Re: mac osx with nokia 6288

hey guys

the 6288 is simply to run with isync.

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.

regards

Martin

Re: mac osx with nokia 6288

Hi there Martin

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?

Would love to know....

cheers

Richard

Hi Martin,

I changed the MetaClasses.plist from 6280 to 6288 but isync still cannot see my phone. Do I have to set something on my phone?? Or something else I have overlooked??

Any help?

Re: mac osx with nokia 6288

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.

Re: mac osx with nokia 6288

Ill give it a shot with the cable. But the thing id like to do is sync it for all my contacts and calendar. I dont care too much for music myself as I have a iPod for that.


You guys ever tried Phone Director ?

http://www.macmedia.sk/download.htm

I can see my contact and calendar through this software, so its a start. But its 40$CAN.

hi schmickey
did you ever get a response from your post? i just got a 6288 and am stressing about getting my contacts and calendar off my mac 0sx via isync as it is not supported.

i tried the metaclasses.plist suggestion but it didn't work and i got someone to help too.

i'm starting to regret getting this phone - it was a hassle to unlock it and now i cant get my numbers on it!

please help!

Re: mac osx with nokia 6288

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: mac osx with nokia 6288

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...?

Re: mac osx with nokia 6288

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?
