    I'm looking to get a phone that will play nice with OSX. Esp. iCal and contacts. The iPhone is not out here and even when it arrives will be way too expensive for me. I've always found nokia to have a clean UI, so would lean that way. But I'm not sure about the "N" series – too much for my needs. I'm looking for something that'll sync to my mac over USB (I've no bluetooth).

    I have a Razr v3t that works very well with iSync.

    I have found that Samsung phones don't use the protocol necessary for iSync.

    Look at Apple's Leopard iSync Page: www.apple.com/macosx/features/isync/.

    I don't know about the phones that sync with Tiger, but it seems Leopard doesn't sync with as many.

    Other phones, I don't know if they work. I am also looking for a phone that plays nice with Tiger and Leopard. :)

    Sony Ericsson phones usually work nicely with OS X, Samsung are a big no-no.

    Most Nokia Series60 and E series phones play nice with OS X in my experience. Actually, most Symbian phones seem to sync under OS X...

    Some S40 nokia's a nono

    I had a 6265 at one point and iSync hated it. Seems to work great with the V3c RAZR and my current Motorola Q.

    Palm phones work great IMHO. But also WinMo phones when you get The Missing Sync software.
