Question about Cell Phones

Cannot find a driver to connect my Samsung SCH u550 cell phone to my computer.

I bought a usb cable that says it works with my new Samsung SCH u550 to connect to my computer but on the cd that came with it, there is no driver listed for that particular model. Can't find any place to download one. Is there another model of phone that the driver works for this one too? I just want to put music on my cell phone but this is becoming a major project.

Thanks for any help you can give!

    Likewise- I have a Samsung SCH-u550 and a compatible cable, but the usb driver software I've used for other CDMA phones in the past isn't compatible. Can anyone recommend a driver? Thanks.

    Same problem. The Driver that I downloaded from the Samsung site wouldn't install correctly in Windows Vista (even though Vista is listed as compatible). Please advise where I can obtain a driver for the Samsung SCH-u550.

I had the same problem connecting with bluetooth. Then upon a suggestion I found on another discussion board, I changed my port settings to 115200 bits per second, and it now connects just fine using Bitpim. Port settings are found this way: Computer>View System Information>Hardware>Device Manager>Ports. Then right-click the port through which you are connecting, and select Properties>Port Settings. There you can change the connection rate to 115k. Good luck.

I have a samsung 450 and bought a usb data cable so that I can download my pics from my phone to my computer. Could you tell me how to do this?

Connect the phone to the PC with the USB cable and set the phone to Mass Storage Device in settings->phone->USB. Then a new FAT4 Drive will appear in My Computer. Use this drive as you would any other drive.

How to replace a Samsung SCH-U550 cell phone battery

The Samsung SCH-U550 is an older-style flip phone that doesn't see much use today. If you still have an SCH-U550 and you need to replace its battery, here's how.

First it's a good idea to turn the phone off. (You don't have to, but there's less chance of data being corrupted if you do.) Hold down the End button for a couple of seconds until you see the phone start to power down, then the screen will go black.

Once the phone is off, turn it over so you're looking at the back side. Most of the back cover, from the bottom about 2/3 of the way up toward the top, is one piece. To remove the cover, push down on it with your thumb and slide it downward. If you press on it closer to the top it will be easier to slide, but you may have to push firmly.

With the cover off, you should be staring at the battery. It's black and rectangular, and it probably says "Samsung" on it. Remove the battery by sliding your thumb into the groove on the bottom side and lifting it up.

When installing the new battery, slide it in from the bottom up -- towards the three gold pins sticking out of the phone. Those pins should line up with the three gold contacts on the battery itself. The battery will also probably have an arrow on it, in the direction that you should slide it.

With the new battery in, reattach the rear cover. There are three tabs sticking out of the top of the cover that will line up with three notches in the back side of the phone. Insert the tabs about halfway into the notches, then push the cover down (toward the phone) and slide the tabs the rest of the way in to snap the cover into place.

Now just turn your phone on to verify that the new battery works. If your phone doesn't turn on, remove the battery and reinstall it, being certain that the contacts and pins are touching and that everything fits into place.

I have 2 SCH-U550 phones, both on my Verizon plan.. One has a fried display, the other is fine. The "Good" phone has just had its number/account upgraded into a new phone (not yet activated) ,...

Hi, unfortunately the SCH-U550 with Verizon service doesn't use a SIM card... everything is internal to the phone. You should be able to take the two phones to a Verizon store and have an associate swap the numbers for you, however. I've had this done before and it was free.
Hope that helps!
