Samsung 5 item bundle quick review
For $23, I thought some of you might be interested. I am in no way affiliated with the seller or Amazon.
It includes a USB cable (Charges phone too,) adapter with mic and call answer/end button providing a 3.5mm (AKA 1/8" mini jack,)one more without the mic/switch PC Studio, a wired stereo hands-free and a pair of cheezy yet Samsung branded (everything in the kit is Samsung branded) 3.5mm earbuds.
Clearly, the two hot items are the USB and switchable mic adapter, as I have downloaded the software already. Now I can play my music or take calls through my car stereo, or use my iPod headphones (which are much better than the included items.)

I want to be able to put a text file on to my phone, and read it from the phone fairly easily.

Mostly, I just want to be able to shuffle through all songs, and I see that is an option. But I have so...
Made ringtones too big for phone

-How do I take a picture from my phone to my computer (via USB)?
- No matter what, I cant turn a MP3 clip(as short as 9 secs) into a ring tone. How do I turn it into a file it will read?
-How am I supposed to convert a MP3 to a mmf? Why should I even have too? This phone seems like it cant do anything unless you pay for it first.
