Connect 6030 to PC through USB

by sterc    May 31, 2006, 6:04 AM


I just got a Nokia 6030 from Cingular here in the US and have been
trying to hook it up to my computer. According to both Nokia and
Cingular (who was probably told by Nokia) the phone has no official
cable connectors and that the only way to transfer stuff to it would be
through WAP.

I did some research on my own and came across a few websites that list
some unofficial cables. I also keep coming across contradicting posts.
Some say that you cannot connect it, others say that you can connect
it. And those who claim to have been successful have posted information
which is insufficient and terrible (I mean painfully terrible) to read.
Here's some links for your amusement:

If you look at the phone, it has what looked at first a 4 pin USB
connector. I tried the cable that I connect my digital camera to the PC
on the phone but it was too big- must be a mini USB. From my research,
I found out that the port is meant for data support services, usually
carried out by Nokia tech, but supposedly people have had luck
connecting it to the computer.

I am also convinced that the phone can be connected to the PC because
the 6030 is also supported by public software like MobiMB.

Another connection that is possible according to these posts is through
pins that exist on the back of the phone. You have to take the battery
off (and this is where it gets vague) some say the end of the cable
connects straight into the phone, others say it must be attached to the
battery and the whole assembly fits into the phone.

I don't think I have ever come across anything more confusing and
frustrating than finding instructions for connecting a phone to the
computer. I had a Motorola V220 which was a pain in the neck to connect
to the PC and sync with Motorola Mobile Tools. With the V220, I could
at least use a regular 4 pin USB.

Anyway, I would greatly appreciate any feedback from those who might
have had luck with this phone.
