6. Exchange Data with Computers > Synchronize Phone Data with a Mac

Synchronize Phone Data with a Mac

Synchronize your Nokia Series 60 smartphone with a Mac OS X computer.

The Nokia PC Suite does not run on Mac computers. Fortunately, iSync, the default data synchronization program on Mac OS X, supports synchronization with some Nokia Series 60 devices. Please note that you cannot synchronize Series 40 devices with a Mac computer via iSync. Please refer to “Synchronize Phone Data with Any Computer” [Hack #38] for generic options to synchronize any computer with Nokia phones, including Series 40 phones.

Tip

You can find a complete list of devices supported by iSync at http://www.apple.com/isync/devices.html. Even if your device is not listed, it is still possible to hack iSync configuration files to get around artificial limitations imposed by Apple. For instance, to set up an unsupported Nokia 9300 with iSync, visit this site: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20050422125043439.
