    In step #6 is says “Start iSync, and the Nokia 6300 should be supported.” Where is the start button for iSync?

    How do you start iSync?

    What a great piece of work, you have made using my MacBook Pro even more of a joy. My contacts and calendars have all been iSync-ed to my 6300 and so quickly, wow!

    Nokia 6300 iSync Plugin

    I am really not an expert in IT but I did it based on the explanation.

    I can’t believe it and I don’t know how it works but my adressbook and my calender synchronises.

    Having before a Nokia E50 (with which I was completly disappointed) I now got an Nokia 6300. But the isynch for my Mac (Generation Jan 2009) didn’t work.

    Now it’s working. Thank you very much. Bernhard

    Last questions:
    1. How can I delete the tiff file from my E50 in the isynch Menü?
    I couldn’t find the tiff file but the picture is still there.

    2. Question concerning my understanding:
    If I use the Bluetooth function of my Nokia 6300 both Hardware (Mac and Nokia 6300) get to know each other but the there is no synch. Only with using isync there is an exchange of data. I don’t understand this.

    I’ve just downloaded your plugin, and it’s worked like a dream. We’re all in your debt, Klaus.

    However, I’m new to synching my phone and my Mac, and would be grateful for a piece of advice.

    In order that I avoid the computer trying to send back my whole .Mac addressbook to the phone (or to a new phone I may buy)at some future point when I I opened my .Mac addressbook, created a folder I called Nokia6300, and clicked to synch my phone with that folder alone.
    When it was done, I found that the new folder was empty, and the contacts from my phone were accessible on my Mac only if I clicked on All in my Addressbook. So if I synch next time with my current phone, or need to download my numbers to a new phone, how do I make sure it’s only the numbers that are sent over from my .Mac addressbook, instead of all the data it contains.
    Thanks in advance for all advice offered.

  26. Clemens says:

    Hi Klaus

    I’m having problems with your plug-in when using it on a Network Account on Leopard Server. i.e. the user’s homedir is on a file server.

    Adding the phone to iSync works fine, but every sync fails (towards the end) with a unknown error.

    Any ideas? Thank you very much in any case for your work.

    – Clemens

  32. Thomas says:

    Thanks for the plugin! It saved my day!
    I just sent my iPhone to repair, and had to use my wife’s old Nokia 6300. I previously installed the plugin manually, so I knew it would take me about an hour – which I didn’t have. But thanks to this plugin, my address book was synced in 10 mins!!
    Thanks again!!…

  33. daneeeh says:

    I’m very glad to tell you that I was able to sync my little, old, bricky and simple Nokia 2760 thanks to your files, all I did was to replace 6300 with 2760 in all the files of the plugin. Voila!

  34. Bongo says:

    Thanks, I owe you a beer :)

    Thanks for this plugin. So easy to sync all contacts. Would have been a pain in the ass to sync it without iSync. Cheers.

  54. Mike Barnkob says:

    Hi guys,

    If you are using OSX 10.7 or later, you need to download the iSync application since Apple has discontinued it after 10.6. You can find it here:
