Syncing Cell Phones with Bluetooth

I'm ready to get a new cell phone with Rogers and am interested in one that will sync with a Imac using bluetooth. The ones I've looked at are the Motorola v551 and the v635. Has anyone tried this and or any suggestions?
Thanks

I work for Rogers Wireless data tech support and I can tell you from Experience to go with Sony Ericsson. They have by far the best phone software out there (built into the phone). If you can afford it, go for a sony ericsson s710a. Your imac will detect it right away...you can do just about anything over bluetooth...transfer files to and from, use your phone as a modem over bluetooth, etc.

I use the Sony Ericsson K700i and it syncs perfectly with iSync. I even got an OS X theme modifier for it so I can design my own menus and desktops.

Looking on the apple web site, it lists Sony Ericsson as having the most features that can sync. Are these (smart) phones and does Sony Ericsson make any that are a clam shell design? I'm tired of having to lock the key pad.

I'm currently using the moto V3 razr and the bluetooth syncing with my mac is fantastic. Just the fact that you can add all of your contacts via adress book made me want to get a bluetooth enabled phone. Making your own backgrounds and ringtones is also a big bonus for those so inclined. My friend just bought the V635 but I'm unsure whether he's performed any bt syncing as of yet. I do know he loves having a phone with 256MB of storage though.

Well, I too will favor Symbian phones, and more specifically Series 60 Nokias (all the ones running Symbian OS). Why?? Most if not all should sync with no issues. There have been the odd bugs, but there is plenty of documentation online to work that out.

the 6620 is a great one, as you can sync and you're looking @ an EDGE phone (hi speed network). I mention that one as it's the best Nokia avail via Rogers right now.
You can then look @ any 3rd party vendor to get some of the other ones. Like the 6630, the 6670, one that I love - the 7610. A real good one which is sched'd for the Rogers lineup is the 6682. 262K screen, hot swappable mini SD etc... Anyhow, I also like Symbian for the fact that you can also get some great 3rd party apps: Like some day time minutes trackers, GPS apps for your cell and a variety of other apps. Much like Palms did in their heyday.

More info on Series 60.

H!
