Replying to: USB by galway
I plugged the cable into the phone, and then my mac, but after 5 impatient minutes of waiting for the drive to show up on my desktop, nothing happened so I pulled the cord.
I have an sd card reader, so I have been able to interface between the computer and phone via the SD card. You need to format the card, and "Create Folders" from the tools menu on the phone. Then you can drag pictures to the Pictures folder, and music to the Multimedia folder. When the card has images on it, and you insert it to the card reader, iPhoto will start up just like plugging in a camera.
After you enter your contact information, you are able to back it up to the SD card, which you can then drag into the mac's Address Book for an easy back up on your computer.
All in all, this is a fine telephone so far. It was NOT, however, the simple no brainer that I experienced with my Girlfriends' Motorola phone with T-Mobile service. Bluetooth contact exhange, file exchange, iSync'ing, everything worked so simple from the box that you didn't even need to read any directions. The 8400 will force you to study, find workarounds, and and otherwise 'tinker' for optimum results.
