X700 and iSync == TRUE!

I have gotten the X700 to work with iSync.
Sometimes there are a few issues with things like the naming of various fields (mobile, home, work etc), but the rest works perfectly.

Check out the solution here:
angelhill.net/life/archives/000138.html

The quick summary:
You should know how to work the Terminal for this. If you don't, learn that first.
CD into /Library/Application Support/SyncService/501
501 is the numeric value of your username, you can find it by using the id command.

Once you are there, edit the file SymbianConduitDefaults.plist, it should actually not exist, so you will be creating a new file. Into this file, paste the following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist
PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
"http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<array>
<dict>
<key>kBTEmptyFolderIsOkayReally</key>
<false/>
<key>kNSSyncDeviceID</key>
<string>xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx</string>
<key>kNSSyncDeviceName</key>
<string>X700</string>
<key>kNSSyncDeviceShouldSlowSyncCalendars</key>
<false/>
<key>kNSSyncDeviceShouldSlowSyncContacts</key>
<false/>
<key>kNSSyncDeviceUseCalendars</key>
<true/>
<key>kNSSyncDeviceUseContacts</key>
<true/>
<key>kSymbianConduitDayRangeKey</key>
<integer>14</integer>
<key>kSymbianConduitModelKey</key>
<string>3650</string>
<key>kSymbianHasDeviceSynced</key>
<true/>
</dict>
</array>
</plist>

Replace xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx with the MAC ID of your phone. This can be found in System Preferences/Bluetooth/Devices.

Save the file. Next step is delete all pairings between your computer and phone, and pair it again. Then start iSync and sync that stuff. The synchronization even includes contact pictures and colors of your iCal calendars! Great stuff.

I got the idea from:

I just got my X700 today and tried syncing it with OSX 10.3.7 and iSync 1.5

I followed the directions and only got it to sync 1 out of 10 tries. However, it didn't sync address book photos like it's supposed to with symbian devices.

any ideas?

The problem is that a new update came out for Mac OS X and then the "fix" was broken.

I have not had the time to get around to fixing it, been really busy. But as soon as I do figure it out, I'll post here and on my website.

well I'm somewhat glad it's a system update that broke the fix and not me, I hope you get a work around soon

i tried that mobile sync site but it only accepts vcard 2.1, which doesn't support contact photos, and i can't figure out a way to upload them to the site otherwise

I am sorry to say I was unable to fix the problem with the iSync 1.5 bugfix...
The solution however is Tiger, which supports sync with X700 out of the box (although it doesnt work as well as it should, but still).

So if anyone wants to sync, better shell out 120 us dollars or whatever currency you use, for a copy of tiger. Smart huh?
