Was ist so toll an einem Mac?

Die Frage lässt sich schlecht beantworten, weil es mehr ein Gefühl ist, dass vieles einfach etwas besser ist. Den Wechsel vor 8 Monaten von Vista zu Mac OS 10.5 bereue ich auf keinen Fall. Weiterlesen

Proper All-Day Events with iSync and Nokia E51

Proper All-Day Events with iSync and Nokia E51

n82-alldayevents-and-warning.pngHave you ever thought, why all-day events from iCal are synced via iSync as meetings from 0:00 till 23:59 on your Nokia E51 (or any other Symbian S60) mobile phone? While the Nokia calendar supports all-day events as “day note” (and also syncs to your mac properly!) there should be a way to change the behavior.

hasse.org wrote about this problem in his article “Fixing the Nokia N82 iSync Plug-In“. I used the instructions to change my E51 isync plugin.

Just copy the file from Nokia_E51_1v1-allday-phoneplugin.zip to /Library/PhonePlugins. Use at your own risk!

You might encounter sync problems. I personally reset my sync profile and soon ended up with duplicate entries for calendar and contacts. I you have the same problem, delete all calendar and contacts entries and reset your iSync-E51 connection.

Delete all calendar entries:

  • go to “month view”
  • choose “delete”
  • choose “all”

Delete all contacts:

  • choose “select >”
  • choose “all”
  • choose “delete”
