    I have a low-end Samsung cell phone. It's the X497. I found OnSync on Versiontracker for software to transfer data from my iBook, and am considering buying a data cable so I can manage my address book from Entourage to the phone.

    Just curious if anyone has a similar setup and if it works for you, or if you're satisfied. I'm not really in need of a Blackberry or Treo or anything more expensive.

    I have a Motorola v265...it's not really low end, but it's not super high either. I bought a datacable on ebay for $7 shipped...the things are SO cheap on there!

    It didn't come yet, but I tried my friend's datacable and I actually think it's pretty cool to sync phones. It's cool with verizon because they block all the transferring ringtones/pictures, but there's all this software that let's you do it anyway. :cool:

    My phone is compatible with iSync natively, so I didn't try any software, but I did sync up my address book and stuff! Makes it a heck of a lot easier than typing in everyone's name on the phone.

    I say you buy a datacable and see how it goes. They're pretty cheap, and you can resell it on ebay and loose a few bucks at most.

    Good luck. :)

    Thanks for the reply. I'm going to splurge on the cable and see what happens.

    Yes, I use Cingular.

    I found a cable on eBay for $0.02! Shipping was $5.95, so $5.97 WITH TWO MEGA DISKS (that will be of no use to me) isn't such a bad deal.
