Symbian OS w/ Mac
 
I want to buy the Nokia E71x and I have a MacBook. I do NOT want to use iCal and the other Mac apps to sync to my phone. Will the Symbian installation disc work with my Mac or is there any way to get that program on my computer? (Or any other options???) Had Palm Desktop and loved it because my calendar, notes, to-do's were all together. Thanks!

First if you just want to sync contacts, calendar, etc I would recommend using iSync but this does mean that you will have to use Address Book & iCal, which quite frankly are quite good applications:

Now as a second alternative you should check out Bluephone Elite, not free, but might be a good alternative to sync your Nokia E71x here is the list of what is supported:

Unable to dial any phone numbers that end in emergency numbers 112, 911, or 999.
