thinking of getting this phone. BUT as per lots of discussions here I am concerned abt isnyc and bluetooth. All I want is to trnfr music to my phone. Apple has been frustrating enough but kept going. Still new to it.. HELP pls
just edit MetaClasses.plist in the package and duplicate 6280 to 6288. (/Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/PhoneModelsSync/Contents/Resources/MetaClasses.plist)
to be honest - I've just placed the text from 6280 replacing 6280 with 6288 (only left 6280.tiff).
6288 is small improvement only to that model and this method gets isync working. oryginal file was backup'ed for security, but - it's works. enjoy.
as a technophobe I'm amazed I've got this far - I've just got a nokia 6288 and want to sync it to my mac. Have read your tip, but I can only to get to the metaclasses.plist when I'm using the "add" option under the "iSync Info" page. Can you please tell me how I get there so as to edit it to 6288? And do I still leave the 6280 copy there?
It's worth noting that iSync won't let you copy music on the phone. For that, just connect the phone up with the USB cable and use data transfer mode. Then it'll appear like a removable drive and you can just drag-and-drop music files onto it.
It should play MP3 and AAC files, including files imported through iTunes - but things bought from the iTunes Music Store won't work unless they're the new 'Plus' files with no DRM.
You can also download music onto your phone using the bluetooth feature with your mac. I find this so handy.
1. Enable bluetooth on your phone 2. Search the phone with the bluetooth app on your mac 3. It will find the phone then give you a pass number 4. Enter that into your phone to pair the two 5. Open up bluetooth app on your mac (appears in the top menu bar on RHS)and choose browse device 6. You can then see all the files on your phone and upload more by clicking on the send button.
No software or downloads are needed. It just works.
Re. transfering music files, I tired just putting a USB cable in and copying on data transfer mode, but whenever I try to copy files over it just says it can't because each folder I try to copy to is "locked".
Is there something else I need to do? Like modify system files, crack something on the phone, sell my ******** mac and just buy a PC instead...?
When I connect the 6288 to my mac with the USB cable, the phone recognizes that it's connected, but the computer is completely oblivious... nothing comes up in Finder or on the desktop, so there's no way of transferring files. Bluetooth looked more promising, because I can acces the phone from my mac through Bluetooth just fine, but whenever I try to transfer files in either direction, the transfer gets canceled when there are just a few bytes left to go, saying "Operation Failed: Bad Request" and the data just disappears. Any tips?
