iSync seems to wipe my speed dials on N95 – Annoying – Anybody got a solution???

Try upgrading your N95 firmware through nokia software. This may help

ok – seems like I managed to fix this after trying 3 different plugins. The plugin from the Nokia site failed to work. The plugin here: http://tnkgrl.wordpress.com/2007/04/04/nokia-n95-isync-plugin/
also failed.

The one linked from this site worked. However I needed to follow the steps below to get it running:

1. open the bluetooth preferences and delete any previous pairing between the phone and the Mac
2. set the phones bluetooth on and to discoverable
3. in the mac bluetooth preferences panel, click +, select mobile phone and ‘continue’ to search for your phone
4. select your phone from the list (hopefully you have named it something logical) click ‘continue’ and select iSync as a minimum
5. click ‘continue’ and follow the steps to pair your devices
6. when you see the pairing success message and iSync opens to show your device click ‘quit’ on the bluetooth setup assistant
7. in the open iSync pane, select your preferred options for sync’ing
8. on your phone, go to the bluetooth settings & paired devices, select your mac in the list and set pairing to be automatically authorised
9. go to iSync on the mac and click the big shiny ‘Sync Devices’ button
10. sit back and relax 🙂

“it just works”…. some of the time it just needs a little prod in the right direction 😉

I just got the n95 today and everything is going wrong. I tried everything, but nothing worked. I tried the plug in from the nokia page and it did not work. What plug in do u mean frustrated??? It always says that it is sending 1 of 1 contacts and then it stops and says that an error has occured. I tried it via bluetooth and USB.
So my mac does recognize the n95, but then the synchronization just fails. I dont know what to do??

Hey frustated,

your explanation was the best, it does finally work with my N95. For all other users: read the message well, follow each step and be patiened.
