5300 and bitpim


Aug 24, 2006, 2:40 AM
Just in case anybody was curious I was able to add ringtones onto my little brother's 5300 using the 8300 settings in bitpim. I would reccomend adjusting the (db) level to 2.0, the first batch of tones I did for him weren't loud enough. - adios

Thanks Lost_boy.
I tried this but didn't work for me! Sad
What settings and cable did you use?
I tried 'Other CDMA' and Filesystem as well but couldn't connect.
Maybe my cable or driver?? - anyone know how I can tell? Shows up as 3 devices in WinXP Device Manager, just like the 5200 does.
My cable & BitPIM work great with my wife's 5200.
I have a straight USB cable for the 5200/6100/7000 with the middle bump filed off so it fits the 5300.

sorry about the crazy late reply, I actually connected the 5300 via bluetooth, I bought a dongle for like 20 bucks at frys, its payed it self back like 100 times. It saves you the hassle of having to find drivers, companies changing cables ect

How did you get the bluetooth working with the 5300?

set up the phone's pc connection for bluetooth and connected it with a bluetooth dongle.

I can connect the phone to the PC and transfer Business Cards, but cannot recognize the phone in BitPim. How did you set that up? Thanks!
