I don't think there is a recent thread specifically for Mac users so I thought I'd start one ...

I know a lot of you are connecting your phones to PCs from the threads I've read [and boy, is it complicated!!], but there doesn't seem to be that much discussion about SE phones and Macs.

So Mac users: post here with any hints, tips, what software you use, problems you may have, etc.

To get things going, do all you Mac users know about the software available to connect your SE phones to your Mac? Here's a link that may be useful:

Here's hoping this will become a lively thread

I am using a P800 which I sync with my Wallstreet Powerbook (running Jaguar 10.2. and iSync and iCal. O yes, Wallstreet has no bluetooth so I got a dongle which works pretty fine.

For file transer, Bluetooth File Exchange does the job well.

Of course, I can't do without a MS stick reader to transfer heavy duty files like videos and oggs.

Pretty all rounded if you ask me about using Mac and a SE...

I agree with Altezza_lex about phoneagent - it's a bit pricey at $30 (20 to me) but is far and away the most complete program for linking the t610 to the Mac and in my opinion, well worth the money. You can send sms direct from your Mac, back up your phonebook and sim and a lot more.

The other program I use a lot is Ericsson Client. This works great with the t68 (that's what it was written for) but also works perfectly with my t610 (don't know about other models as I can't test it). It is ideal for basic file transfers and also allows a backup of the phone book.

In fact, when I changed to the t610 recently, from a t68, I backed up the t68 phonebook and calendar to the Mac using this program and then just sent the files to my t610: phonebook and calendar populated, no problem

Great response to this thread so quickly! Hope it's useful!

Great idea, is really missing link on this forum. The PC guys don't know what there missing...

Once you MAc you never go back!!

P900 or T610 and Salling Clicker is a must for Mac and Bluetooth users

Hi KarmenV, the only theme editor for the t610 I know of is phoneagent. Only thing is, you can't save themes without registering the program

For the t68, there is

http://homepage.mac.com/tobiaslidskog/T68ThemeEdit/index.html

and as the page says, it may be updated for the t610.

Hope this helps,
David

to use your phone on a mac is very easy.

u install mac os X 10.3
put in a bluetoothadapter.
start the program bluetooth in your settings.
search for units find ur phone connect them
start isync tada done.

you can even transfer files with the program that is on the os X
no need to get anything else

well salling clicker isnt bad
then u can remote your computer with your phone

it is the best combination to run an ibook and a t610 it works all the time

Well, there is a reason why there is no speciel MAC thread... We MAC guys just don't have to fight all those silly problems like on Windoze
It's as easy as eznug wrote... all done in less than 2 minutes...

I agree with s40convert about Windoze. I specifically tried not to gloat about how easy linking the se phones to Macs is when I started this thread but as it's already been mentioned - to all you PC users struggling to get your se phones and PCs talking to each other:

Nanananananaa!

Only joking! Please don't flame me!!!

Someone mentioned about the Bluetooth file exchange program that comes with osX Jag. This is useful for basic transfer *to* the phone but not the other way (I don't think?) I struggled through the menus for something to initiate the program and then realised all I had to do was drag the file onto the dock icon and off it goes! D'oh!!

no true, you can receive files on your mac from the phone... If I read all those problems from the windoze guys, I'm glad I have a Mac...
