    I'm using it and it does what you describe. Here is an excerpt from
    FMA's page:


    Fma: It's Magic!

    Hi Guys,

    If you own a T610 and a computer, go out and buy yourself a bluetooth
    USB adapter (less than 40 US$), and go to the source forge website and
    download the latest version of FMA and its associated programme float's
    media control. It's free.

    This is what you can do with FMA:

    1. Ordinary things like browse through the files in your cellphone,
    and transfer files to and from the cellphone (pictures, themes and midi
    files). Midi songs are small files. You can send a certain number of
    them to the phone, and use a hands free set to listen to music while on
    the move.

    2. Write your SMS from the computer and send them. This is an
    advantage since it is easier to write from a computer keyboard. Also
    receive your SMS directly to your computer. Save your old SMS in the
    harddisk for later reference.
    To send and receive SMS, you don't need to press any button on the
    cell phone. You just leave it in its corner, and you do everything with
    your computer.

    3. Make and receive calls from your computer. You must of course have
    a headphone, and enable audio gateway on your bluetooth programme. If
    you have pictures of your friends, you can link them with their phone
    number, so that when they call you or when you call them, you see a
    small semi-transparent window pop up with their picture. I like this
    feature. You can record the conversation in your hard disk if you want.
    Again, no need to press anything on your phone. Just leave it alone.

    4. Organise your phonebook in the computer (again, it is easier to do
    it on a computer keyboard), and synchronise with the phone. If you have
    your phonebook in Microsoft outlook, this is how you can import it to
    FMA: with the programme that came with your phone (XTND connect), you
    synchronise your cellphone with outlook, and then you synchronise your
    phone with FMA. You then edit the phonebook with FMA, add pictures and
    customised ring tones to your best friends numbers, and synchronise
    with your phone. This works very well, believe me. FMA writes a log
    that tells you which changes were made to the phonebooks in the
    cellphone and in FMA.

    5. Write notes in the computer and save them in the phone: bank
    account number, passwords, car registration, etc...

    6. Activate and edit a profile for your phone on the computer. You can
    also switch off the cellphone from the computer.

    7. Phone keypad (under tools menu): you can take full control of the
    phone from the computer. For example the cellphone is in the sitting
    room, you are in the bed room with the computer (if your house is not
    too big), you can, from the computer, take a picture, and view it in
    the computer, so you can see on your computer what is going on in the
    sitting room. For example to see if a visitor is worth your attention.

    8. The best now, and this is magic! I had never seen such a thing
    before, and I don't understand why SE doesn't mention it among the
    features of T610.
    You can control the PC from the phone. Unlike other remote
    controllers, you have here a menu appearing on your cellphone. You can
    scroll up and down the menu using the joystick.

    -You can move the mouse pointer using the joystick, right and left
    click, select and click anything. This requires you to look at the
    computer monitor so you can see where to move the pointer.

    With the following features, you can switch off the monitor to save
    power, since a menu appears on the cellphone.
    -You can switch off, hybernate or put on stand by the computer from
    the phone.
    You have a menu on your phone saying "hybernate", "turn off", "stand
    by". You scroll with the joystick, and press to select.
    -You can run and control more than 10 different popular programmes
    from the cellphone. The most controllable is the popular music and
    video player "winamp version 2 and 5".
    I have several songs and DivX movies in an external 120GB USB
    harddrive, organised in playlists: frank sinatra, julio iglesias,
    celine dion, adult movies, action movies, etc...
    On the cellphone accessory menu, I select FMA, winamp, select
    playlist, action movies, I am presented with the list of action movies
    in my playlist (all this appear on the cellphone!), select "terminator
    3", and it starts playing on my 17 inches flat screen computer monitor.
    The same for music. You can select to turn "shuffle" and "repeat" on
    and off from the phone.
    You can off course play, pause, select previous or next track.
    You can change the volume, and see the volume slider move left and
    right on winamp.

    I can control WinDVD, turn subtitles on and off, full screen on and
    off, select a chapter, change the volume.

    With bluetooth, all this can be done while you are not in the same
    room with the computer. This is real, I am doing it everyday.

    I am sure I didn't mention all the nice things one can do with FMA.
    Visit the FMA forum and learn to merge different scripts. You just need
    to know how to copy and paste.

    FMA, more than likely, on sourceforge
