So I recently received my new iBook.. It's loaded.. Superdrive, 1.42ghz cpu, 1gb ram, BLUETOOTH, Airport Extreme.. you get the idea..

So I found out that according to Apple's website, my RAZR is compatible with the bluetooth features on my Mac.

I now can send/pull pictures and music off my phone without the use of cables. And, it's incredibly easy too..

I can chop my own ringtones in Quicktime Pro, and send them to my phone with BT-File Exchange.. I can also use ImageWell to resize images to the correct resolution and send them to my phone the same way.

Just thought I'd share something new that I found in OS X that I love.

No more spending $3.50/ringtone anymore!

Wow, do ringtones really cost $3.50?? Who on earth is willing to pay that when you can buy a whole song for $1!

That's what I love about Motorola. I don't if you can do this, legally, with other phones, but Motorolas you just need a cord to connect to your computer, or bluetooth, and a program package called "Motorola Phone Tools" and you can sync your contacts, up/download music, pics, videos. Through other programs, which I'm not sure of their legality, you can even change the entire looks of the screen. Kind of like Quicksilver for your phone.

I still use MPT to transfer data on mine SLVR through windows/bootcamp. If there's an easier way to do it through OS X, can you please elaborate?

I use the Bluetooth File Exchange app (in your Utilities folder) to send files to/from my RAZR.

All you have to do is turn the bluetooth on your phone to on, open up Sys.Prefs. and click the "Bluetooth" icon. There should be a button that says "Setup new device..." under the "Devics" tab. Click that and follow the wizard to setup your phone. It's quite amazing how simple it is.

And use the BT-File Exchange as I mentioned above (in your Apps folder) to send files to/from your phone. I personally use the Bluetooth icon in my menu bar. It's more convenient and it's just there with the "Send File..." option at the bottom as well as "Browse Device" so you can see what's on your phone.

Verizon strips their phones of just about all the capabilities the manufactures build into them. I have no idea why but they do.

I think the V3 is terrible.. The keypad doesn't feel as "good" as the v3c.. The UI, as Netty mentioned, is also terrible. I currently have 3 on mine.. The "Scarlet" which is reddish (might be the one you're using), then "Tekno" which is a metallic--techno-ish UI (which is what I'm currently using, and then the Default "MOTO" UI which reminds me too much of WinXP.

I also have a Verizon RAZR V3M. I've read that since Alltell essentially has the same hardware, you can hack out the Verizon crippleware and replace it with the full Moto OS. I haven't been brave enough to try this yet, but it sure would be nice to be able to get my photos easily off my phone, without having to pull the memory card out of it.

I was with Cingular prior to Verizon, and I can tell you that the service, costs and quality are much better. I'll suck it up and deal with the crippled phones as long as the customer service and network are this good.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Verizon says they do it to protect copywrite laws, but its really to force people to use their VCast "service" so Verizon can make more money.
