    I'm wanting to transfer some songs over to my Motorola E815 and of course the software that came with is Windows Only, is ther anyway I can transfer songs over to it with iTunes or anything like that. I'm using a G3 iMac, No Bluetooth, 600 MHZ, OS 10.3.9, I do have access to a PC and tried transferring music without any luck there either, so if I can't do it through my computer can anyone help me with this instead.

    Who's your provider? If it's Verizon, you're locked into using their software to transfer files, which means the only thing you can do with an e815 is sync your calendar and contacts using BT and iSync on OS X. I've never tried this with a BT dongle, which you'd probably get for your system, but it might work.

    Also, if you've got Verizon and you are using their software on a Windows PC, AFAIK you still can't move stuff directly to the phone, you'll need a TransFlash card in your phone to hold it.

    Hope some of this helps...

    This is half correct. There's a way to hack the phone to enable full bluetooth access. Though you'll probably need a PC to do it, and a data cable. Google for it.

    go to howardforums.com and find the carrier discussion, and do some searches on E815 and Mac OS X.

    good luck!
