Bluetooth 1.2.1 and the P800

Readers using the Sony Ericsson P800 mobile phone should download Bluetooth 1.2.1 which was quietly released by Apple today (it is not in software update.)
I installed the BT 1.2.1 update and am now able to transfer MP3s from Mac OS 10.2.6 (PB17) to my P800 (R2D). Previously MP3 transfers from OS X to my P8 would fail.

What’s new in Bluetooth 1.2.1?
Bluetooth 1.2.1 provides enhanced stability and support for the following Symbian OS based mobile phones: Nokia 3650, Nokia 7650, and Sony Ericsson P800. Bluetooth 1.2.1 is recommended for use with iSync 1.1.

Sprint PCS Changes Terms of Service (Updated)

Update: the Terms of Service available from the front of the SprintPCS website do not have any language describing the use of the Vision service, but the text of the SprintPCS Advantage Agreement does state the following:

PROMOTIONS, OPTIONS AND OTHER PROVISIONS
PCS Vision. Sprint may deny or terminate service without notice where use is in connection with server devices or host computer applications, other systems that drive continuous heavy traffic or data sessions, or as substitutes for private lines or frame relay connections. PCS Vision Packs are: (a) only available with a Vision capable PCS Phone or PCS smart phone device; and (b) not available with Connection Cards, Aircards, or any other device used in connection with a computer or PDA – including phones, smart phones or other devices used with connection kits or similar phone-to-computer/PDA accessories. Sprint reserves the right to deny or to terminate service without notice for any misuse. PCS Vision Pack credits for premium services do not carry forward.

So to rehash – if you want unlimited data for your Powerbook or PDA, T-Mobile offering unlimited GPRS for $20/month attached to a voice plan is the most economical plan you can find. For data-only, $30 is still cheaper than SprintPCS’s $80/month for unlimited data.
Though if you need speed, SprintPCS’s 1xRTT Vision service is faster.
