I am getting a new cell phone and want to make sure it's one that is fully compatible with OS X 10.4.11.

I have used an LG lx350 and after pairing, which works fine, in Bluetooth Setup Assistant, it looks for services to use with your mobile phone and then states "There were no supported services found on your device".

Is there a list of phones that work fully with my G5 somewere? A list that shows which phone services that are supported by OS X 10.4.11?

I would like to have a phone that does work with my machine!

    You may be better off contacting the phone manufacturer to confirm if compatible with Tiger.

    Suggest that you also cross-post in the Tiger Forums.

    I agree with Baby Boomer's comments. Even though a phone may have bluetooth it may have very little in the way of services.

    Many "bluetooth" phones provide only the ability to connect a bluetooth headset. Other handsets may also provide the ability to do some limited file transfer for photos or music. Usually you need a "smartphone" to get bluetooth capabilities like bluetooth modem, etc.
