    in 2003, Apple released Mac OS X Jaguar with an address book that could sync your contacts through bluetooth, call, send sms throught the mac, also included the bluetooth file exchange to exchange files with your paired cellphone.

    How they can't do this in 2008 with their own phone when they supports
    ALL KIND OF NON-APPLE CELLPHONES?

    Web archive Apple.com at 2003:
    And if you’ve got a Bluetooth-equipped cell phone, Address Book can automatically sync with it, alert you when you’ve got an incoming call and display the Caller ID information.

    it was a great feature. In leopard though they've removed all Bluetooth functionality out of the address book.
