Weblog:   Bluetooth Phones and Mac OS X in Perfect Sync

Hi, just saw your post. I wrote the Share2Blue2th scripts and they do the exact opposite of what you say they do here. They share the Powerbook's internet connection over bluetooth out to the phone, for syncing Avantgo or testing WAP pages without blowing through your cellular provider's KB per month plan.

That being said, I'd like to hear if you manage to get the scripts working with the Z600, as I haven't heard confirmation of that phone model, and I'd like to update the Read Me with the How To of configuring the phone side of things if it works.

    Ack! Thanks for pointing that out. I don't normally do this, but I'm going to fix my blunder in the weblog. Much appreciated C.K. :)

      No problem! Still, give the scripts a try and let me know if they work. I think they may only work with Symbian phones, tho. The only report I've heard of them working with non-symbian was from a discussion board where someone said that they managed to get it working with a T610, but that thread has disappeared from apple's pages.

        So I ran the Share AirPort to Bluetooth script. My PB and Z600 did establish a BT connection, but I couldn't get any data to transmit over it. I'd run the kill script, which indeed did kill the connection, then try again with different data settings on the phone. Never found a combination that worked. Thought I had it a couple times, but no.

          That's too bad. I think that I might need to update the Read Me to say that the scripts will only work with Symbian-based phones. I've been hopeful until now, because of a few T610 users who had posted on a discussion board that they were able to get it working, but I never found out how and haven't heard positive results from any other non-Symbian users. *sigh*

          Thanks for testing it for me, though!

    Exactly when is a developer going to release a product that enables Entourage to use iSync, or to just sync the data from Entourage directly to my phone? I have a Siemens S55 btw, a genuine business phone, not a toy, but it's utility is greatly impaired for lack of Entourage syncing. I see HUNDREDS of others asking for this, but so far no one has stepped up to the plate. Why?

    And what WAS Apple thinking in releasing 3 separate products, iCal, Address Book, Mail to do the job of one fully integrated amazing app like Entourage. Sheesh!
