Sometimes life is hard and you are forced to find a solution for a specific problem. The Internet gives us the opportunity to share some of these solutions for other people. So…during a dj gig I got my almost-dead iPhone stolen. Not a big issue as the battery was almost dead and it was an old model.
And I obviously have my address book backed up automatically by Itunes. So…which phone should I get? I needed a quick solution.
I’ll buy the iPhone 4g as soon as it will be available, but it’s more a cool gadget than a necessary tool for me as I always have my macbook at hand. And I found the iPhone great for everything, but not so much as a pure cell phone: the battery really didn’t cut it for me. Less than one day receiving lots of calls.
I rushed to buy a simple and rather cheap Nokia phone, this model is very interesting as it has GPS yet in a small and attractive package. Isync does not support natively this phone. Thanks to this tutorial and Apple’s Xcode tools I’ve created a compatible PhonePlugin for Apple’s Isync. It took me 5 minutes and it has just synced my address book and iCal calendar.
Just download, unzip, and put into your /Library/PhonePlugins folder. Create the folder if it’s not there. The plugin comes unsupported, so I hope it works for you. I am using MacOs 10.6 Snow Leopard.
