    Get a Sony Ericcson... they're compatable with macs! I have the t616 and it syncs up to my powerbook via bluetooth... pretty cool stuff.

    I have the Motorola V505, although Apple says you need the USB cable to sync, you can still do one entry from your Address Book at a time, sucks I know. But the other bluetooth features work. I copied MP3 music clips to mine to play as a ringer (Ozzy!) and I have successfully connected to the internet thru it using GPRS. Pretty snazzy when I can sit in my truck out on a job site and connect to the internet. Speed is pretty good too, faster than dialup it seems.

    Thanks IanCT for sharing that.I'm actually going today to buy one and i will look into it.Here in Italy at the moment there is an offer on a Nokia v550 which usually retails at 299.00 euros and from now till Christmas they give you two phones for the price of one.I tried to get info on that model but can't seem to find out if it is mac compatible or not.Anyone know anything about that model?

    P900 and P910i don't Sync well with Tiger. Works fine with Panther though so long as you have the latest iSync. See ad...

    sony ericson is the way to go, salling clicker is the best, it does so much, you can control your ibook/powerbook frmo the cell phone, play slideshows, etc. I recently was in discussion with the developers and no other phones are planned on ever supporting salling clicker or anything like it.
