cellphone query

2007-10-05 18:07:41.736402+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I got a new cell phone. Nothing special, a Nokia 6555. I also spent $30 (gulp) on a cable so that I could, hopefully, retrieve the pictures off of it, possibly use it as an MP3 player, and maybe even see if this beasty can run Java, so I could upload Java apps to it. When I plug it in to my Linux box I get a little popup with previews of the pictures it's taken, but I can't seem to download them or mount this device as a drive.

Anyone played with this?

BitPim did magic for my LG last time I was playing with phones.. You may also connect your laptop to it via Bluetooth, both for remote connectivity as well as file sharing/moving.

Our new gadget (came today) was an ATT/vTECH EP5632 answering machine and base station, w 2 extra handsets. Place your bluetooth enabled phone (I'm using a MotoQ) near it and poof, you have house phones that use your cell phone to place calls, or answer them. This is really nice as we no longer have a landline. My phone thinks it attached to a car handsfree system, so far (two calls) it's been pretty slick. It's supposed to work with two cell phones.. when Nancy gets home we'll try her "pink" LG chocolate.
