Another terrific opportunity for Mac OS X users with Bluetooth phones is Salling Clicker, which allows you to turn your phone (or BT PDA) into a remote control for your Mac. We've posted an article by Dori Smith on Mac DevCenter on how to set this up.

I'll test it specifically with the Z600 and report back soon. Thanks Jonas for the friendly reminder :)

    I hate to say it, but the article of mine that you referred to doesn't cover Clicker and phones, it covers Clicker and PDAs. That was because the former was thoroughly covered in this article by Wei-Meng Lee.

    If you have any questions about using the Z600 as a modem to get your laptop online, take a look at Chapter 7, "Cellular Connectivity" of Mac OS X Unwired. You do have a copy, right? ;-)

    I downloaded and installed Salling Clicker on the SE Z600. Everything works very well. I suggest that you give your clicker a descriptive name, such as Fred's Salling Clicker. This makes it easier to find it when browsing the phone's menus. You can apply the new name via your Mac in the Clicker's Preferences Panel via the Settings button in the lower left corner.

    Then, on the phone itself, you'll find the Clicker menu following this path:

    Main Menu > Connect (lower left corner) >Accessories (bottom of the Connect menu) >Salling Clicker (or the name you assigned to it).

    I suggest you look at all the scripts included with the software, and configure your clicker for the apps you use. Also, make sure Bluetooth is turned on for both your phone and your Mac.

    Hi !

    Thanks for sharing this inspiring story with us ! :-)

    I have used Salling Clicker quite a bit and it is indeed great ! Plus, both the Clicker and its helper application are fully AppleScript-able, which can come in handy sometimes...

    Fun with wireless : a great Mac user experience !
