Will the bluetooth be crippled far enough that I can not sync it with my imac that has bluetooth? How about mp3 ringtones? will I be able to send to myself or even transfer via data cable, that motorola sells?
The E815 is the phone that I cant wait for, I just want to make sure what I can and can not do. Or they any special hacks out there that I can do all of the above. Thanks

The bt will be used for headset and handsfree profiles only. No data transfer. You can, however, got to www.susteen.com and buy their datapilot software that is compatible with mac. That can transfer phonebook, calendar, i believe pics, and maybe ringers. VZ might lock out the mp3's for ringers like they did with the v710 software update 👿 I understand that they have to make $$ but I think that those of us that are willing to spend $$ on data accessories should be rewarded for our inginuity. Not enough to make me leave VZ, that would be dumb. But, that's probably a good option for you. 😁

it should be the same data priotocol for the e815. The charger ports are the same, moto hasn't switched to USB on all their phones just yet. I'm not too familiar with mac, but i just sold the data kit to a mac user who has a brand new g5 running the latest os10 version. As for emailing mp3's, if it does work it will take FOREVER. I have the old software in my v710, and it took like 10 minutes to load one full mp3 from the transflash card to the phone. I would think loading it over the air would take even longer.
As for phonebook transfer and what not, check if your v265 s/w has an update feature to allow for the e815 parameters. They might be the same, but if not you shouldn't have to buy anything new.

browse wal-mart.com in their music section. 30 sec. clips of over 80k songs. I pilfer quite a few that way. You are allowed to store them to your desktop and whatever happens after that (**cough** end up on a transflash card **cough**) is all gravy. That's the best way to do it. You can also use your existing cd's by loading them into iTunes and converting them to mp3 format before cropping. I've done that too. Seems to work pretty well. 😁

good Sh*t, my friend. And I guess I should use verizon pix place to send myself pics. Hopefully I can somehow use the data cable to transfer my stuff. Get it now is so garbage. I dont like polyphonic ringtones.

You can get full audio ringers, but they're expensive. One day we cheaters of the system will find a way to succeed 😎

I have found NO way to put my contacts on my E815. ISync does not work (bt or cable) and DataPilot has yet to upgrade its software for that phone. My bt palm does not recognize it. Can Verizon move contacts from one phone to another?
I have seen many references to HowardForums but have not been able to reach that site. Any thoughts?

some guys over at Howardforums were able to get OBEX working. (if OBEX is enabled for mac then Isync can work)
But, you need a PC (which I dont have), and edit some seems and do some little hacking 🙂. US mac users are out of the loop, for now!
