing is found.

    Thanks

    Open up system preference and go to the bluetooth tab. Tehn devices and "set up new device..." Set it up and then iSync should find it. (Think it is automatically added to isync as part of the setup routine.)

    regarding isync, i don't think you can sync the v3i via bluetooth. i use bluetooth for data transfer (music, pictures), but i use the usb cable to sync contacts and calendars.

    OK. That setup is what was needed.

    BTW, by USB it was already working.

    Thanks

    I believe that when you scan for new devices in iSync it just scans the system for devices that are setup which it knows it can sync with. Rather than scanning the area for physical devices. At least that what experience suggests, this is another example.

    Glad it is working.

    No, iSync scans Bluetooth for devices that are already paired, as well as scanning USB for anything.

    where do you download isync 2.4? with the 10.4.9 system-update isync 2.2 is included.

    or is it wrong?

    hello,

    i sloved the problem with copying the hole isync app. then it works. there where a little problem which brokeup the start process. but your problem sounds like a problem with the isync plugin. did u installed it?

    i don`t know where i found it. but it was for free. so, just google yourself the plugin. ;) i allready have a new phone.

    enjoy.

    philipp
