PC Suite Windows 7

Got the Pantech 7040. Nice little phone to do all the basic functions. ATT said I would be able to link it to my computer. Downloaded the PCsuite software, hooked up my usb cable. Looked like ti would install the driver and gave me an error on install. Can't get it to install properly for the life of me. When I check under device manager for Pantech HUSB Driver it shows an error code of 37. Tried bluetooth connection. Got bluetooth dun to work, but PC suite software doesn't pick up the phone at all or show if it's connected. Anyone get pc suite to work on windows 7 with pantech 7040(link)? How did you do it. I just want it to be able to sync it with Microsoft outlook, and this phone would do everything I need it to.

I use hotmail for email. The only way I see avoiding the $5/mo charge is ...

Is it AT&T's software or Pantech?

I know AT&T always has a say, but comparing the software from a Pantech AT&T device to, say the Samsung Strive, it's pretty different.

I always figured it had more to do with the manufacturer, unlike Verizon (I'm not sure about their current ones), where every phone had that same menu styling.
Both. Yes, the manufacturer probably does most of the work, but with a device like this, they are building to AT&T's spec.

It's up to AT&T to mandate a good browser, good messaging client, and good social networking features. If they were smart, th...
