Windows 7 Drivers

For those of us working in the cell phone industry this will be something that you want to find out...

I am a US Cellular Authorized Dealer and I sold a laptop connect card to a customer yesterday. Once installed the device was not discovered by Windows. After a call to US Cellular I was informed that you have to go to their website and get the download for the drivers. The drivers for XP and Vista are not on the disk that comes with the connect card.

Just wanted to save you some time and work...You should check with your carrier to find out what you need to do if you run into this... if you need help and are with US Cellular

Trying to download the Windows Mobile Device Center

I just got the Touch Pro 2, it came with a cd that has the software for the handbook and the Windows Device Center. The device center won't load. Then I went to the Windows marketplace and tried to get it there. It acts like its installing but then it just closes. I cant activate the syncing without it. Any ideas?

Syncronizing the Droid with Corporate Microsoft Exchange Server

O.K. So i never want to leave Verizon, but my the phone selection was beginning to get challenging when blackberries are not an option. So I ran out like others to purchase the DROID. Such an amazing PDA. Every aspect of the phone is great, but I am really having a problem with getting up and running with my office. Here is the issue: Active Sync and numerous corporate office servers require security measures to fully enable the DROID to have the calendar, e-mail and contacts to be pushed without having to stop by at google. To get it to work the following security measures must be present: 6-digit PIN device lock, remote wipe, certificate-based authentication, direct push, and online GAL lookup. Active sync contains all of these meas...

Anyone know of cell phones that may INCREASE in value?

I'm wondering if I should just go for the phones that really just look plain weird, or have a unique design to them

The phones that are really worth some change right now, at this second (various blackberries and palm pre) would never get their asking price in, say, 30 years from now, because all the value in those phones is the inovation, and inovation loses value when everyone ends up doing it.

Trying to think of something I know a bit about that I can collect, keep new in box, and would be worth some money for my kids or something. Laughing

Any suggestions?

High RF?

Does higher RF mean better signal?

Over time I’ve heard and read the Moto E815 is the reception king, but it’s not listed on the top 10 list.

Not to get side tracked though, Higher RF = better reception?

Need help phone not working Motorola

Well It started Wednesday. It would recieve phone calls, which I could answer by sliding it up, and recieve text messages. Problem I couldn't press any buttons only the power swich to turn it off and on. Nothing else would work... Then I turned it off the rest of the night Wendesday night, and the next day I messed with it a bit, and finally it started to work. Well I woke up this morning and it's not working... I can turn it off and on, and recieve calls, but still can access my v-mail, my text message, and I can't call out... I don't know what is wrong with it. I've only had the phone for maybe 6 months...
