    Hi All--

    I've been trying to find a way to circumvent Cingular's costly ringtone
    downloads for my Nokia 6030, by investigating getting a cable. I found
    one here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...25343271&categ...

    My question: has anyone tried this with a Mac (power pc, 10.4.7)? Does
    anyone know if OS X will just see the phone as an external drive, like
    it does w/SD cards? I'm hoping this would be the case, since then it
    would just be easy drag-and-drop into the appropriate folder on the
    6030. If not, does anyone know if there are any Nokia drivers for OS X
    that would make this work? Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Re: Advice? Nokia 6030 and OS X

    I got one of the cables, and have so far had no luck using it. Nothing
    happens when I plug it in, it does not show up on the desktop, or in
    iSync. I am trying to get it to sync my contacts. I am still working on
    this, so I'll let you know if I find out anything more!

    You should buy a mid-range or a high-end phone if you are after true USB
    support and want to see the phone memory (normally the memory card on the
    phone) as an external drive on your PC/Mac. For a low end phone like 6030
    you would need specific PC SW like Nokia PCSuite (not sure if it supports
    6030 as there should not be an official PC interface, and I think PCSuite is
    not available for Mac). Some third party applications might support 6030.
