How to get your Nokia 6131/6126 to work with iSync (Mac) for free

September 23, 2006 by · 19 Comments 

To get the 6131 working with iSync, I tried several online sites that had advice on how to do it, but none of them worked. In the end, I experimented on my own and found a solution that worked. I’m including that solution below, but I do not take responsibility for any screw ups you may cause.

0) Make sure iSync is not running, and un-pair the phone from your Bluetooth preferences.
1) Go to your applications folder and right click on the iSync application.
2) Click on ‘Show Package Contents’
3) Navigate to -> Contents-> Plugins-> ApplePhoneConduit.Syncdevice -> Contents-> Plugins -> PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin -> Contents -> Resources
4) Within this last folder there will be a file called Metaclasses.plist
5) Copy this file and rename it something like Metaclasses.plist.bkp, if you do not know how to do this, you shouldn’t even be trying this.
6) Once you have made a backup of the file, open the original file in a text editor and do a search for the Nokia 6111. When you find it, you will see that it is a Series 40 v3 device.
7) Look at all the stuff that precedes it and follows it and make sure to copy only the stuff that pertains to the Nokia 6111 and copy/paste it right below it. This will give you two Nokia 6111’s in a row. Then on the second Nokia 6111 change every instance of the 6111 with a 6131 and save the file.
8) Pair the phone with your mac, and then launch isync.
