View Full Version : i want a mobile phone that plays along!

i've searched and searched the entire worldwide web. my head hurts. it can't be this hard.

i can't wait for an iPhone, much less wait until i can afford it. my contract is ending with my carrier soon, and i need a phone that has the following:

1. qwerty or something like it
2. bluetooth
3. mac friendly, isync contacts, calendar, data, music, etc
4. i can actually use it as a phone

i don't care about the camera, the video and the music. if i can browse the web and have it sync with my ibook both with my address book, and files (if possible) i'm happy.

the carrier is of little importance. i would rather have something that i like the functionality of. most of the posts i have found are outdated, off-topic, or not helpful. i have heard inklings of sony ericsson and samsung being good. but i have NOTHING for all the work i have done. i realize it may just be wishful thinking.

is there a phone out there that loves my mac as much as i do? any input would be appreciated..

That page has a chart at the bottom that might help, also check out http://mobile.feisar.com for additional Sony Ericsson phone plugins.

I would like to recommend the SE m600i, but currently there's no iSync support.

The Cingular 8125 fills 3 out of 4 of your requirements. The only one it doesn't fill is iSync compatibility. In order to get a Windows Mobile phone working on your Mac, you have to purchase Missing Sync (http://www.markspace.com/). Though with this addon, you'll be able to do everything you want, like syncing your Address Book, iCal events, etc.

I've had my 8125 for a little over a year now, and I absolutely love the thing. If I were to ever lose it, I know for a fact that I would buy it again. :black:

Check out the Palm 700p... it does all you ask for.... and then some.

Using a little program called iPhony you can make the start screen look like mine here:
