    Okay so Sony will soon have a bluetooth memstick out.. Now, what cellphones have Bluetooth so we can place calls or SMS from our PDA's wirelessly?

    all ericsson phones released since last year have it.

    t39 being the most common and cheapest one in NA.

    you can also buy a bluetooth addon module for the t28

    Can you use a clie w/IR to an IR Equiped GSM nokia phone? Or is IR only for contacts and such?

    you can go online with all nokia ir enabled phones using the irda port of your pda.

    i dunno about ALL gsm phones, but probably.

    Well, my old phone broke and now I'm the proud owner of a Ericsson T68 w/bluetooth!! No more cheapo phones for me! This phone is cool in itself with it's geek factor!! Now, if I had a bluetooth MS, could I do SMS over my Clie? What about dial into my ISP and get email? The WAP browser etc seems really limiting in what I can do. Also, I'd prefer to connect w/minutes rather than data as I only get 1 meg/month

    Oh well, I'm really happy with the phone though!!!

    yes, you could do all those things... i believe the bluetooth attachment plugs into the serial port on the clie.. its not a memstick.

    check the costs of gprs in your area though, the local carrier here is charging a whopping 25$can for 2mb!!! so you better not go over.

    i don't know about connecting over regular data modem on GPRS cellphone... itll be very slow. like 9600-14.4k max.

    Oh I thought there was that infostick product??

    Well, you're both right:

    Bluetooth MS

    And in Japan, there's a bluetooth plug that connects to the bottom of the Clie. Here's that link:

    Bluetooth Plug

    I think though everyone is expecting the MS form factor.

    thorin, you hinted at a question I've had concerning GPRS.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use standard GSM data service (not GPRS) with a GPRS phone (ie t39)? I like the t39 because of the size, price, and Bluetooth, but I don't want to pay the $$ for GPRS service. I'm happy with the speed on my VisorPhone using standard GSM data.

    The t39 specs state that it operates on the North American frequency, but I'm a little fuzzy on the relationship between GPRS and GSM.

    The saleperson at the local VoiceStream store said it's possible, but I've lost faith in these guys based on past experience.

    i dont know if you can use regular data-over-gsm on a gprs phone, but I think it's very likely . in fact, im almost sure of it.

    if you want to know more about cellphones, i suggest the forums at www.howardchui.com .

    Yes, I just got the T39m and I have been able to make both GSM data calls (9.6k) and use GPRS (from my prism via a Red-M and bluetooth). I could also make 28.8k (HSCDS) datacalls if I pay my provider (Orange in the UK) a bit more.

    Thanks, rrc. I always prefer to hear from somone with a firsthand experience.

    Seems to me the Bluetooth phone is the way to go since there are more and more PDAs which are Bluetooth enabled.


    Now to find a good price on the t39...

    What apps are out there that allow SMS over bluetooth? Or is this a bundled app with the infostick/sony bluetooth adapters

    Monkey Messanger and Phone Mate (both included with Red-M Blade, but available seperately) can send SMS over a bluetooth connection.
