If you are a Samsung phone user, you know that there is no official Samsung software that connects your phone to a Mac. Likewise, Apple's iSync software is not compatible with Samsung phones due to Samsung leaving out the necessary syncing technology. If you want to sync your Samsung with a Mac, you must use Nova Media's FoneSync for Samsung Phones. This software is available for purchase, but you can also download a trial version.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Navigate to FoneSync for Samsung Phones (see Resources). Check to see whether your phone is supported. If it is, click "Download."

  2. 2

    Double-click the downloaded disk image to mount it. Double-click the installer icon when the disk image opens. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete set-up.

  3. 3

    Go to "Settings" on your Samsung phone. Then choose "Phone Settings," "PC Connections" and then "Samsung PC Studio." Switch back to the main menu.

  4. 4

    Connect your phone via USB.

  5. 5

    Click "Applications" on your Mac and then double-click "FoneSync." Click "Add Phone" and then select your phone.

  6. 6

    Click "Sync Settings" if you want to change the settings. When you click each option, you will be presented with options as to which data to prefer--the Mac data or your phone data. Select your options and click "Save."

  7. 7

    Click "Sync Contacts," "Sync Calendar" or "Sync All," depending on what you wish to sync.
