I've been doing it for a few years with my third party phones, wondering if the new ones do. It would be a shame if they didn't finally put that in, that would not be very innovative. Say it ain't so.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
I don't think there was any mention of wireless syncing. Shame, really. You'd think with all the wireless hype Apple is spreading, iPhone/iPod touch syncing would certainly be wireless!<br><br>- alec -
Uh... I think so. It definitely can use a wireless signal. My friend in Arizona showed me hers in detail, and demonstrated that it's much faster when using wireless, rather than cellphone signal. And I'm pretty sure I remember seeing that iSync icon in its app list. <br><br>OR do I know what you're talking about? You say you've been doing it with other phones -- maybe I don't know what you're saying. She had dragged over pictures and files from her computer to her phone, and of course vice-versa. Is that what you mean by syncing wirelessly?<br><br><br>Shooshie<br><br><br><br><br>[color:green]Pictures and things</font color=green>
No, it can't. I think Shooshie's friend's iPhone must be magical. I agree, it would be a nice addition, but I just want copy/paste first. <br><br>But where is this "new iPhone" bit coming from? Have you been reading MacGizmo's threads again? There have been no major changes to the phone since its inception, except for memory capacity and price.<br><br>
What I mean is it can sync, but not wirelessly. All those wireless ports built in but we can't use one of them to sync. I don't mean sync with iTunes etc over bluetooth, that may be a lot of data to go bluetooth, I just need Address Book, iCal, and Notes, like dozens of third party phones have been able to do for years.<br><br>The worlds most advanced phone needs a wire to sync, and can't sync with .mac? Apple needs to take some of that 14 bil? in cash and put it to good use instead of trickling out the updates IMO.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game

But I think the iSync icon was there. I've written her an email and asked her to explain.

You will be able to sync your contacts, calendars and notes (as I stated in the earlier thread). That's the "push" technology. - I don't know if you will be able to do it wirelessly though. I would guess not, but who knows. It also appears that those features are part of the Exchange functionality, which of course would require MS Exchange Server, but again, who knows if someone will write an app to have it work with Apple's apps instead.<br><br>

It's the wireless I'm interested in, and the .mac sync. It's a freakin' $4-500 device that uses its bluetooth for what? A headset, whoopee.<br><br>If it can connect to the Internet, why not sync with .mac? Because they haven't put the money into writing any of this into the software. That's why IMO Jobs should come up off a little of that cash and hire some programmers to do it.<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game
