Actually this is a very good question. Nokia does not say much about SyncML over OBEX support at all (for free). The original Nokia 6600 does not support SyncML over OBEX. The latest firmware? I do not know either.
Have a look in Mac OS X > System Preferences > Bluetooth > Devices > Nokia 6600 > Supported Profiles. Is a SyncML client profile listed? If not, your Nokia does not support SyncML over OBEX.

Does 6600 support SyncML over OBEX
Since I had read many posts prior to posting my question, I was almost sure you'd be the one to get back to me on that on ;-)
Here's what the BlueTooth System Preference panel tells me:
Device Services: SDP Server, Bluetooth Serial Port, OBEX File Transfer, OBEX Object Push, Handsfree Audio Gateway, Fax, Dial-Up Networking
So, the 6600 I have seems to be able to sync through OBEX. I guess I will have to wait until Apple releases a version of iSync that also communicates with the phone via this protocol, rather than mRouter...
Do you know, by any chance, where does the 6600 stores its' connections and/or system logs?
I would like to look within the phone for some data that would give me clues as to why the phone claims to be out of memory each time I'm trying to sync my Address Book via iSync.
What's for sure is that the problem only occurs for the Address Book data, not for the iCal data, which tends to make me think that it can't be a real "out of memory" error.
To any Nokia "in-house" developer reading this: could you provide some info as to whether or not an update to the 6600's firmware will bring SyncML over OBEX support. And, if possible, when such an update would likely be released?
Nope, I haven't upgraded my firmware since version 4.09.1 because I've seent many many posts in Apple Discussions forum from people who could not sync altogether after upgrading their Nokia 6600 firmware to version 5.27. So I haven't.
What I have done, though, is upgrade my system software to version 10.3.8 from 10.3.7: I'm sure the syncing was working flawlessly before that.
Now, talking about SyncML over OBEX, I know Apple's gonna support this in a near future (no "Non-disclosure agreement" breach here, right?!), but as we now know, my 6600 does not even care...
Oh well, I'm gonna reinstall a full system software and upgrade it up to version 10.3.7 and will let you if the syncing worked back again after that.
