Well, it would appear that this tip doesn't work on O2 branded K750i's.

No idea why, but others in the Apple Support Discussions have reported it too.

It must be a bug in the O2 firmware as unbranded K750i's work fine.

Major pain for me because I sync my Contact and Calendars very often.

Hey Jools. Try it with Phone Agent. I have found some irregularities where PA does not work quite right with the v800, but most things work okay.

I am pretty sure you have tried to export them as a vcal or ical already right?

Yeah, if I export the .ics file from iCal the phone sticks it in the 'Other' folder. If I rename it to .vcs (which apparently is what it should be) the phone just ignores it.

It should not ignore .vcs at all. This is the default for calendar info. Can you send them from your k700 to the k750?

On a side note, my wife just got a Nokia 6680 for free today from my friend in Kuwait. I have to say, it is a nice phone.

P.S. This is the k750 and iSync thread. Not the P910 and iSync thread.

I second that. Its hard enough for Mac user's never getting any support from their service provider for cell phones; make this a sticky please mods!!

Jools; I'm not a Mac user yet nor have a SE anylonger - still looking for just the right one; however you deserve BIG TIME props, much ReeeeeSpeeeCT for this script! I've pointed several user's who've either used or modified your script to get other phones to work.

Excellent job. Job .... is Steve Jobs listening .... and maybe an income outta it as well for spare time tinkering, huh Jools??!!!

Cheers.

As I have said before, Jools is the man. He has helped me out plenty of times.

Nothing works! I have spent the day trying. And now it is not even possible to open the phone from Bluetooth. Is there any way to start over with the old settings?

If you want help you'll have to give a bit more information than just "Nothing works"?

What did you try?
What version of Mac OS X are you using?
Can you pair the phone?
Can you send files to the phone via Bluetooth File Exchange?
What exactly doesn't work?

Hey! Ive just got my new K750i and it appears to pair up in bluetooth. Is there anyway to make it appear as a removeable harddrive on the mac? I've read some posts that it works on a pc but when i plug my usb cable from phone to mac it just charges.

I am sorry i understand it is not easy to help me without any information. I downloaded the two files, put them according to the instructions. When i pair the phone its seems to be working but i can not send files to the phone. I sync finds the phone but as soon as the phone asks if it is ok to open up to the computer it just stops. Could not sync to k750i...
I put the old .plist back but it is still not possible to send files to the phone. I am using a powerbook G4 and ver 10.4.1.

I am very thankfull for any suggestions, as you understand i am not very good at this.
