Copy Address Book contacts to a Nokia 6620
Authored by: simoneHints on Nov 24, '04 04:06:00AM

As far as I know most nokia symbian phones work natively with macOsX, moreover probably even the 6620 can work with it, but simply the iSynch conduit module for symbian phones simply misses it in the supported phones list.

A colleague of mine was an early buyer of the 6600 last year here in italy and he had it working, even if it wasn't still officially supported, patching the conduit or getting a patched one and replacing it, there is something about this around in symbian forums and similar, googling around a bit should be enough to find details. This is the page he referred to:

Copy Address Book contacts to a Nokia 6620

are you sure? My understanding is that the older nokia phones use "mRouter" for the sync process, and the new phones use the SyncML for the sync. There's differences between these two protocol which is why the new phones don't work naive as mentioned in the original hint...

The 6620 isn't so much an updated phone for the US market, as it's a 6600 w/ EDGE and the ATT/Cingular low GSM freq (850 or something like that) and a few minor mods. The 6600 is the T-Mobile USA offering. This 'quad' band system isn't likely to change. The 6600 definitely uses the mrouter protocol to its advantage (1: that's how the symbian kit for windows works, 2: activating the mrouter kit in the sync framework results in a MUCH higher throughput via the bt interface on older isync versions). The new phone SHOULD sync because both the 6600 AND the 6620 can:

"Synchronize your contacts and calendar using SyncML or Nokia PC Suite5"

Unfortunately a lot of things aren't currently running on the 6620 that should be so I'd hope for nokia to get a firmware revision out soon (too bad we don't have service centres on every street).

I think it's a matter of the phone being updated to the db and 'support for non-conforming' phones being on so that even if you get the wrong phone model and icon (w/in the symbain 7s 60 series platform), you can still get a sync.

There may be an easier way to do this w/ fexplorer, but the contact set is horrible. This is a good tip for people who can't get sync.

Check allaboutsymbian for more on this phone and syncing.
