I have an old Panasonic X700 running Symbian 60 version 7 which worked perfectly well with iSync in Leopard 10.5. The only problem I have is that the synchronisation fails. I have removed and re-connected the device in Bluetooth and the connection itself does work. I can do file transfers using Bluetooth. I have monitored the iSync connection in Bluetooth and initial connection is made successfully. However, during sync I get the error message: An unexpected error occurred. Device “Name” synchronization failed. Since updating to Snow Leopard, has anyone managed to get a Symbian 60 based phone to successfully iSync? If so, please advise detailed settings. As additional info, the update from Tiger to Leopard with the same phone went without any intervention whatsoever.

    I am having a similar problem with an N78. Reinstalled the Nokia supplied plug in. Bluetooth connects effectively. iSync reports the synch failed.

    Have you all already applied 10.6.1?

    Try that, and come back with your results.
    I had problems (different kind) with iSync in SL, but 10.6.1 seems to have corrected them.

    My Palm Centro is also having major problems with Snow Leopard, which refuses to allow it a USB connection. Can anyone help out?

    Sync services had problems in Leopard but I am finding that Snow Leopard has introduced some new problems. I'm not sure how this is ever going to get fixed as third party developers have had quite the time with this system since it was implemented and as an end user so too have I. It tends to work relatively well as long as I use say iCal and Addressbook but once I venture off into a third party product I encounter problems that I've reported to all sources involved but if anything Snow Leopard has actually created at least a couple of new issues that I've encountered.

    I am having exactly the same problem after upgrading to SL. My phone is a Nokia 3110c and previously had never had an issue syncing over bluetooth.

    For what is worth, the error log I am getting can be seen here:

    I am desperate and running out of ideas; have googled the problem and nothing seems to work.

    Would greatly appreciate if anyone could help.
