I was disappointed to see that the new Nokia 6086 under iSync. Knowing that it's probably the same BT protocol as every other Nokia out there I decided to go digging.

Well...it works with a simple text edit.

sudo vi /Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin/Contents/Resources/MetaClasses.plist

Add this block somewhere.. I added it right after the 6021 entry.

Code:
        <key>com.nokia.6086</key>
        <dict>          
                <key>Identification</key>
                <dict>
                        <key>com.apple.cgmi+cgmm</key>
                        <string>Nokia+Nokia 6086</string>
                        <key>com.apple.gmi+gmm</key>
                        <string>Nokia+Nokia 6086</string>
                </dict>
                <key>InheritsFrom</key>
                <array>         
                        <string>family.com.nokia.series40.bus.bt</string>
                </array>        
                <key>Services</key>
                <array>

This can probably be extended to most any new and unsupported Nokia that based on either the S40 or S60 style phone.
 
Thank you!!!! I'm getting one of these tomorrow and I can't wait to sync it with my PM G5 when I get back to college!!!

iSync details

I searched for these details before getting this phone, but couldn't find them, so I want to include them here for others' reference.

In terms of iSync, once adding in the above information, I was able to sync both iCal calendars and Address Book information including email and addresses.

It looks like the phone puts all-day events in as being from 8am-8am, which is a little odd but works.
 
I know its been a while since your post, but I still want to say thanks. You rock! It took a grand total of a minute or two to get my wife's new phone connected and sync'd. Thanks again!
 
Great Tip, and here's how to make the icon correct

This tip worked great for me about 6 months ago, but I have since upgraded to Leopard. A google search brought me here again, so I can say this tip works for both 10.4 and 10.5.

To fix the icon that shows up in iSync to match the 6086:

  1. Copy this image into /Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin/Contents/Resources/
    (this is the folder in which MetaClasses.plist resides)
  2. Modify the your entry in the MetaClasses.plist file.

    Change
    Code:
    <string>NOK6021.tiff</string>
    to
    Code:
    <string>NOK6086.tiff</string>
 
Awesome! Thx a lot
So simple...
