I am looking for a simple, non-smart phone with the following features:
* Long battery life
* Bluetooth (to connect to a Parrot in the car)
* Good speaker and microphone for hands-free
* Low SARS rating
This last point has been the hardest for me to find. For some reason, it seems that new smart phones have much lower SARS rating.
I don't really care that it has a keyboard.
I should also mention that I am in Europe so it needs to be 2G/3G/4G which I think is different from the States.
Appreciate any help! I've been looking on CNET, Google and across the web without much luck...

I've noticed that mobile phones have a much easier time talking to each other than to most laptops/PCs. Is there any software out there that can make a PC behave like a mobile phone? For some reason I'm expecting mostly open-source, but anything is welcome.

I am looking for a new *wired* headset (headphone / microphone) for my cellphone... My current cellphone is a Samsung SCH-R430
(also called a MyShot). The thing that makes it hard is that this phone has a proprietary headphone jack (see picture here
) - not a standard one. [more inside]

How can I transfer files to/from a Motorola V3 Razr and a new Powerbook if the Bluetooth File Exchange seemingly can't do it? It recognizes the phone, but can't see the internal structure of the phone's storage system. Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools has no Mac version. I can sync contacts and calendars with iSync and via Bluetooth, but I have a friend who has the same phone, but the inverse problem: he can transfer files with Bluetooth, but can't get the phone to sync contacts and calendars.

Tech/Business: Say I were to conduct a feasibility study for social networking via mobile phones. I would like the service to enable people to define their relationships and be alerted when a specified contact is nearby (e.g., within 30m/100ft) - provided that contact has set themselves to be "findable" to that person. Is this already being done? If so, where can I find more information? If not, is this viable? Do we have the technology? How do I turn it into a profitable venture? [more inside]
