    ok i ordered a motorola v505 usb data cable the other day. i cant connect it to my comp. i dl the mobile phone tools 2.11 I THINK. but it says i need to unlock my phone? is that what i need to do to transfer pics from my phone to my comp, and vise versa...comp to phone. also would that allow me to transfer mp3 on my comp to my phone to use as ringtones?

    most importantly how do i get connected? i have the phone(moto v505) i have the usb cable...no install cd's or anything..., and i dl something called mobile.phone.tools how do i get everything to work?? thanks

    go in control panel then phone and modem and see if your motorola device is visible. then click properties then go to diagnostics and run query. if all goes well launch phone tools u should have np. sometimes u gotta hit query a bunch of times b4 it works

    1) i have a control panel, but phone and modem is not an option..i have xp. so im not sure on where to go from there. fix that, went to phone and modem...but unsure from there cuz theres nothing that says mobil phone. so im not sure what too look for....

    2) i juzt dl mobiledit and that doesnt work either. when i plug my phone into the usb cable the comp does that sound that it recognizes it. so i dont think its my usb cable...this is juzt really frustrating

    i had the same problem when i tried to connect my phone to the computer. i have a motorola v505, the usb data cable, and the lastest version of mobile phone tools. the program also tells me that i have to unlock my phone when i try to connect. As far as i know, you cannot do anything unless your phone is unlocked. You have to get an unlock code from your dealer or buy one online. i've been looking, but so far have found no way to unlock it for free. The codes cost about $25.
    I'm almost positive that the phone lock is the problem, because i had a friend with an unlocked v505 that was able to connect with no problems.
