Filippo Ponzetti was among the first to try the model on the market here are his impressions and a warning for use:
"It works very well with my Ericsson phone and you can do everything you describe on the page" Mac becomes a mobile phone "
The only precaution, if during the installation of Jaguar you opted for the custom installation and you have chosen NOT to install the BSD Subsystem, the "System Preferences", despite the icon appearing, will not load the Bluetooth preferences or if you manage to load them, all the options will be deactivated and therefore unusable. 1 of Osx 10.2, "optional Install" folder, the BSDs, everything will work correctly.
