    Sony does not support the T68i with any software. That's too bad. PC's have extremely limited bluetooth options, yet sony chooses to slight the Mac.

    ::sigh::

    What kind of support are you looking for?

    OSX can do alot with the t68i in the area of PIM synching and using the phone as a BT modem.

    There is an app called "Sony Ericson Client" (i think that is what it is called) that lets up transfer pics, notes, etc onto the phone.

    And "Clicker" is a really cool app by the same guy that lets you use the phone as a remote for X. It is alot cooler than it sounds...

    That pretty much covers my needs...

    The T68i is supported by both iSync and as a wireless modem with OS X.

    It is listed on Apple's compatibility page.

    t68i questions

    There are a few programs such as Sony's and Romeo that work well with iTunes, iSync, Keynote, etc. I do have to admit that I have not gotten it to work as a modem very well. A high speed GPRS connection will work but then the service providers charge so much. I tried using it as a modem but it only connects at 9600 which is about useless. Although overall I am very happy with it. Does anyone know if it is possible to connect the phone via a wire and use the modem within your computer to hopefully attain speeds over 9600 without using GPRS? Thanks

    BT FileExchange

    You don't need a third party app to upload backgrounds or themes just use the Bluetooth File Exchange in the Utilities folder but the pictures have to be in the right format.....32000 colours and 101pixels wide. I use graphiconverter to change any picture into a background and I think that the T68i is more useful under OSX with Apple software than it is under XP with Sony Software.
