I've been using a Nokia 7600 with a Vodafone USIM for some time and it
works great with my PowerBook. It is not (yet) supported by iSync but
you can use bluetooth to transfer contacts, access the internet, etc,
on your Mac. I never got iCal to work well with it and the 7600 is
pretty weak on the PIM side but the 6630 Vodafone is offering should
include far more advanced Series 60 applications.
