10.4: Add iSync support for Nokia 6670b (850mhz) Apps
Tiger only hintI was excited to see that with the launch of Tiger, iSync 2.0 was going to have native support for a lot more Symbian devices. However, to my disappointment, my 6670 didn't work with iSync. I was puzzled for a little while, but ended up figuring it out. iSync2 supports the 6670, but not the 6670b, which is the 850mhz model of the handset for North American 850mhz/1900mhz networks.

All you need to do is add a bit of code to iSync and you're good to go! Add the following code to /Applications: iSync.app: Contents: PlugIns: ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice: Contents: PlugIns: PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin: Contents: Resources: MetaClasses.plist:
<key>com.nokia.6670b</key>
<dict>
    <key>Identification</key>
    <dict>
        <key>com.apple.gmi+gmm</key>
        <string>Nokia+Nokia 6670b</string>
    </dict>
    <key>InheritsFrom</key>
    <array>
        <string>com.nokia.serie60v2.0</string>
    </array>
    <key>Services</key>
    <array>
        <dict>
            <key>ServiceName</key>
            <string>com.apple.model</string>
            <key>ServiceProperties</key>
            <dict>
               <key>ModelName</key>
               <string>6670b</string>
               <key>PhoneIcon</key>
               <string>NOK6670.tiff</string>
            </dict>
        </dict>
    </array>
</dict>
There you go! Hope that helps!

10.4: Add iSync support for Nokia 6670b (850mhz)

Hmm - that looks like what I need.
Except I'm on 10.3.9 and iSync1.5
When I look below /Applications/iSync.app/Contents the directory contains none of the files listed in the article. I've used AIX and Solaris a fair bit - so I'm happy to edit the files with vi - but I'm a newb to MacOs.
Anychance some genius can shed some light on this for me?
I got the Nokia 6670 because the iSync devices page said it was fully compatible.
Cheers
Art.

Not sure if this is the information you are looking for – but here are the steps to add the patch:

First delete the pairing of you mobile – and start fresh.

1) Application folder
2) Select iSync application
3) Right-mouse click and select "show package contents"
4) Follow the path in the instructions to get to the final file
5) When you get to final destination: MetaClasses.plist, right mouse click on it and select - open with TextEdit - from your Applications folder so you can read the file
6) Once opened in Textedit do a quick find/search for Nokia 6670, select and then paste the patch, replacing what is there ... just for the Nokia 6670 – if you are unsure make a copy of this and leave on desktop
7) Save the changes, exit all, reboot, re-pair your mobile then try to add your Nokia 6670 to iSync and see if the Agent downloads then allows you to sync.

Unfortunately for me this did not workgood luck though! Let me know if you need more help.

I cut and pasted in your patch - same one that Apple tech support emailed me actually - and I still cannot get my Nokia 6670b to work with iSync 2.0 on Tiger 10.4.1. They were stymied too (after 45 minutes of troubleshooting) and esc. my case number to the iSync engineers - so they say.

The Nokia 6670b I have pairs easily enough but i get the error message that the 6670b is not supported by iSync when i try to add the device. I can add my Nokia 6600 and the iSync agent downloads perfectly and can sync all contacts, appointments etc. so i know it is working in general.

Called Nokia Canada and they say I have the lastest firmware version: v4.0440.2 then 01-10-04 then RH-52.

Anyone have any other ideas to build on?

The above hint doesn't work with iSync 2.1. Through much trial and error, I changed the configuration file as such and it now works.

Thanks for all the groundwork help!
