I just purchased the Sanyo MM-5600 but I am new to cell phones. I would appreciate some advice on software. I am interested in two things: managing my phone (entering, editing and backing up telephone numbers and other information between my phone and XP PC) and creating my own ringtones, backgrounds and screensavers. First, assuming money is no object, what are the very best software products out there to accomplish these tasks? Second, what are the *low cost* alternatives to the industry standard products. Thanks for your advice.
The best software is without question the Futuredial software. The good news is that it is also the low cost solution, as the contact-sync and the program that allows synchronization of ringers and screen savers as well as the "Sprint unapproved" dialer, and all worked superbly on previous Sanyo handsets. The bummer is that they have not yet released it yet when I last checked, but check www.futuredial.com regularly. It should be out soon. There may be something else out there, but I don't know of anything as good.
