    Without stating the obvious or risking sounding stupid, is it at all possible to install the older version of address book from Tiger in Leopard would this work....?

    Last time I checked it was a setting in the Preference file. Why do you need bluetooth in Address Book, just use iSync.

    Hi,

    I tried to run the Tiger Address Book in Leopard and it would just give me a error message, that it couldn't be used with "this version of Mac OS X". Maybe there are some hacks or something, but I depend to much on Address Book to screw it up.

    I started to use Skype to send SMS messages. For me, it's even cheaper as with my mobile.

    Hope this was helpful.

    Yep Apple killed Address book's BT support because it wouldn't work with iPhone, and Apple couldn't have that now could they :(

    Ok, then iSync is what you want to use. Take a look at this post over at Mac Kindergarten for setting up a connection between your bluetooth phone and your Mac.
