    Are you sure nothing's happening? I know when I use click send, through my T616, nothing "happens" but the message is sent. Unfortunately Address Book doesn't give you a "sending message" dialog or anything. Try sending a message to yourself and see if it works.

    Odd, it's always been the opposite for me (I can send txts, but don't receive them). What Bluetooth adapter are you using on the iMac, out of curiousity?

    Actually, I'm pretty curious about this feature too. I have a 15"PBG4, 1 ghz, 1 gig RAM, most current OSX, and it is paired with my SONY ERRICSON P800. I can do the exchanges with the Adress Book, but I haven't figured out how to make calls/monitor calls on the PB. Do you know if this is a matter of finding the software for it, or is it compatibility? Again, the phone is paired via BlueTooth. I just don't have the other aforementioned features.

    thnks!

    Mooshoo, in address book there's a bluetooth button on the toolbar. Click it. Then, whenever someone calls or you get an SMS a dialog box will pop up. You can also dial a number or send an SMS by clicking on a phone number in the address book. Unfortunately, I don't know how to have the Address Book automatically connect at startup, but it otherwise works great.

    adding address book in the startup items should do it.

    cheers
