My history in gadgets…

This gallery contains 19 photos.

As a geek, I’ve always been quite the gadget freak. The fact that my father was also interested in the newest toys didn’t help.

A quick list of my gadgets and phones over the years:

Nokia 3109c (Symbian S40) and iSync…

I got a company phone, a Nokia 3109 Classic, which is nothing less nothing more than a standard company phone. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles I’d like to have, but it works.

What didn’t work, was iSync on this phone. Real bummer, since I was hoping to sync everything between iCal/Address Book and this phone…

Google to the rescue, and i stumbled over this blog posting by James Lloyd, detailing how to get it to work.

Summary:

  1. Download the script here
  2. Right click iSync from the Applications folder in Finder and choose “Show Package Contents”
  3. Navigate to: Contents\Plugins\ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice\Contents\Plugins\Nokia-6131.phoneplugin and choose “Show Package Contents” again.
  4. Navigate to \Contents\Resources
  5. Replace the content of the MetaClasses.plist file with the content of the script downloaded in step 1
  6. (Re-)Setup your phone with your Mac

Done!

Using Voipfone.co.uk on Nokia E65

I recently bought a Nokia E65, a very classy, handy, and feature-packed phone. One of the reasons I went with this one is because it has WiFi, which I want to use for making internet-calls. The SIP client is a bit of pita though to configure, but I finally managed to get it working.

How to configure the voipfone.co.uk voip service:

General info:
Profile Name: Voipfone
Public Username: XXXXXXXX@195.189.173.10 (xxxxxxxx = your 8 digit voipfone number beginning with 3)

Proxy Server:
Proxy server address: 195.189.173.10
Realm: asterisk
Username: XXXXXXXX (your 8 digit voipfone number beginning with 3)
Password: XXXXXX (your 6 digit password)
Allow loose routing: Yes
Transport Type: UDP
Port: 5060

Register Server:
Proxy server address: 195.189.173.10
Realm: asterisk
Username: XXXXXXXX (your 8 digit voipfone number beginning with 3)
Password: XXXXXX (your 6 digit password)
Allow loose routing: Yes
Transport Type: UDP
Port: 5060

These settings allowed me to connect over WiFi to the Voipfone.co.uk service.
