I can't get this working on my SonyEricsson P1i and Mac. Any ideas?

I'd like to transfer/backup my sms, mms and contacts from this old phone to my Mac. Any recommendations?

Anyone seen a Wammu Mac port? That might be a useful alternative:

It is such a shame that version 3 will not see the light of the day! BPE hands down beats any competing software in the same field.

Support was great, too.

I would also pay USD 50 for this software, if there was continued development.

BluePhoneElite seems to be the only application fro Symbian 6 phones that allows one to download SMS messages from phone to computer. Ditto the phone log [albeit seems unable to get call durations unless the call was made while connected to BluephoneElite.]

What I don't understand is why this has popped up in MacUpdate now. Version 2.2.8 came out in April 2010 and that version is what you get if you click the download link.

Hi Dr-David, I just found your post.

How did you get Symbian-phone messages to download to your computer? I have an SonyEricsson P1i and have been trying to transfer the messages (sms and mms) to my Mac, but don't seem to get it working. DO you know what I could be doing wrong? Anything else you could recommend?

Hi dejoaz,

I can only speak for my Nokia X6. BE has to install a something on the phone. Once the phone and computer are talking by bluetooth, BE's message pane has a side panel with folders and subfolders. Your phone appears as one of the top level folders, the computer as another. CLicking on the folder displays its contents.

If you are displaying the phone SMS messages, they can be dragged to one of the computer folders. The message is deleted from the phone. Beware, this is irreversible. Messages cannot be copied from computer to phone.

BE does not handle MMS only SMS.

Thanks a billion for the quick response!

I've already installed the BPInstaller.SIS on the phone and when I connect the phone to the computer it shows in the left panel with folders but nothing appears in them. I can't see any contents.

Fantastic app! The best in its realm! Has some bugs, but has fenomenal options and possibilities! I am using it from its appearance and I am very sad its developer stopped its development. We all were waiting for BPE 3! There is no comparison - other apps with kind of similar possibilities cannot be compared at all.
I am sad, but I hope developer will return to its abandoned chiled one day. Until then I will use BPE 2.2.8 !

This is totally right. It's not only very stable and has many options, it is a very comfortable program too. Even compared to some windows apps it is by far the best of all. I hope that the developer would return, he is a genius :)

What a pity! I heard the developer is shutting down BluePhoneElite! :( Ok yeah, sometimes it laags a bit. But all the other things like sms, chat, basic calling, it's really the best piece of software out there for the mac. I didn't find any other apps with the same functionality. I'm using BPE2 for 2+ years now with my Symbian device

Evidently it's the end of the line for BluePhoneElite. The developer is halting development to pursue other interests. See his website.

After updating I've got many problems. Crash of application just after update. I had to delete files from Application Support/BluePhoneElite 2. After that I could launch BPE, but still error messages appear. NSInvalidArgumentException after launch. When BPE tried to connect my phone another error message appears - NSInternalInconsistencyException. It is unable to read messages from my mobile phone. :-( Something wrong with this update BPE2. I love this application, please repair bugs in this beta. Thanks for quick answer on my troubles.
