iSync failure

Q. I've been syncing my Symbian smartphone happily to my Mac for over a month, yet all of a sudden the iSync has started failing, with error: “[Nokia N97 mini] Connection to the phone failed. Please make sure that your phone is turned on.” I'm tech savvy and have tried power cycling both phone and Mac. What's next?

Beware the Trash effect!

Q. In an attempt to work out why my microSD card was full, I connected my smartphone to my Mac in 'Disk Transfer' mode. Aha - I found a load (Gigabytes!) of old music files from when I used to sync my phone with a Windows PC. I then deleted the root directory containing all these files and.... it seems that the disk is still full! Obviously, there's something going wrong in the counting, but what, and how do I fix it?

Sony Ericsson Update Service problems

Q. I have a Sony Ericsson UIQ 3 smartphone and am having trouble updating its firmware. I've downloaded the required Sony Ericsson Update wizard but it doesn't want to talk to my smartphone. A support line advised me to 'disable my firewall' but I don't want to do that. Help!

Last ditch cures for battery charging/power on problems

Q. My new Nokia smartphone has turned off by itself. I thought it was the battery and I tried to charge it but the phone didn't show any sign that it was plugged in. I tried to turn it on again but it only showed a white screen and after 2 sec turned off again. Will flashing it to the latest firmware help to solve the problem?
