How To Sync Your Samsung Blackjack Phone To Your Laptop or PC via Wireless Bluetooth
Your Samsung Blackjack Cell Phone has Bluetooth…USE IT!† How?
First, you can sync your phone’s contacts, schedule, tasks, etc using the included ActiveSync software.† When ActiveSync detects a connection it will automatically compare data on the phone to the computer and start the sync process.† Easy as that.
What else can you do?† You can transfer files back and forth between the Blackjack phone and your laptop or desktop PC wirelessly as well.† Using the “MASS STORAGE DEVICE” mode for “Connection” type in the SETTINGS MENU, you’ll be able to utilize your Blackjack basically as a portable drive.† The neat part is that you can access the MicroSD card in your Blackjack phone as well.
What I have done is put a bunch of reference files on my MicroSD card, such as excel files with various telephone lists that I don’t necessarily want to keep in my “Contacts” on the phone; or PDF files for different schedules for school, church, kidde soccer, etc so that I can quickly look at appropriate topical information at a glance using the PixelViewer application.
Another thing that I’ve done is create folders for various audio files that I’ve moved onto the phone via the wireless bluetooth connection.† So I have a couple of audiobooks, teleseminars, and music albums on my phone to play back at any time.
And now that I’ve started to really utilize video on the phone (the resolution is great!), I am going to start to convert video files to the 3GP mobile video compressed format so that I can watch tv shows and movies on my phone whenever I have “dead time” like on my commute into the city the past 2 days or when I was waiting for the next scheduled conference session to start…
Your phone has bluetooth.† Does your PC or laptop have bluetooth?† If not, the EASIEST and cheapest way to add bluetooth capability to your computer is to get a USB Bluetooth Adapter and just stick it into any available USB†port.† It will set you back less than $20 — any usually you can find them for less than $10, many times even free after rebate.† They are TINY†so you can just stick it into a pocket in your laptop case if you travel a lot.† And you won’t have to carry that bulky USB conncetion cable!
What you’ll find after getting a Bluetooth “Dongle” Adapter is that you’ll sync your phone MUCH more often — which only means you’ll really utilize the Blackjack smart phone to the max.
