    Hi guys,

    I got my first Android phone yesterday, and I was impressed by the look and feel of the phone, but as of yesterday night I've been starting to get quite disappointed with a lot Android OS limitations, I have an old G4 Mac running Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11 on PPC and it's safe to say my Mac doesn't communicate with the phone at all :eek:

    I looked to transfer some files from my machine's bluetooth to the HTC Magic. When it couldn't handle even that because of Android OS limitations on bluetooth transfers, I certainly wasn't a happy customer :mad:

    I don't want to be forced to using Windows to work with my phone, please tell me these wild oversights in Android development will be covered sometime soon and that Mac OS X will get the support it too deserves! :p :(

    (Sorry for the sombre tone of my intro, but I really am desperate to get my phone up and running exactly how I want to, but at the moment it seems my hands are tied :thinking::p)

    Thank you, that was the first extremely useful tip here on the forums!

    I got my phone from Vodafone Greece, and it didn't include any full instruction manual, and I am searching for the full pdf instruction manual as we speak :)

    when you plug the phone in, drag down the notification bar, click mount, there is a folder on the phone called manual (I THINK?) and within that there are the manuals for the phone in pdf format that you can open using a pdf reader ... for mac.. i guess
