    I use my sony ericsson K700 in combination with FMA. I can do everything with it and it isn't a smartphone, hehe.

    K700i has automatic desktop and media player remote built in if you enable HID device in the BT settings on your PC for th K700i. Then whenever they connect via BTt he phone asks to start remote control automatically.
