Hi guys,

I just recently bought the Galaxy S2 and couldn't be happier. The only problem is that I would like to synchronize my macbook's contacts and music with the phone, and I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I heard Kies Air can work if I have WiFi. Has anyone tried this? I suppose it would work for any phone, no?

I use SyncMate for Android for it. It works more or less fine. But this software has some tricky things as well. For instance, I have now all my contacts doubled. Don't ask me why...

Besides the above stated software, you would need a software which runs on your Mac. This one is pretty expensive and it costs about $40.

iCal/contacts can directly sync with Google. You just need a Google account (which you'll have to have with your SGS phone anyway), then under prefs in those apps you can sync to Google, and work with the Google account on your computer.

Music/media is a little different. You can simply connect your phone, mount it as a USB drive and copy - for example- mp3 files over to it and they'll automatically be picked up by the media scanner (and available in your music player app).

Unfortunately, theres no way to sync contacts from an Android device to an iPhone that I know of. You most likely have to manually do it. If your contacts are all on your sim card, you could move them over that way.
