    the application iSync will allow you to synchronize calendars and address book contacts, simply add a new device to isync, you can even do it wirelessly via bluetooth (thats what i do).

    to browse files, either click Browse Device from the bluetooth menu item or open Bluetooth File Exchange and click Browse Device from the menu bar.

    hope this helps.

    That CD is for windows only. It's not going to work on the mac. I haven't done any research, but I doubt that USB cable is going to do anything on the mac (although I could be wrong). Your best bet is Bluetooth. I have the RAZR as well and everything works great with BT.

    Razr

    I have been syncing my RAZR with 10.3 and 10.4 and it works fine. It doesn't sync any information via Bluetooth - contacts, events, diary are all synced via usb. Bluetooth will allow you to copy files - music, video, pictures from mac to phone and back. Not sure why the USB/Bluetooth arrangement is that way?? 10.4 does attempt to sync via bluetooth and sees the phone, but fails. Still USB for syncing on 10.4

    So, are you saying that we can sync our contacts and events via USB, or not?

    Can we not sync our contacts and events with Bluetooth?

    I can sync my contacts fine over bluetooth. Haven't tried using USB to do it.

    I'm sure that many people are just using the bluetooth that comes with PowerBooks and iBooks to connect to the bluetooth in other devices. I'm pretty sure this comes in most Macs now, but I could be wrong on that one.

    I just connected the usb cable that I bought for my psp onto my razr v3... And it started charging it.. So I'm guessing that this cable will work...

    How can I upload mp3's onto my phone for ringtones?

    i tried the same thing and u can only deal with contacts and other simple backup stuff with the USB cable..i guess u need to buy the bluetooth adapter...i just bought one DLInk USB Bluetooth adapter and now my RAZR v3 syncs well with the iBOok for transfering music, etc....
