    Where I live, high speed Internet ain't available. When I hook phone up to computer it says need Internet connection to proceed. I tried with USB debugging on and off, I get the same results. Is there any way I can get it to work without having Internet?

    What are you wanting to sync? Are you wanting to sync over wifi or stick with USB syncing?

    Is this the first time you've tried to connect the device to the computer? Because, if so, it's likely that it wants you to download the drivers for the phone, which you need to be able to do anything...

    The phone should install the drivers on the first connection. Since this is in the S4 section, installing Samsung Kies on the PC will do the same.

    Good call. Couldn't remember how that worked. I've always had mine connected to the internet when I plugged the phone in.

    Can't figure out what would want a connection other than updated drivers though...

    When you say you don't have "high speed" Internet does that mean you don't have any Internet or a way to get a network in house? It is possible to create a local network without Internet. If you have any Internet at all you have quite a few other WiFi options that would allow you to do file transfers locally. No cloud required.

    The only Internet offered here is dail-up. And my PC is running Windows XP. When I hook the phone up to PC and go to Computer, in tha drives on it, it's not showing anything at all. I had to take my SD card out of phone to place music on it. Is there any way to install drivers manually. Do I have to have drivers on PC to use Odin?

    Here is a link to the Samsung USB Windows drivers. Technical Documentation SAMSUNG Developers But they may not work as some people can't get a connection to the computer due to issue with the computer.Hope these work.

    As far as manually installing the driver: you could side load the driver onto your sd card from another pc and then install it onto your pc that way. (If you have an external card reader or one built into your pc)
    Yes, you need the driver in order to use Odin.
