    Just saying in case anyone like me didn't notice. When the phone in connected to your PC via USB go to the drive and run the setup. Windows (7 at least, not sure about Vista/XP) will give you a status panel on the phone. Quite nice. :motdroidvert:

    That is how mine works. Definitely not packed of features, but I like the layout and the quick status so I don't have to look at my phone, reminds of of ActiveSync except it looks nice.

    After you plug in your phone you should get a drive letter for it. Int here is the setup.exe that will install the drivers for the additional features/panel.

    Make sure the USB setting is in PC mode.

    I had to do a reboot to get it to do an auto connect.

    But it will show up as a drive.
