I am planning to write a program that will send my address book information or phone book information to my cell phone, the bridge is using bluetooth between my PDA and cell phone. The models are Tungsten T3 and a Sony Ericsson T616. Can I do that? If I use Java as the programming language, can I do that too? Thank you very much, Andy

Probably not. A few phone SDK's allow you to read the local address book, but I have not seen any that allow you to write to it. I suspect this is to prevent a malicious or malfunctioning app from destroying all your data.

However, virtually every phone manufacturer provides their own propriatary SDK functionality. Its certainly possible that one or both of the handsets you listed can do it, the only way to find out is to track down the specific SDK's and check out their documentation.

You could try using MIDP (from SUN) or SuperWaba for the PDA application. I've worked with SuperWaba and if I remember corectly, it can use bluetooth technology.
Good Luck !
