Now, I've heard there is no such thing as _easy_ when it comes to Linux and
Bluetooth, but I have seen specifics of how to make a Motorola v551 work
with BT.

Unless I've missed some recent versions, they're not really phones.  They're
Palms with a phone feature.  I too want a nice phone-sized phone, that can
be synced to my calendar.  I don't need, or want, to use it for taking
notes, playing games, email, etc, etc, etc.  I use a Palm now, but I don't
use any of the features that I couldn't get on a phone.
