    as far as i know they do not sync, the VX6000 that i have doesn't sync with Panther, and i have not heard it is supported in Tiger either.

    With Bitpim, you can sync your contacts, photos, and more. It's not as graceful as iSync, but I have used it successfully with Samsung and Sanyo phones. Sorry, I have no experience with LG phones and Bitpim, but the VX6100 is listed as supported.

    You will need a usb cable if you do not already have one for the phone. They are available on eBay, at RadioShack, and from specialty retailers like 3Gcables.

    Do be aware, Bitpim is great but it's still in development release (current version is 0.7.31). It should work, just don't expect it to be perfect.

    I have the phone. Works great. One of the best phones I have had (and seeing I tend to spike them when I get mad that is saying something.) It hasn't been spiked that is how much I like it...or maybe I am growing up a bit. :)

    I've got the LG VX6000, and my Dad has the VX6100...they are both very nice phones. The 6100 definitely has the better camera (Pic quality seems to be better, has a flash/zoom...) but other than that they are very similar. Great interface/menu system makes them easy to use. Doesn't have all the bells 'n whistles, but it's a very nice little picture phone.

    As for BitPim, I'm very excited! Just one more thing to make me excited about getting a Mac (12" PB :D ) I've never heard of it, but it looks great and I can't wait to give it a try. Thanks for the link, mcgarry :)

    Be sure to let us know how you like the new phone, amholl, and hope my mini-review helped.

    You're welcome, but you don't have to wait for your Mac to start using it ... it has versions for Windows and Linux (I've only tried the Mac versions).

    And just to repeat, it is still pre-1.0, so use at your own risk, etc.

    I noticed there is a Windows version as well, but I don't have the data cable right now, and also don't want to put anything new on my PC right now, as it's very unstable and I want to make sure it will keep going for another couple weeks, until it will be replaced by a far superior machine :D
