SMS & Call on a Mac via bluetooth

SMS & Call on a Mac via bluetooth
with your bluetooth phone
When you are facing your Mac, have you ever thought that you could read & reply a SMS or dial/receive a call, while your mobile phone is in another room? With the software BluePhoneElite, you can achieve it.

Some screenshots of BluePhoneElite:

It is very easy to use. What you need to do is to set up your bluetooth phone following the steps in this post. After that, your phone should be detected by BluePhoneElite. I have tested it with both my Motorola E398 and V360. Both of these phones work very well with this software.

BluePhoneElite is a shareware. The trial copy can only be used for 10 days. You need to register if you want to continue to use it after 10 days. I know a trick which can reset the day count, so you can continue to use the trial copy. However, I think it is not good to disclose this trick to the public.

Google "BluePhoneElite" to find more details and download.

Yes, this is cool software. I have been using it for a while. Judging by your screenshots it looks as though you are using v1.x. You might be interested to know that there is a beta for ver. 2 that can be downloaded here: It has a number of enhancements and finally enables use of the Mac's mic and speakers. Cheers, b*.

It's been several months since the last comment here... Has there been any news or updates? Is BluePhoneElite the only Mac software for OS X Tiger? Web
