Use and Don't Lose Your Cell Phone Data

Substantial Synchronization Software

After we installed the Samsung Software PC Studio 3.0 and the related drivers, we checked the cable connection by playing with the Phone Explorer. For some reason, this connection type only delivered half of the Bluetooth performance.

After several other Bluetooth sync processes with other devices, Samsung Studio refused to establish a Bluetooth connection with the phone. The hardware was not the reason for this, because Windows Bluetooth connection continued to work properly. In our opinion, the concurrently installed sync programs might have messed with the COM-ports of our test laptop, which should not cause problems for an average user that does not use multiple synchronization tools.

This is the main window of Samsung's PC Studio.

You administer your files using the Phone Explorer.

The software package covers almost all features of the mobile phone. You can manage contacts and Outlook appointments as well as add this type of information through different file types like vcf- or MS Excel csv files. Using "Manage messages" you can either write short messages on the computer or save already existing phone messages to the computer. The synchronization button triggers the actual sync process with the phone.

When you click "Manage files", the file manager allows you to relocate phone files, e.g. to copy music files or office documents to your phone or computer. Music, photo and video processing as well as media player software round out the package. It is also possible to use the phone's soft-modem with your computer.

Here we want to transfer our Outlook files to the phone. In the main window we open the Phone editor by selecting "Manage contacts and more". Now we can import and manage contacts and tasks. If some of the desired data does not exist on the phone but does exist on the computer (see the lower left), we can simply import it.
