    I too have a Sony Ericcson T610 and have had no problems. I highly recommend it although you could probably go for the T630 which from what i hear has a better screen. I still think the T610 looks classier though.

    Yeah, the Sony-Ericsson T610/T616 and T630/T637 models are excellent phones, and are a perfect match for iSync and Mac.

    FWIW, my old Nokia 3650/T-Mobile service syncs just fine and dandy. Has Bluetooth. Was recently free at Amazon (likely still is...).

    Yes, but for a subject like this, when new phones come out every week, vendors change available plans, deals come and go on certain phones, iSync updates reduce the number of phone models which don't work, and different members see the thread, it isn't altogether a bad idea to ask.

    Just spoke with a Verizon Rep, supposedly (sp) the motorola v710? will be having new software available for BT computer sync. Pricing ph but I will wait for it, if the update does come out by Christmas, I'll bite.

    Let us Know what and why you pick what you get!

    My cell phone is such a piece of crap, I have Moto V60 both LCDs are dead.. But I'm pretty excited by the Moto, Cisco announcement of a WiFi VoIP Cell Phone... I think I'm going to have to hold out for that one, the article I read (can't remember where to find link) said it would be released Q1 05, so that's promising.

    Here's hoping.
