How to save phonebook of Samsung SCH-B559 in Desktop Computer

Buy the Samsung OEM data cable along with the ActiveSync install CD. These are purchased together as a set from a reputable cell phone dealer . Enable your computer to access transfer data from your computer to your Samsung BlackJack cell phone by installing the ActiveSync CD. Before installing ActiveSync make sure all other programs are closed.
  • Insert the OEM data cable to your Samsung BlackJack cell phone.Plug in the other end of the OEM data cable to your computer using the USB port.

  • Watch as transfer begins automatically with the ActiveSync program. This will transfer your stored phone numbers from your computer to your Samsung BlackJack cell phone.

    End the ActiveSync program by closing the window. Open the contact information in your Samsung BlackJack phone to make sure all information was transferred.

    Since I upgraded 700w and active sync the synchronizing is not happening between phone and computer

    you may have to delete activesync, reinstall, then connect your phone. be sure and save the old activesync folder, contacts, pics, etc. hope this gets you going.

    How i can sync my Ipaq h3955 with my pc win xp

    In order to sync your iPAQ with Windows XP or earlier, you will need to download and install Windows Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 from:

    You can use ActiveSync 4.5 only with phones that run Windows Mobile 2003 or later versions. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 phones. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync information to any of these phones, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
    You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.

    Download and install ActiveSync:
    1. Click the download link on this page, and then click Continue.
    2. Select whether you want to register for the Windows Mobile newsletter, and then click Continue.
    3. Click Download files below, and then click Download (next to the Setup.msi file).
    4. In the File Download dialog box, click Run.
    5. Follow the instructions in the Installation Wizard to install ActiveSync.

    Note: You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use ActiveSync to synchronize information.

    automatically starts when you connect your phone to the PC. The
    wizard will guide you to create a synchronization
    3.Select the information types to synchronize between your phone and
    If you will synchronize your phone with both your computer and
    Exchange Server, do the following:
    • For the Contacts, Calendar, E-mail, and Tasks items, choose whether
    to synchronize them with the computer or with the Exchange
    Server. These items cannot be synchronized to both.
    • Select the check boxes of the other information types if you want
    to synchronize them with your computer.
    4.Click Next.
    5. Click Finish.
    When you finish the wizard, Active Sync synchronizes your phone
    automatically. Once synchronization completes, you can disconnect your
    phone from your PC.

    After that if you setup the program correctly every time you will connect your phone with computer will be automatic synchronized

    How to erase all contacts at once

    Honestly... your best bet would be to perform a hard reset... then sync with the computer again...  To performa hard reset, hold the power button down and press the reset button under the battery door,... The phone will ask you if you want to 'Erase All Data?'... press UP on the navigation key or press the volume up key...

    When it is done waking up and you have calibrated the screen and such, you can use activesync again to restore your old data.

    Hi, my HD is connected to the computer via USB (visible in MY COMPUTER) but is never connected to WINDOWS MOBILE DEVICE CENTER. i NEED TO SYNC MY CONTACTS, CAN I COPY OR MOVE FILES FROM OUTLOOK TO A...

    No, it's very likely a software configuration option on your phone.

    Goto: "Start | Settings | Connections | USB to PC" and clear the checkbox "Enable faster data synchronization". Don't forget to restart your phone afterwards.

    Having that option "enabled" makes for faster (Explorer-like) file-transfers, but disables "ActiveSync", making the device a normal "USB storage device" without the sync extra features. Disabling the options re-enables the "ActiveSync".

    Contacts disappeared from storage card when phone linked to new PC

    When you make a new relationship - connection with a PC you should always backup the whole mailbox first.(messages,contacts,calendar...)Because the ActiveSync erases the "old" contacts.So,can u go back to the "old" PC (where the contacts are OK) and try to synchronize your contacts? Make a new connection with Act.Sync.If u want to update or add contacts,its better to do it via your mail client(MS Outlook for example) first and then synchronize your PDA.Good Luck.
