    What is good free and low cost software/apps I can use to sync calendar, music, photos, contaxts [is there anything else to sync?] with my Android and Mac?

    Can syncing go both ways?

    Samsung Kies (official Samsung PC/Mac Suite software) or MyPhoneExplorer. Or you can just go cloud and not need anything anymore for syncing.

    Kies would be your best option, considering it is released by Samsung themselves and it can work on Mac and PC :)

    Thank you. I downloaded Kies. I see the phone calendar displaying on my Mac.

    Its nice to use it and it shows up on my phone calendar

    What about Information I enter into my mac iCalendar? Is there a way to sync THAT information into the phoen calendar? or, is that what I need to use google cloud for?

    I like my phone and believe it to be better than iphone, BUT simple syncing, back up and viruses will make me get the iphone. I have to decide today :p, but I really want to be able to keep the droid.

    Simply syncing won't happen, since you use iCalendar. Apple simply refuses to play along with other brands, making their services unable to sync directly to non-Apple devices, unlike Windows Outlook which can sync to any device and has a lot of third party sync capability (iOS, Symbian, Android, dumbphones, etc). You either have to ditch iCalendar, or look for a way to sync iCalendar to your Gmail calendar so that it will sync to your phone.

    Viruses is not a problem on Android. In fact, Android viruses don't exist.
