Add iSync support for the Sony Ericsson W300i
Authored by: JoolsG4 on Mar 21, '07 03:52:17PM
It is REALLY not advisable (or necessary) to modify files INSIDE the iSync application. Additional phone support files for iSync should live in the '[Your Mac HD]/Library/PhonePlugins' folder, as Apple intended. iSync will automatically load plugins stored in this location.

Also, the W300i is a much newer phone than the 'syncml-phones-2005.bt' code on which this 'hack' is based. Therefore, following this tip will not sync all the Address Book data that is possible to be synced to the phone. (For instance, multiple email addresses, Home & Work addresses into correct fields).

For a 'proper' iSync Phone Plugin that does not modify the iSync application, that syncs all available phone fields, and provides syncing progress feedback on the phones screen, see:

http://mobile.feisar.com/plugins.html

There's also iSync Phone Plugins for the Sony Ericsson K320, K510, K550, K618, K810, W610, W700, W710, W850, W880, Z610, Z550, Z710, Z558 and V630

There is also a free solution: you can get an iSync free plugin for the W300i here: [link:]http://blog.joelambert.co.uk/?p=135.

I have also created a detailed icon (with the black model and the white one) available here [link:]http://www.atlink.it/~conti/2006/12/14/sony-ericsson-w300i/, take a look also to comments for some others installations tips/hints.

Have a nice day. :-)
