Kyocera Phone Desktop software

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Mike Gurkin, Oct 25, 2003.

    Hi,

    I had to reload my PC and can't find the CD containing Kyocera Phone Desktop
    software that came with the data connectivity kit. I have the cable, but
    not the CD, so now cannot download numbers and such to my 2325.

    I've looked at Kyocera and can only find an Updater download, which won't
    work unless you have the original software installed.

    My local Verizon says I need to buy the kit again, no suprise there.

    Anyone know if this software can be found for download for replacement
    purposes?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    How about good old fashioned Palm Desktop? From www.palm.com

    The 2325 isn't a Palm based phone.

    I actually have the same question - I think I lost my Kyo Desktop cd.

    But on the other hand, I had a serial cable, and my new laptop has no serial
    ports, so it's either "spend $120-$140 for a port replicator" or "spend $50-
    $80 for a USB cable" :) so I will probably end up buying one anyhow. (A new
    cable, that is, with a new CD.)

    I would actually e-mail Kyocera off their website and ask them -- they're
    generally quite good about returning customer e-mails quickly.

    A serial-USB adapter is about $30.

    Or $20-30 for a generic USB-serial adaptor that you can also use for other
    serial devices.

    Radio Shack will rip you off for about $35, but I've seen them on the
    web for $25-$30. Radio Shack's part number is 26-183.

    Do you have a laptop with PCMCIA card slots? If so, they have dual USB cards
    about 36 bucks, or if a desktop PC, dual USB ports (even if your desktop has
    serial ports) about $21.95.

    Bookmarked. Should have figured Belkin would have it! Thank you.

    Now I just have to figure out where I put the serial cable, and I'm golden
    :p

    That would just give him more of the same problem he already has, not solve
    anything.

    Then look at the PCMCIA cards that provide serial ports:
    http://www.serial-cards.co.uk/brainboxes-pcmcia-serial-cards.htm

    Or these that provide up to 4 serial ports:
    http://www.adontec.com/pcmcia_e.htm

    (and several dozen others)

    Actually, a solution has been proposed. My wife's pooter has serial ports.

    At such time as I need to sync my contacts on the road, I'll consider the
    suggestions people have made here (thanks to all that made them).
