    I wish you could see SMS as threads just like on the droid, its incredibly annoying saving a convo.

    ...unless I'm not seeing an option?

    question, the only thing I've d/l'd other than apps from the android mkt was the gallery for 2.1. I just d/l'd zip viewer to open the MPP.zip. it is only giving me options to open it to my SD card. I know we can't run apps from our SD cards unless the phone is rooted. I'm not rooted. what the hell do I do now? Yes, yes, I know I'm a newbie. can someone walk me through what I'm supposed to do?

    Just for the facts :) and that we are clear on the terminolgy so others aren't confused , Motorola Media Link Software (made by Nero) Motorola Media Link - Motorola USA is a PC based solution (131mb Download) used via USB cable connection.

    Motorola Phone Portal (Phone Tools) that we are discussing here in this thread is a different animal, it is a phone based app that uses WiFi.

    Are you running Windows on your PC? Your best bet would be to download the zip file to your desktop, unzip it on your PC and take the unzipped APK file and copy it to your SD card on the Droid. Then use a file manager like Astro to install it. Seems like just about everyone reporting problems with installing this is trying to unzip it on the Droid. No need to do that. You know how to move a file to your SD card, right? Download Astro from the market in order to then view all the files on your SD card, double tap it when you find it through Astro and you'll have the option to install.

    If what I said doesn't seem to make sense to you, post back with exactly what you need clarified and we'll take it from there :)

    Me too! The app says it works using USB or WiFi, but it will only proceed if WiFi is connected.

    Has anybody been successful with USB?

    I could not get IE 8 to access the phone. When I switched to Chrome it worked fine. Pretty cool app.

    I just downloaded and tried out this app. It's pretty sweet. I like that you can open up bookmarks from your phone through your computer, sort of like being able to carry your bookmarks with you. Being able to change settings such as wallpapers and ring tones is nice too. The only thing that I don't get is why do you really need this app? I guess the best thing would be to transfer your pictures to your computer but there is no way to sync them all at once, only one at a time.

    I'm not knocking this app, just giving my opinion. I plan on playing around with it a little more to see what I can all do.

    Thanks for the heads-up!!

    I figured it out Marc. Thanks for your reply. I was thinking that since the file was saved to the SD card that it would try to "run" from the SD card. I d/l'd astro and it installed it and it runs perfectly. Thanks again.
