seriously doubt?

why the heck would you doubt that? It works PERFECTLY with OSX, and allows things that you just cant do using this phone with a PC. and yes, you can make ring tones for it. just make a midi file, or an MP3 of the section of the song you want, and using bluetooth file exchange put them in the "audio" folder of your phone.
again, tha RAZR (from Motorola) works GREAT with OSX, even allows address book synching.

Moto RAZR & OS X

The Motorola RAZR works beautifully with Mac OS X and bluetooth. Go to http://www.taniwha.org.uk/ to get the Motorola gprs scripts. The 3g CID2 and 3g CID2 scripts work great with the RAZR. I have mine through Cingular, and have the unlimited media net plan - $20 a month. The speed is in the ballpark of dial up, but all in all is good with connecting. If you have it through Verizon, well, I'm sorry, you're stuck with the USB cable, as Verizon cripples the bluetooth capabilites of the phone to only being capable of working with a bt headset. On the upside, the mini usb cable is a nice way to charge the phone in a pinch.

Fortunately, bluetooth tethering for the RAZR is the same as it is on the V551/V557/V600 phones. If you need any help, feel free to contact me.

PC software

ahhh... the software for doing ringtones and such from your pC is from motorola, and is QUITE expensive... and difficult to come by. a less scrupulous person may be able to find a torrent of this program somewhere. When i am at home i will tell you the name of the software. It also requires jumping through hoops with a driver that is not bundled with that program. i CAN help you if your using a PC to work on your cingular/t-mobile/rogers RAZR, but not in a forum... maybe in PM... not sure if that would violate forum rules. or, you could just by a new mac, which does all of this right out of the box without buying anything else.... "Mac OSX, it just works..."

ok....

alright, for ease of operation, and to avoid buying a new computer... without bluetooth youre just going to be able to use iSync, with USB to do adress book type stuff.

i recomennd upgrading to tiger and going to best buy and getting a 25-30 dollar USB bluetooth 2.0 dongle, then you can use bluetooth file exchange to do ringers, picture transfer (both onto and off of your phone) etc.

it would be a much smaller investment than a new computer (depending upon how honest you are, just the cost of the dongle even) and would let you use your phone in a way you want.

RAZR Ringtone

Just do a google for an mp3 editing app. I can't think of the name of one, but they are easily found. Cut your desired track to a small file, and it'll work nicely.

where do i find file exchange? if its in tiger then ill have to get it, but if i can use USB to transfer files ill be happy. as far as getting a blue tooth dongle im still only able to run usb 1.1 ..... at this current time a mac mini sounds like somthing i need for other things besides just my cell phone.

Maybe you need some kind of "

Maybe you need some kind of "driver" software or something so the mac can see it?

iSync won't work for the Veri

iSync won't work for the Verizon RAZR because Verizon decided that its customers don't need to use Bluetooth to actually transfer files or use their phone as a modem. Your only hope is to find a way to seem edit the system files to enable full bluetooth functionality, I think, but I don't know how to do that.

What I do for ringtones on my

What I do for ringtones on my T-Mobile Motorola V300 is to upload the ringtones I want to add (that I had already edited in SoundForge) to some Web space...anything that will let you download the file directly from an http address. Then I just point the Web browser on the phone to that address, and the phone automatically downloads the mp3 and asks if I want to save it. T-Mobile customers need to have a data plan (the $5/month T-Zones plan is fine), but it's definitely cheaper that way than paying $2/ringtone or whatever.

For Verizon RAZRs, IIRC there's a hack out there where you can reenable the BT. Try Googling for it.

check here for your questions

OK well, you can pretty much do anything, even reclaim your crippled Verizon phones. but, you need confidence, the ability to not be too upset if you brick your phone, and a PC (windows) to do the modding. after you mod it, then you can play with your mac. No love for modifying the phone form a Mac though.

Pretty much any question you have can be (or has already been) answered here:

http://www.motomodders.net

AMAZING forums, with a ton of knowledgeable people. It has allowed me to have so much fun with my cingular RAZR (V3)

/Bill

oh, and on your mac, Tiger needs to come to the party if you want to play with the RAZR. I know on my old G3 iMac, after i got tiger on it, i plugged a USB cable into my Cingular branded V3 RAZR (COMPLETLEY different phone than the Verizon RAZR) and then plugged it into a USB port on the iMac and it recognized it instantly.
