Second day of owning a Sony Ericsson T610, not as eventful as the first, but a nice tip for moving those Entourage contacts into Address Book so you can iSync ’em to your phone.
Second day of owning a Sony Ericsson T610, not as eventful as the first, but a nice tip for moving those Entourage contacts into Address Book so you can iSync your hundreds of friends, family, and associates to your phone.
In visiting with some people it seems that the display issue I have where it ‘wiggles’ a bit, almost like the light is turning off and on really fast, is not normal. This will mean another trip out to Massachusetts tomorrow so I can swap the phone for another and hope it doesn’t do the same thing.
T-Mobile is having a hard time with GPRS lately, service is intermittent and it’s really getting annoying. This is the third day of problems up here in the Ocean State. I could be fashionable and blame Blaster/Nachi/WormDuJour, but that’d be giving Microsoft a little too much credit, I think. (I hope!) Still trying to see how the email client can check my email for me every few minutes but I think my problems are related to GPRS being so unreliable.
Someone asked how I could get Entourage to work with iSync. I didn’t. In case that wasn’t clear, I just dragged the cards to the desktop
The best place to start is with /Library/Scripts/Mail Scripts/Import Addresses.scpt, a script that will import your addresses from a variety of email programs and dump them into Addressbook.app.
Open that up, see what you can do. I’m sure someone can fix it up nicer than I can, but I’ll hack on it when I have some time. Note – it will ADD those items to your Addressbook, not SYNC them.
More to come, I’ll be doing some speed tests with the GPRS service – once its working again!
