3. Memory Card



SD cards are used in many cell phones.

Many cell phones come with removable memory chips, which can be used to expand the available storage on the cell phone, or to transfer files (such as music and pictures) between the cell phone and other devices. Once you identify the kind of expandable memory in use on your phone, an adapter can usually allow you to connect it to a laptop as if it were a USB drive.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Determine what kind of two-gigabyte memory chip your cell phone uses. You can do this by checking the specifications of your cell phone in the manual or on the manufacturer's website, or by removing the card and examining it. As of April 2010, the most common kind of memory card used in cell phones is the SD format, which comes in standard, mini, and micro sizes. Your phone may also use the Memory Stick Pro or Pro Mini format. The format type will be printed on the side of the card.

2. Purchase a USB adapter for the card you are using, which is available from many different vendors. If your card is in a mini or micro format, make sure that the adapter comes with a sleeve for the card of your size; this allows you to insert a mini or micro card into the sleeve, and changes the card into a standard size for use with the adapter.

3. Insert the card into the sleeve, if necessary, then into the adapter. Connect the adapter to a USB port on your laptop. The card will appear on your laptop as if it were a USB drive. When you are finished working with the card on your laptop, you can move it back to your cell phone.

Bluetooth in iphone


You must turn on bluetooth in your cellphone in connection setting first, then turn on also the bluetooth in the other device, if done try to search bluetooth device in your area using cellphone..until it detects the device you want to share files with.
you must enter the same code on each device if required then now you can share files ..

Connect MP3 player to cellphone


Can you be more specific:

Are you trying to play the cellphone through the MP3 player,
or vice versa.

If your goal is simply to transfer jingles and tunes, the best
way to do this is to use a computer. The Motorola phone has
USB and Bluetooth connectivity, see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_RAZR_V3

With the right software, you should be able to transfer
songs and jingles between your PC and the computer.
(Check Motorola for downloads)

The same is true for the MP3 Player.

The only glitch you may find is the compatibility of
the two devices' media file structures.

You may need to download two separate audio file
converters:

Cellphone <==> Windows WAV format
MP3 player <==> Windows WAV format

Finally either (or both) devices may have built-in DRM
(Digital Rights Management) copy protection,
so you may need to download some hacker/ripper
software to recover the original audio.

Google for copy protection by brand name.

Hope this sends you in the right direction.
