    So I'm finally breaking down and getting my first cell phone. Yeah, yeah, I know.

    Anyway, I'm going with Cingular, and wondering if anyone knows of a cell phone that sync's with Address Book from OS X. Bluetooth would be nice, but not needed at all. I don't really need / want an expensive phone that does tons of things. Just good reception/sound quality, decent interface, and can stay current with the info I keep on my PowerBook fairly easily. I don't care about camera/IM'ing/e-mailing from it, etc etc.

    Thank you

    Through Cingular, you're better off getting a phone with Bluetooth to sync with the computer. Most cell phone companies and providers will make you pay for a connectivity package with the USB cable and other software that usually won't work on a Mac, but if you have Bluetooth on the phone Cinuglar doesn't cripple that like Verizon does. So yea, go for Bluetooth. I'm making sure my next phone - hopefully a Treo - has it.

    But just having bluetooth doesn't guarantee it will work with Address Book, does it?

    No it does not garuntee compatibility with Address Book. Take a look at Apple's supported iSync phones.
