10.4: Add Nokia 9300 support to iSync 2.3 Phones
This is how I went about adding support for my Nokia 9300 under iSync 2.3 in 10.4.7. First go to /Applications -> iSync -> (Control-click and choose Show Package Contents) -> Contents -> PlugIns -> ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice -> Contents -> Plugins -> Nokia-9300i.phoneplugin -> Contents -> Resources.

Now make a duplicate of MetaClasses.plist so you have a backup if something goes wrong. Open MetaClasses.plist with TextEdit,co or any other standard text editor.

I have to warn you that the way I went about this removes support for the Nokia 9300i, and adds support for 9300. Replace this code (at the end of the file):
<key>com.nokia.9300i</key>
  <dict>
    <key>Identification</key>
    <dict>
      <key>com.apple.usb.vendorid-modelid</key>
      <string>0x0421/0x0453</string>
      <key>com.apple.cgmi+cgmm</key>
      <string>Nokia+Nokia 9300i</string>
    </dict>
    <key>InheritsFrom</key>
    <array>
      <string>family.com.nokia.9300i</string>
    </array>
    <key>Services</key>
    <array>
      <dict>
        <key>ServiceName</key>
        <string>com.apple.model</string>
        <key>ServiceProperties</key>
        <dict>
          <key>ModelName</key>
          <string>9300i</string>
          <key>CompanyName</key>
          <string>Nokia</string>
          <key>ModelIcon</key>
          <string>com.nokia.9300i.tiff</string>
        </dict>
      </dict>
    </array>
  </dict>
</dict>
...with this code...
<key>com.nokia.9300</key>
  <dict>
    <key>Identification</key>
    <dict>
      <key>com.apple.usb.vendorid-modelid</key>
      <string>0x0421/0x0453</string>
      <key>com.apple.cgmi+cgmm</key>
      <string>Nokia+Nokia 9300</string>
    </dict>
    <key>InheritsFrom</key>
    <array>
      <string>family.com.nokia.9300i</string>
    </array>
    <key>Services</key>
    <array>
      <dict>
        <key>ServiceName</key>
        <string>com.apple.model</string>
        <key>ServiceProperties</key>
        <dict>
          <key>ModelName</key>
          <string>9300</string>
          <key>CompanyName</key>
          <string>Nokia</string>
          <key>ModelIcon</key>
          <string>com.nokia.9300i.tiff</string>
        </dict>
      </dict>
    </array>
  </dict>
</dict>
[robg adds: You shouldn't technically need to remove the other code; just add the above as a new section, as in the other Phone hints, and you should be good to go.]

Actually you do need to 'replace' the 9300i portion with the 9300 section provided - then it works! Mac OS 10.4.7 is required too which includes iSync 2.3 - upgrade avail. from apple.com. This is an AWESOME tip that WORKS! Thanks to whomever submitted it because Cingular and Apple were NO HELP.

Synchronizing NOKIA 9300 - Mac OS X 10.4.8 - iSync.app 2.3 - A GUI Way!

Control-click on iSync.app (version 2.3) / Show Package Contents

Open folder "Contents"

Open folder "PlugIns"

Open folder "ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice"

Open folder "Contents"

Open folder "PlugIns"

Duplicate the folder "Nokia-9300i.phoneplugin" and rename it as "Nokia-9300.phoneplugin"

Open the new folder "Nokia-9300.phoneplugin"

Open folder "Contents"

Open file "info.plist" with TextEdit.app, find ALL "9300i" and replace them with "9300", Save

Open folder "Resources"

Rename the "com.nokia.9300i.tiff" as "com.nokia.9300.tiff"

Open file "MetaClasses.plist" with TextEdit.app, find ALL "9300i" and replace them with "9300", Save

Close all

You are done! Happy Synchronizing! :-)

Hi salonikie
unfortunately it does not work. First it says no device found add devise. but no devise found with scan.
The 9300 says syncronisation failed.

geia sou ki esena!

you have first to delete the prior 9300 from your iSync

(in the iSync window click the prior device 9300, then go to iSync menu/Devices/Remove Device)
