Im having problems connecting to the active sync using a USB connections the USB connection is open on my mobile device but will only connect sometimes and it takes a very long time for it too sync is this normal and what am i doing wrong on getting connected
Make sure you've loaded the software the phone came with onto the host pc (fully loaded it, and go through the "configuration" routine it asks you to complete after installing the activesync software). That should fix your problem. Incidentally tho, i've connected my phone via usb cable to pc's that did NOT have the active sync software installed, and those pc's still recognized the phone as a removable drive (without the syncing capability). You can still install applications and syncronize files manually so long as the host pc sees it as a removable drive tho (although it takes a tad bit more technical knowledge, such as file paths and the like)
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You have to enable the feature USB mode: Mass Storage on most phones to get a connection that is similar to a flash drive. If your phone's operating system is Windows Mobile 6.1,6.5.x or Windows Phone 7 you need a software called Mobile Device Center to make an Active Sync connection. If your phone is an Android powered one, you should use Android SDK to connect it to your PC.
1. install the Samsung Omnia modem driver on your Windows PC - can be found @http://www.samsungmobile.com/promotion/omnia/fr/sub02_xp.jsp 2. if you have installed Active Sync on your Windows PC then make sure that before you connect your mobile device to PC you disable "Allow USB connections" from the Active SyncOption menu 3. after you connect Samsung Omnia to PC, on your mobile device go to START->PROGRAMS->INTERNET SHARING and select the connection type (bluetooth or USB - most commonly used would be USB); tap "Connect". Your Samsung Omnia will connect to the mobile network if you have set up a profile for GPRS/HSDPA according to your billing plan provided by the network operator.

I have an LG 970 with precisely this stupid problem. In many, many ways, this phone is a complete nuisance. This particular stupidity is a phone setup issue, it cannot be a Mass storage Device and a Data Service at the same time.
Phone, Menu, 9 Settings, 4 Connectivity, 3 USB connection, ...
- select "Mass storage" if you want to access images, sounds etc using Windows Explorer, just like any other USB stick
- select "Data service" if you want to use the LG Mobile Sync application
I went through the same trouble. After a small investigation I've found that the USB driver wasn't install. I just ran the setup and it worked imediatly C:\Program Files\LGE GSM PC Sync\USB Setup\LGUSBModemDriver_ML_WHQL_Ver_4.6.exe
This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below:
1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again.
2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again.
3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case:
a) unplug the USB cradle
b) uninstall active sync
c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab.
Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall.
d) restart the laptop
e) Install active sync
f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket.
g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.
