Linux only: Blueman, the Bluetooth manager for many Linux desktops, has update to provide a friendlier, easier means of connecting your phones, earpieces, and even 3G-connected devices to your system.

But the menus and spelled-out options have improved considerably, as detailed at Blueman's screenshot gallery, and a good number of bug fixes are thrown in, naturally. Ubuntu users can add Blueman's PPA repository to their sources lists and update to get the 1.0 download; other distributions shouldn't have too much trouble with the source package. Blueman is a free download for Linux systems only. Note: Screenshot from Blueman page; I got my Verizon VX8300 hooked up with Blueman, but it's too restricted and wonky to offer any fancy details.
