    I have a samsung A940 with a USB data cable. I have used my phone as a modem before on my powerbook and it works fine. I want to know how to mount my phone so i can back up files from it. I could not find the OSX demo of data pilot online. And I could not get bitpim to work. Any ideas?

    what data? I'm not familiar with samsung, but sony ericsson phones work amazingly with OS X... you can bluetooth transfer any file from the phone to the mac (and vice versa in most cases), and the free iSync program automatically synchronizes your contacts, events and to do lists between the phone and your address book / calendar app. fucking sweet :bigthumb:

    also SE phones >>> other shit

    useing BT i can send pictures from my phone to my computer but besides that it is a little buggy. I want to send my Games/Apps with USB. I need the computer to see my phone as more then just a modem.

    :werd: that's how I do it on my SE T610. Some phones support browse mode and others don't, but for my purposes I usually only xfer one file at a time so I do it from the phone.
