Sorry, the original Swedish version of the 9-3 had the bluetooth capability but GM removed it for cost reasons. GM has ruined Saab in many ways. There is no way to sync your phone with your 9-3.

Like a lot of SAAB components, the manufacturer has tried to make them as least attractive and susceptible to theft as possible - try fitting a stereo from one SAAB to an identical model - it won't work. It is a question of divorce and marriage.
The components (electronic ones) are married to the individual car. Your remote from another car would need to be de-prgrammed by a dealer with full SAAB diagnostic equipment (if it is possible to de-program the remote), before being married to your car. A 9-3 can have up to 3 or 4 keys (mine has two - there were three but it's a long story!) with different levels of access for the car. Without the donor car available to electronically divorce the donated remote I am not sure that they will work.
Also bear in mind that different overseas markets use different UHF frequencies for remotes for car locking systems and unless the remotes are a perfect match for your car they may never work.
Slide out the metal key insert from the remote and check the engraved code on the inside curve of your remote to see if the part number matches or comes close to the one from your original key.

you may have ruined your alarm computer wich is under seat. it can be replaced with a good used unit but a shop with Tech2 must program it. If no communication with computer m ore than likely bad.
