10.4: Add iSync support for Nokia E70 Phones
I bought a new Nokia E70 recently, and of course, iSync doesn't support it yet, so I did a little hacking and got it working. You can read all the details, including info on fixing a timezone offset issue, in this entry on my blog. Read on for the required edits to MetaClasses.plist.

In the Finder, control-click on the iSync application and choose Show Package Contents. Then navigate into Contents -> Plugins -> ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice -> Contents -> Plugins -> PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin -> Contents -> Resources. In that folder, modify MetaClasses.plist (make a backup first!) using the below code.
<key>com.nokia.E70</key>
<dict>
  <key>Identification</key>
  <dict>
    <key>com.apple.cgmi+cgmm</key>
    <string>Nokia+Nokia E70-1</string>
    <key>com.apple.gmi+gmm</key>
    <string>Nokia+Nokia E70-1</string>
  </dict>
  <key>InheritsFrom</key>
  <array>
    <string>family.com.nokia.serie60v2.3</string>
    </array>
  <key>Services</key>
  <array>
    <dict>
      <key>ServiceName</key>
      <string>com.apple.model</string>
      <key>ServiceProperties</key>
      <dict>
        <key>ModelIcon</key>
        <string>NOKE70.tiff</string>
        <key>ModelName</key>
        <string>E70</string>
      </dict>
    </dict>
  </array>
</dict>
Save the file, and you should be set. More details on my above-referenced blog entry...

Excellent, now I'm just waiting for Nokia to release the US (850 mHz) version of this phone. Looks like a great device!

The possibility of using the E60 with
iSync is the same as for the E70, because the params of the E60 are similar to the E70

I created a quick icon for the E70. Rather rudimentary, but it does the trick until someone can spend some more time: NOKE70.tiff.

Everything works to the point where I am supposed to "modify MetaClasses.plist (make a backup first!) using the below code"

MetaClasses.plist can not be modified as far as I can tell. How and what part of the file would be modified?


Thank you for looking into this

Peter
