I just bought a Nokia 6620 cell/cam, nice if only a little too big. Anyway I understand I can move pics off the cell to my iBook via bluetooth, but how about getting pics onto the cell and for that matter, copy some songs from my iTunes collection onto the cell? I have the USB cable also, which allows Tiger's Network preference to see the cell, but as for setting it up, I'm at a loss. Hey! While we're at it can I upload some video to the cell too?

Yes, you can transfer files to the 6620 from a Mac but only via bluetooth. The data cable is only for use with a PC.

I have the bluetooth icon in the menu bar. When I want to transfer files to/from the 6620 I click it and select send file. You can also browse device, select the 6620 and do it that way too (IIRC).

That's the only way to transfer MP3s to the phone from a Mac.

Also, are you using the Dlink USB bluettoth adapter?

Follow the instructions in iSync to pair the devices. Then you can update your contacts, calendars, and more with one click via bluetooth.

Once paired, everything becomes deadly simple. You can rightclick on any file to send it, or click on the file once and then send via the other services under the File menu, or... many ways.

For a brilliant list of all the applications that have now opened up to you because you chose a Series 60/Symbian phone, go here.

Nokia 6620 Users: Welcome to Symbia! (http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=580948)

See especially Salling Clicker (you now have a remote pointing device for most of your applications, movies, iTunes, etc.) and bluephonelite (manage your text messages easily, and when someone phones you while you are on the computer, their number shows up in grey across your screen, entirely customizable)... Just two programme examples out of thousands.

There are unlimited applications, themes, ringtones, backgrounds, wallpapers, etc. All you need to do with most of these is send them to the phone, which will ask if you want to install them on your phone memory or memory card, and then will do the rest for you. Like I said, it's painfully easy.

Thanks for the responses so far guys! I left my cell at work so I'll try this this stuff tomorrow.

No, the latest generation of iBooks have Bluetooth built-in. :D

I just want to express my thanks to those who offered their insight regarding cell phones and Macs. I'm enjoying my Nokia 6620 a lot! Associating .mp3 sound bites, or songs as ringtones and pictures from my iPhoto library to specific contacts is just hilarious. With QuickTime Pro I'm converting movie trailers and my own videos to play on my cell and otherwise, sending/receiving audio, photo and video effortlessly using bluetooth. Checking my calendar schedule (synced to iCal) is easy. I've used the voice recorder instead of taking notes at a short meeting... I can go on and on! And, I haven't even used it to text message, communicate by email or surf the net yet. I'm very impressed with what this phone can do!

Now that I have had a chance to play with it, I can see why Apple is not in a rush to make cell phone. Why reinvent the wheel? But then again, we all probably thought the same when Apple made an innocent little .mp3 player called the iPod. ;)
