I have had my macbook for a little over 5 months now and I have been loving every minute of it.

It has come time to get a new cell phone (i have been using a Palm Treo 700w). I'm wondering if anybody out there has any good recommendations for a smart phone that is good with macs?

I use iCal and I would like to be able to sync with the calender feature of my phone via either usb or bluetooth (don't really care which one). I had used MissingSync with my Treo but it works sparingly and I have not been very impressed with it.

Any recommendations? Thanks!

If yall need anymore information let me know.

I've had some problems with iSync with my Palm Zire 31 on occasion. Main problem seems to be that HotSync Manager is still used by iSync, and is still a PPC application. There was a couple of instances where even though I had put an appointment into iCal, for some reason it refused to show up in the Palm calendar after what appeared to be a successful sync.

I purchased the Missing Sync, but couldn't get it to work on my Mac Mini for some reason that I forget, and I haven't tried it yet on my Macbook.

Otherwise, most of the time it works fine, but I wouldn't say that Palm based devices are necessarily 'Mac friendly' even if you can get them to work. I wish Apple would just create their own PDA. I'd probably buy one.

Agreed. Mine works fine with no issues.
