    It's a straight cable that connects to com ports not USB, for use with my Samsung x427m. Got it with a kit that allowed me to unlock the current phone I'm using and badly want to use it to access some stuff on a broken similar phone as well as transfer ringtones...

    Sadly the software that came with it was for unlocking only and I don't have much of an idea on how to access the data on either phone with it.

    I've tried google, I've downloaded the samsung data browser (didn't work due to perhaps lack of cable driver), and honestly just don't know exactly what to do...

    Any help or pointing in the right direction would be much appreciated.

    Cingular, and it isn't an old phone actually.

    Tried bitpim, it doesn't support my exact model but here is what happens.

    If I tell it the phone is in com port 1, which is it, and have it try to detect it, it takes a pretty long time, the phone beeps a few times even, and then it says nothing was detected, though it's obviously communicating something to it.

    If I tell it the phone is in com port 2, which it is not, when it tries to detect it it fails quickly and the phone does nothing.

    So on some level it is detecting the phone, but can't actually communicate I guess.

    I think I need drivers for the cable/phone port? That was my best guess but no luck finding one.

    DataPilot. it owns all, I think it works for serial cables. you can search for a hacked version to download, or buy it from http://www.susteen.com/
    I bought it, its worth it. My provider charges $10 to transfer your phone book from one phone to another, that alone is almost worth having the software.
