anyone? ... anyone ...?
For the address book, you can export all of your contacts on your Mac as a vCard. Then you can just run the USB to your phone, and drag the vCard onto it. From there, go to your Contacts on the phone, press the menu, and hit "Import/Export". Import the vCard and it should work.
I realize it's not the best solution for syncing, but depending on your needs, it may help.
I suppose I could buy one of those cheap little plug in cards and "sync" with that ... except they get lost/stolen/bent/wet/"unavailable(?)" or the slots get corroded/burned/"unavailable(?)" ... or my system(s) just doesn't have a slot (like the Mac Minis, I have 4).
Way too much skull sweat invested in this so far ...
So, I did finally get some action by converting to vCard (export from Address Book via Blue Tooth) ... BUT only 47 contacts of more than 250 available came across ... WTF?
Missing Sync is the program to use if you want to do it on a regular basis.
If you don't mind syncing via Google...
Spanning Sync does 2 way syncing from Mac to Google and back but is a 'set and forget' kind of application.
I've not had to adjust it at all since I installed it (27 March 2009 apparently lol).
Deals with iCal and Address Book nicely.
For media I use the paid version of Salling Media Sync that syncs iTunes playlists, iPhotos albums etc
im confused, why would anyone need a sync program when google syncs in the cloud with Mac email, contacts and the calendar.
I'm I missing something or not understanding something here?
Perhaps for syncing with iTunes playlists?
Google Music works fine for my needs.
Any new song I add to Itunes via purchase or off of a DVD is added to my Google Music in about 5/10 minutes.
What, exactly, are you looking to sync? Sync by itself could mean anything. From context, it's clear that you want contacts sync. Calendar? Notes? Tasks? Music? Media?
Local sync. Don't assume that everyone's setup/preference is identical to yours and you'll avoid such confusion.
I wasn't assuming. Which is why I asked, "I'm I missing something or not understanding something here?"
The OP, in my opinion, is not clear and the only way to find out what the OP wants/needs is to inquire.
