My bro and I got new cell phones this week. And after seeing all the cool stuff that could be done, my mom wants to be able to do the same. Problem is, her phone can't get online. So, I went out and bought her a USB cable to transfer stuff from the computer to the phone. I thought that it would show up as a removable storage device like my flash drive.
Nope. The phone doesn't show up AT ALL!! I installed the proper drivers, and nothing seemed to work. After many hours of reading, I learned that I will need software to get the data (cell phone wallpapers) onto the phone. But the only free software I found, Bitpim, does not work with my phone.
I don't know if any are you are phone savy, but help would be greatly appreciated. Will I need to buy additional software? Can I get the phone to show up as a removable storage device? Did I waste $30 on the USB cable? The computer is Windows XP Service Pack 2, and the cell phone is a Sprint Samsung A560. Help, please!!
