How to get software to sync to computer?

Does anyone know how to sync the phone to the computer. I have tried plugging it in to the usb port, pressing connect to computer, going to the sprint and samsung website to find the software, even sprint support.....no fix.
When I plug it in, the computer doesn't show it in the my computer screen. Using vista.

I like this phone, but...

I came over from Verizon. Waited patiently for my contract to expire and did a lot of research on plans that would work for me, and so far after just a few days I really like my Rant. My problems so far are relegated to Ringtones and data files. It seems that if you add anything to the data card it won't let you use it on your phone - thumbnail images, midi files, mp3...nada. If you aren't buying it from Sprint Connect or taking a picture of it, don't expect to be able to use it.

File Formats that this phone can support?

I've been using the MP3 player that is accessible by:

Home Button > Tools > Mass Storage > File Manager > Memory Card > ..

Then selecting the MP3 I want and playing from there. I absolutely LOVE it, and this phone. However I prompt the question since I have not been able to find any information or figure it out on my own..

What all are the file formats that it can support to be played? I know you view/listen to .jpg, .txt and .mp3 from there but I would like to maybe view video also b just copying a video onto my MicroSD card and popping it in.

Thanks a ton!

Samsung_luhv why the complaints?

You give the Rant a crappy review because it does not compare to your Centro.
Why would you not do your research before buying the Rant if it is not up to par with the Centro?

For someone like me who is used to having an old Sanyo flip the Rant is an excellent upgrade.

The Rant is a 4.5 out of 5 at least but because of your low useless review it is now below 4.

Go take your Centro and get out of here already.

Questions before i get it?

I have the pink centro right now, and am thinking about getting the samsung rant...but i have a couple questions before i do....

Can you download ringtones from myxertones??

Does the web browser work good for myspace and is it fast? because when i had the rumor, it would always shut of and restart!


Does it have the express or demand app? like the muziq and the centro does, like checking the movies times, weather and all that? because i love that and would like to get a phone with that option.

and can you customize the colors instead of having black backgrounds and all?

and is the picture caller id screen FUll and big?

so how is speaker and longevity of this phone ?

I know it is too new to know how long it will last but i heard quite a few people complain the 450 slider wore out pretty quick.

How is the speaker quality?

I have had samsung flip phones in the past and hated them. The speakers were never loud enough and were always distorted.

Anyone know how this one will be? What about the camera quality? I have an LG Fusic now.

Blackberry Flip? Lotus, and one click

why a flip blackberry? looks okay but do you really want to have to worry about hardware, software, and breaking it in half?

lotus? fashion statement, i dont think so. looks like the creators of the Scion xB got ahold of blitz and thought it needed a little bit of tweaking... still have no idea which pocket it would go...

one click? as long as they dont start restricting the internet and downloads like verizon its all good. looks like a good way to simplify the interfaces. now if only all manufaturers could agree on a charger design.
