Motorola RAZR V3c iSync Plugin
A plugin for Apple's iSync that adds basic compatibility with the Motorola RAZR V3c. The phone does not support iCal all-day events (because the phone doesn't understand them). Plugin only tested with the Verizon version of the phone.

RAZR V3c Plugin (28 KB - Updated 2/13/2006)
Requirements: Mac OS X 10.4.3 — 10.6.8. I cannot offer any guarantees about the plugin's function or performance. It works for my needs, but it might not work for you. Use at your own risk.
Installing the Plugin
The plugin is now distributed as an Installer package. Download the Zip file above and unzip, then double-click on the Installer. When you're done, if you're using bluetooth, pair your phone. In iSync, add a new device, your phone should be detected.
Uninstalling the Plugin
Unfortunately, Apple's Installer does not have a corresponding Uninstaller tool. So, to uninstall the plugin, remove /Library/PhonePlugins/RAZR V3c.phoneplugin. And to be 100% thorough, you can also remove the receipt package in /Library/Receipts.
Setup Your V3c to Use Bluetooth
- On your Mac, go into System Preferences and click on the Bluetooth icon.
- On your phone go to your bluetooth setup (Menu > Settings > Connections > Bluetooth > Setup).
- Check that the bluetooth power is On.
- Select the Find Me option, your phone will be discoverable for 60 seconds.
- On your Mac, in the Bluetooth preferences, click on Setup a New Device.
- Follow the instructions on the Mac and the phone, you'll be asked to enter in a key number on the phone to pair it with your Mac.
- After the phone is paired, it should tell you your done and give you the option to setup iSync and Dial-up options. If you don't see anything about iSync and Dial-up at the end of the Bluetooth Setup Assistant process then try this: Remove your newly added phone from the list of Bluetooth devices, turn off the bluetooth power on the phone, turn off the phone. Then, power everything back up and try the process again, it should work the second time. Sometimes things get goofed up. If that still doesn't work, try manually adding the device to iSync.
Setup Your V3c to Use USB
- If your phone is already setup to use bluetooth, than this probably won't work.
- Connect your phone to your Mac.
- Make sure your phone is powered-up and make sure the phone is active (if the screen if off, then for some reason it won't be detected by iSync).
- In iSync, add a device, it should find your phone.
