Bluetooth Blues

After suffering with an ageing Nokia 6280 for sometime, I finally got a new phone yesterday, a Nokia E51. It is beautiful, it has a lot of beautiful features, but… it can’t synchronise with my Mac. My previous model had no problems at all, but for some reason, iSync doesn’t support E51.

I can’t use the Nokia PC Suite to synchronise because that only caters to Windows, and the Nokia website doesn’t offer any alternatives. [This is the point where I show a big middle-finger to the bastards in Nokia, and ask them why the hell their mac-using market doesn’t matter to them.]

There are solutions, but that requires money. 9.90 Euros to be exact. Why the hell should I fork out money to make something work that should inherently work on its own?

  2. Write to Nokia’s customer service and ask them to help?
    They certainly have the means if you have the persuasion. 😉
