    mac-friendly bluetooth cell phones?
    i'm in the market for a new cellphone, particularly something with bluetooth so i can sync it to my mac. i have verizon, and i don't necessarily care about having super-great camera or video features. i'm more interested in having a phone that i can hear exceptionally well on, and that plays well with isync, and a battery that lasts more than a few hours.

    anybody have a cell they love? they hate? i'd love any and all suggestions.

    Specs:
    Aluminium Macbook 2.4 Ghz 4GB RAM, SSD 24" Samsung Display, iPhone 4, iPad 2
    Sony Ericsson have great mac compatibility.
    (I have a K750i - nice battery life, but some additional features I'm not sure you want to pay for).

    Specs:
    Powerbook G4/ 15.2"/ 1.67 ghz/ 2 gb RAM/ ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 (128 mb RAM)/ 100 gb hdd@ 5400 RPM
    The bad news is, unless you own a BlackBerry, Verizon kills the PC bluetooth connectivity with their phones (you can still use the assorted accessories).
    I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

    you could try the Sony Ericsson p910i, they are very good phones, the connectivity is quite good plus the features on the phone is good as well....pda, touch screen etc.

    I just synced a Motorola Razr today via bluetooth & USB - no problems, but it doesn't support address book dialing & sms.

    (Plus the menu interface bites on all motorolas I've tried to date)

    i have used a razr in the past with no problems, now I use my Nokia 6682 with no problems, keep in mind that the nokia software won't work with it but you can do the samething by using send file via bluetooth with both the computer and the phone.

    You can use the se w900i and with bluetooth you can see who is calling you on your imac. Also you can use nokia n70, n90 the palm treo 650 works a treat.

    For the official list go the folloing web page.

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/isync/devices.html


    You can also create scriptd for nearly all phones so you can mod isync to use phone sthat apple have not catered for. I get a new cell every month so find that isync is always behind.
    Who dare's wins... :ninja:
