Windows Mobile devices are becoming more and more common every day, especially smartphones and Pocket PCs with cell phone capabilities. However, none of these devices include connectivity or synchronization software that supports the Mac. That's where The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile comes in. With ActiveSync-like capabilities for the Mac, The Missing Sync lets you easily connect and synchronize your important information with Windows Mobile 2002/2003/5 Pocket PC and smartphone devices.

Device Support Broad connectivity and device support

The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile supports nearly all smartphones and Pocket PCs made over the last several years, including the very latest devices running Windows Mobile 5 (WM5). If you have an older iPAQ or the new Motorola Q, you'll be able to get the most out of these devices with The Missing Sync. You can sync your device with multiple computers and all device-side connections are available: USB, Bluetooth, and when supported by the device, Wi-Fi (WM5 devices do not support Wi-Fi sync). View the complete list of supported devices.

- Sync Address Book, Keep in touch
- Sync iCal, Manage your time more effectively
- Sync Entourage, Use your favorite desktop apps
- Install Windows Mobile Applications from your Mac
- Mount your device on the Mac desktop
- iPhoto plug-in
- Made by Mac users for Mac users

This albatross is finally out of super pre-alpha-beta testing stage? Finally... geeze!

I had to wait forever for Missing Sync for Smartphone and I just finished waiting forever for the WM5 flavor.

It really is easier to just do it with a PC and ActiveSync but if you don't have or don't want to use a PC, this is the best way to go.

Pity there isn't an easy way to install .exe programs, it only handles .cabs.

Supports SP5 but not C600 - an Orange security issue or might it be an oversight by the developers ?

Working fine for me now too, but over the last few years, with various devices I've grown to hate Activesync with a passion. It really is bad, bad software.

That said, this software is nice, especially as a person who's bought a Mac for the first time very recently, but you still need a Windows machine realistically for full functionality - many programs need you to install exe files.

Although I hear the Mac makes a really nice Windows PC nowadays... :)

Yes the Missing Sync installs a small file on to your phone that allows it to talk properly to the desktop version. If you're not able to install that because Orange security won't let you, it's probably worth reporting to MarkSpace to see if they can work round it.

This app has been fantastic with my Vario and Powerbook.

Have those with Orange C600s application-unlocked their phones using the tool obtained from Orange Developers ?
The reason I ask is that even with security disabled I can't get Sprite to install. I wonder if the same problem occurs here. Is there a level of security that exists beyond 'disabled' that neither this nor Sprite can get past ?

Damn - I just upgraded Pocketmac, as I'm still using my SPV M2000 as my MDA Vario is off being mended. But the new version seems to crash even more often than the old version so I am going to try and get a refund.
