[iSync] Nokia 5000d-2

After looking around for a while I finally figured out how to get Apple iSync to talk reliably to my Nokia 5000d-2. Most of the other 'solutions' assume that the 5000 is a Series 60 phone. It is in fact a series 40 phone, thus the family.com.nokia.series40.3rdEd.bus.bt.

The image for the phone was downloaded from ericfish.com and copied into the /Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin/Contents/Resources/ folder.

The following code was merged into the MetaClasses.plist file in /Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns/PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin/Contents/Resources/

I hope someone finds this helpful. It certainly makes things a bit easier for me. Now all I have to do is figure out how to manage the SMS subsystem. Gammu looks promising, once I figure out the link error. More on that another time.
