Best phone for an Apple

I am probably going to get a new phone... I want to be able to sync contacts with my powerbook g4 and I want to be able to get pictures off my phone (using bluetooth)... which phone is the best... I don't really want a fat one... so I was looking between the Moto E815, Moto V710, and the LG VX8100.... the E815 looks like the best option but I dunno how mac compatible it is... anyway, if any of you have experience with those phones and an apple or can suggest a phone that would be helpful...
here is a link to my choices

^^^ That link doesnt seem to work anymore.
But do you have the Motoral Razor available in your area? It has bluetooth capabilites so you can sync with your computer wirelessly. Another one to look at is a Sony Ericsson T616, he has it and loves it, uses it with his little powerbook to sync contacts and when his phone rings iTunes will turn the volume down so he can answer his cell phone and such. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Re: Best phone for an Apple

VZW doesn't use the Razor, rhigareda. Nor do they use Sony Ericsson phones. I'm not all that impressed with the Razor anyway.

Anyway, 05mazda3man, you're going to have a hard time with what you want because VZW doesn't let people do what you want. I can tell you that the e815 will sync addressbook and such perfectly using iSync. It's also hackable to support picture transfers - though I haven't tried it on mine... crazyitalian041 does it on his though.

I haven't checked out the vx8100 yet, though I do like LG's in general. No idea how easy/hard their bluetooth is to deal with though.

Get the e815. You can hook up your laptop to browse the internet with it. The phone is sick.

VZW sucks... no Razor no Sony Ercisson...what kind of crap is that...Razors got a huge screen and really long battery life..that really the only reason I suggested that and the blue tooth syncing.

Not really:

Battery:
Razr: 200 hr standby / 3 hr talk
e815: 300 hr standby / 4.67 hr talk

Memory:
Razr: 5.5 MB (not expandable)
e815: 40 MB (plus transflash slot, up to 256 MB in the slot I believe, maybe 512)

Screen:
Main: 176x220 px 262,000 color TFT for both
Front: 98x64 px, 4096 color STN for both

Camera:
Razr: 0.3 MP
e815: 1.3 MP

And of course, the e815 supports EV-DO, the RAZR does not.
