Add iSync support for Sony Ericsson k770i Phones
As per usual, phone support for new phones can be added to iSync by tweaking the information in PhonePlugins. This was done on OSX 10.4.11 (iSync 2.4) as follows. Copy the SonyEricsson-K790.phoneplugin (which you'll find in Applications » iSync.app » Control-click and Show Package Contents » Contents » PlugIns » ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice » Contents » PlugIns) to ~/Library/PhonePlugins/ (create directory if it's not there).

Rename the file to K770.phoneplugin, and edit the plist files within to be for the 770 not 790. I also got the VendorID (0x0fce) and ProductID (0xd0b7) by connecting the phone by USB and looking in System Profiler. This information was placed in the MetaClasses.plist file in the com.apple.usb.vendorif-modelid string.

In editing the plist files, I followed these instructions. I quit iSync, re-loaded it, then tried to add my phone and successfully synched my contacts. I have not tried my calendar yet, so YMMV.

Alternatively, you can get a fully tested, fully supported and easily installed iSync Plugin (with correct icons) from here (along with plugins for dozens of other Sony Ericsson phones).

Yep but they come with a hefty pricetag for basically a bunch of altered plists...
I did this for my k260 and it works...

I'm too cheap to pay for a plugin when the phone will be supported in iSync sooner or later.
