Make the Sony Ericsson K510 work with Address Book Phones
I was able to send SMS from Address Book through my Sony Ericcsson K510A by modifying a few characters in a file within the Telephony.bundle. To find this file, Control-click on Address Book (quit it first) and choose Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu. Then open Contents » Resources, and Control-click on Telephony.bundle. Again pick Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu, then navigate into Contents » Resources. There you'll see a file named ABDeviceCommandSets.plist.

Open this file with a text editor, and look around line 80 for this entry:
<key>ABDeviceModelStrings</key>
<array>
    <string>K750</string>
</array>
You must change K750 to K510, then save your changes and quit the editor and you'll be able to send SMS messeges, receive them, see Caller ID, and be able to place calls through your Mac. If someone could modify the code to get it to answer calls or hang up calls, it would be great!

The Sony Ericsson Address Book Enabler adds SMS and Calls support for over 40 new Sony Ericsson phones, including the K510, K800, K810, K600, Z610 and many other popular models.

Unlike this hint, it also supports dialling and answering calls, doesn't disable the K750, and comes with an easy installer, meaning you don't have to manually 'hack' your Address Book application.

I'll second that, and add there's another company: nova media also supply a phone plugin. (I prefer the mobile.feisar approach of one plugin per phone; it's also cheaper)
