FoneLink is a fantastic piece of software! It recognised my Nokias immediately and was so easy to use. I particularly like the ease of backing up, the ability to see images AND send SMS..........all from a Mac; wonderful.

Fonelink recognized my phone (sony ericsson 580I) without a problem, but the syncing was not working correctly. I contacted support and with their help I was able to resolve the problem. This is a very good product. I find it to be very easy to use.

I paid for and bought Fonelink in July 2008 for use with my Nokia E71 and MacBook Pro. I had a lot of problems with it not recognising my phone and such.

The support staff at Novamedia were excellent. Within days i had a solution and now with every version i see improvements. Yes there were sync issues. But they've sorted them out and i use the latest 2.1.5 version with no issues. It does everything as promised and i couldn't be more pleased.

Hello dear customers,

I am sorry for the crashes some of you experienced. Most of them are due to a faulty firmware on the cell phones, please try the new version as it includes a workaround.

Kind regards,

Jan Fuellemann (nova media)

As a PC user, I had for many years used Nokia's PC Suite, so when I changed over to Mac I wanted somthing that would do the same things again. Initially I did have problems getting my Nokia 8600 Luna to connect my Mac (without Fonelink), iSync wouldn't even recognise my phone!

However, Novamedia wrote software for me "on the fly" to solve this problem, they couldn't have been any more help than they were.

I would wholehearted recommend this product, which has made my life easier!

Well this is a very good application. I've just tested the Demo version. Minus points for a few things such as calendars not being transfered at all, spinning wheel of death a lot and the sync can take a long time.

However it's well laid out, extensive and is 20x more useful than BluePhoneElite, which I incidentally have.

Had I not been planning to purchase an iPhone this month then I would have bought this app to go along with my next phone. However iPhone it is and similar syncs are done via iTunes. I'd recommend it.

Hi Fuellemann,

Thanks for your interest. I had 2 phones: both Sony Ericsson - a W550i and a W850. The W850 could sync everything except the calendar function. Although I had it set up to transfer iCal events etc nothing would show up on the phone after syncing.

The other issue is with the W550. According to your site it is a supported phone but the program keeps telling me it's not. Tried it on my PPC running Tiger and my Intel MacBook running Leopard, both clean install of the demo version. Each time setup assistant won't recognise the phone. Both phones were set up normally in the Apple Bluethooth.

Great programme. By far the most sophisticated phone programme for the Mac. Excellent tech support too and always adding new phones.

Nice app for people who are looking for a synchronication tool connetcting mobile phone and os x. good performance, good features and super support. Take care of using Fonelink and the Novamedia phone plugins together - could produce double contacts on Nokias.

warning, the above link is to the 2.0 version... if, like me, you already have 201 then this will actually be a downgrade ! it would be helpful if nova-media labeled their installers with version #'s instead of using just the generic name. If you already own this then best to launch the app and do the update from the help menu.
