removing write protection on a micro SD Card

I have a San Disc 4 GB Micro SD card that I have used in 4 different cell phones and PDA's.

After going through a HTC Touch and a Blackberry Curve 8330 in the first thirty days, I settled on a Palm Treo 800W even though it has its own "cons."

I noticed that my memory volume continued to grow on this card even though I was removing some music as well as adding some as I sync'd this phone over a period of several months. I am running windows XP pro and Active Sync, using Windows Media Player.

Using the Explore tab within Active Sync, I "deleted" the folders for my music files. At that point, I checked the Windows/Settings/System/Memory on the phone and it was evident that the memory was still in use and almost full.

I then took...

how to transfer pictures from handphone to PC?


I was very happy with my new Nokia phone because it has a very nice camera. When I am travelling, i can easily take the picutures and send them to my girlfriend who is thousands miles away in Shanghai. But after using the phone for a few days, I found out that my phone is giving me a bad headache on how to transfer the photos taken to my computer so that I can send to her through Email, which is free. I tried many times but couldn't figure out how to do that...I feel very frustrated at my phone although i like other functions a lot.

Do anyone has any solution to solve this problem? My friends recommended me a product called "Snapmedia" from a company called "FutureDial"...I am not sure whether there are other products can help...

transfering video from LG Rumor to computer

I just picked up a USB cable and I can't figure out how to transfer pictures or videos from my LG Rumor phone to my computer.

I know I can email pictures to myself, but I have a video I want to transfer to my computer and it says the file is too big to send via email. So, I picked up the USB cable thinking the problem was solved.

I'm not having any luck. Please help!

I want bluetooth that actually works - anyone?

So, here's the deal, I've had these combinations in recent months/years, none have worked reliably enough to use all the time:

Treo 650
Treo 700, W, WX & P
Blackberry (forgot model number, newer VZW one - hated the BB in general so moot point I guess)
Moto Q

Motorola h700 & h850
Plantronics 510 and lower level model (210 or something?)
2 Jabra's

Of all of these I cannot recall the exact combinations I've tried, I just know I've had each of the above at some recent point in time and have NEVER found a combination that JUST FLAT WORKS.

The ones I am most concerned about at this point working are Treo's (755P and the up coming 800W) as I'm quite sure I'm going to stick with t...

Phone Book Transfer for Sanyo 7050

I have a data cord for my Sanyo phones and I found BitPim would allow me to copy my phone book from my RL4930 into the program, but it doesn't list the SCP7050 as a supported model so I can't put the phone book into it. Does anyone know of another way to transfer between these 2 models without spending $1000 on a CelBrite machine?

Need help with Motorokr and LG 8700

Had the phone replaced 2x by the verizon tech, all of the sudden, I would be in the middle of a call and the motorokr says "connection dropped" and The phone would still show a connection. Therefore I couldn't even pickup the handset to finish the call. Just to clarify, the bluetooth connection was dropped not the call. Good signal on phone.

SO I replaced the motorokr with a brand new one today, and the same thing happens.

What am I missing. The verizon tech said LG was having issues with their bluetooth on this model. But it worked fine for 6 months prior.

Could I have gotten 3 bum phones in a row? I have replaced every possible variable. Do I just need to find a different phone?

Can anyone suggest anything?

Bluetooth connection help

I have a SonyErikkson Z525a phone and LG-HB750 BT headset. I love the headset but it is giving me FITS!!!! AT&T store said they didn't know either. BT connects immediately upon turning on phone. Disconnects after one call and WILL NOT reconnect unless I turn the phone off. Sometimes it will stay connected for days, then disconnect. I have reset settings, associated with/deleted profiles, deleted other BT connections (computer) from phone, etc. Any suggestions? Rolling Eyes
