I have just got a new Samsung E720 phone, it has the ability to play music tracks and I'd like to connect it to my laptop to download some of my music but I can't find out if it is Mac compatible. The Samsung brand is not mentioned at all on the ISync compatible devices list I have just found, does that mean I have messed up with my choice of phone and it won't be?

Is there any definitive way to find out?

I can't just connect it and check because although the phone is Bluetooth enabled, my laptop is not (it is about a year old) so I will have to buy a Bluetooth module. I am happy to do this if it will then work but I'd rather not spend the money and find it doesn't work. Any suggestions welcome!

Thanks

    Hmm if its not on the list of compatible devices then this could be risky. A good idea would be to go to an apple store, and see if the bluetooth connection wizard can detect your phone. If it does, then check to see if it lets you send files to the phone. If this works, then you should be fine, and you wouldent even have to use isync. Iv got a feeling if you just use the OS x bluetooth wizard thing, all should work fine, and any where with a mac with blue tooth you could test this. Or even if you want buy a dongle, then if it ends up not working then simply take it back...

    There maybe another piece of software that you can use. I have a Samsung phone with Sprint service and when I have question with that setup I go to http://www.sprintusers.com My phone is not bluetooth, but I can sync it using a USB cable and some software I found linked from Sprint Users. Anyway try doing a google search
