Add Sony Ericsson S500i to Address Book Phones
To add support for the Sony Ericsson S500i in Address Book, do the following. In the Finder, control-click on Address Book and choose Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu. Navigate into Contents » Resources, then control-click on Telephony.bundle and again choose Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu. In the new window that opens, navigate into Contents » Resources, and then edit ABDeviceCommandSets.plist in your favorite pure text editor (perhaps make a backup first, just in case). Search for K700, and when you find it (it will look like <string>K700<string>), add this new entry below it:
<string>S500</string>
Save the changes and quit the editor, and you'll now be able to dial and send SMS directly from Address Book. It will also enable you to pick up the phone from Address Book.

But the "Voicemail" button won't work, nor a couple of other features.

For full Address Book functionality you should install the Sony Ericsson Address Book Enabler, which adds complete Address Book functionality for about 50 of the latest Sony Ericsson phones.

This little tool is awesome!! I've been trying to find a SMS client for my computer for a while now and none come close to this. Most of them require you to use a widget and then put a string of wierd computer numbers/characters at the beginning which the recipient can't decipher (plus the message doesn't even say it's from you). For $3 this little app uses your own phone to send the messages - not some 3rd party (as far as I can tell). I highly recommend it over other apps like Callwave.

To enable answering from the phonebook:

find
<string>at*EVA</string>
a couple of lines above the S500 line
and replace it with
<string>ATA</string>

save, restart

While you're at it,

replace
<string>at*EVH</string>
with
<string>ATH</string>
a couple of lines below S500

This wil enable you to redirect the call to voicemail.

Hi, I'm a Callwave user and I happen to like it a lot (the fact that it's free is a plus). You can read my review (plusses and minuses) here:
