Ok so its not a comupter but the question is about hooking it up to a computer.

I recently upgraded my phone for the 1st time in 4 years and got a package deal so that my wife got the same one.

I'm looking for a way to dowload MP3 files and pics directly onto the phone rather than pay for downloads from the cellular provider. The product that I've found seems to get mixed reviews including one that says his provider made it so he can't use the ringtones downloaded.

The phone is a Motorola V551,

the product is MOTOROLA USB Mobile Phone Tool Version 3.0:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0006Z6LKM/ref=pd_ecc_rvi_1/104-0614950-5171141

Does anyone here have any experiance with this product or a substitute? This is the 1st phone I've had where you can download ringtones, backgrounds, ect... and the wife is already chomping at the bit to customize her phone.

I've been wondering about this with my v180 as well.
It's got a USB port, I might as well use it.

Do a search for a program called "p2kman.zip". It is a very simple application that allows you to transfer files from pc to phone and phone to pc.

Edit: I found this link. http://anton.tbg.ru/files/p2kman.zip

Zims, if this is against the rules, I'll take it down.

I just picked up a v180 a few weeks ago and all I can find on the web is that you need to buy the USB drivers from your provider.

I have a V180, and the program I mentioned above works with it. All you need is a standard USB cable.

I'm ignorant of why it would be against the rules. Is it pirated? If so, please delete the link.

I don't have this phone and have no idea what you have linked to.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

It's not pirated, it is freeware. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something you frown upon.

Since you have a v180 one more quick question, do straight MP3s work, or do they need to altered to another type of file?

OK maybe two, have you tried importing games & pictures?

Straight mp3's work, but you need to shrink the file size down. There is only about a meg of memory in those phones.

I have not tried importing any games, but I have imported a bunch of photos. 128 x 128 pixels is the limit I believe...

We've discussed at length in previous threads how difficult it is to leave AOhelL. Now you can read their Retention Manual and feel vindicated that it's not just difficult operators. It's company policy!
