    Ouch, yeah . . . about that. Apple and Nokia don't really mix these days. ;)

    Apple will tell you to buy an iPhone. But I think you're out of luck now unless someone comes up with a replacement for iSync.

    how do i get rid of iSync?

    I still have an iSync/MobileMe icon in the toolbar even after upgrading to Lion. I would rather get rid of it and I'm not sure when it started to appear. Anyone know how to get rid of it? [​IMG]

    Update: nevermind I found my answer on the support.apple.com site. Hold command and drag the icon off the menu bar.

    That's your MM sync. Open preferences and turn it off or sign out of MM sync. I think there is a checkbox to show in tool bar, but I am restoring SL right now so cant check that one.

    got it

    Thanks for the help. I don't have a MM account, did a looooong time ago so that may be when it appeared. I did try to login to turn it off last week and I got a message that I don't have a MM account. Did find my answer though: CMD+ drag it off the menu bar.

    I only just discovered this today when I got a new phone, and I'm absolutely furious!

    I neither want nor need an iPhone, so being able to sync with other, standard Bluetooth capable phones is an absolute must, and a feature that should not be absent from any modern consumer operating system.

    It's bare-faced anti-competitive practise; Microsoft has got themselves into major trouble over Internet Explorer, so why is it that Apple things it can just get away with trying to force everyone onto iOS?

    Fortunately the Snow Leopard version of iSync still works, but I guarantee 10.8 will get rid of the SyncServices framework that powers it.

    Yes, if they do that, then syncing these other devices will be scuttled.

    Since no one mentioned it yet, and the thread's already bumped back up, PocketMac products are compatible with Lion and offer syncing for a variety of devices. I don't see some of the newest Nokia hardware on there, but they do offer syncing for a variety of Blackberry, Motorola, HTC, and Nokia products, among others. Eltima's SyncMate is also Lion compatible and offers syncing options for a wide variety of devices as well.
