    ive got the answer, go out and buy a serial to usb adapter, cost you a less than a tenner, but you can connect it via usb!

    ive used it before with mice, using a serial to ps2 connection, but that was a very long time ago!

    it SHOULD in theory work...but i dont want to promise you just in case!

    best thing to do is go to local pc shop pick one up, and if it doesnt then take it back and get your money back

    nothing ventured...nothing gained

    well, i was really wondering, because samsung only make serial data cable, even the program like Easy GPRS uses com1 which is serial port. But for some reason, mine doesn't detected it, it said to turn off your computer and hook up the wire with both PC and phone shut off, then turn them on. But that doesnt' work. =P

    is there no software or drivers to install?

    surely with a serial connection there would be drivers that need to be installed.

    usb is plug and play, serial is not (or shudnt be!)

    i suppose you could ask samsung, take a look on there site they may have the drivers

    i have a nokia 7610 with usb data suite and you still had to install the dku-5 cable, and that was usb
