    Can a Motorola SKN6311A USB cable be used to connect a V551 to Mobile Phone
    Tools, or do I need a different cable?

    Hmmm... Looks like I clicked "Send" too soon...

    I'm guessing the answer's "no," since the detection process when I start the
    program takes forever.

    If the answer's "yes," do I need a driver for either the cable or for the
    phone?

    Re: V551 cable question

    I dont have a book of Motorola Part numbers handy, but the V551 uses the
    same cable that they have been using since the days of the P280-V60- (some
    of those were serial) and the V400, V300 and V500, v600s and the V551. So if
    it fits it should work.
    Have u installed Motorola USB Handset Driver Program? A better place to find
    support is the Motorola Forum on www.howardforums.com. They have STICKY
    threds that cover all of this for ya.

    That is the part number contained in the Motorola Data Kit for the V551.
    I use Bluetooth with my V551 and MPT, but lots of people use USB. It is a
    pain to get the drivers loaded correctly if you are on Windows XP, because
    Windows wants to load a driver that MPT doesn't like.

    Do not connect the phone until after you have brought up Mobile Phone Tools
    and done a Live Update, skipping the phone detection the first time. If
    you have already let Windows load drivers, you can undo that. BVRP/MPT
    provides a tool for updating the driver. It might also be necessary to
    remove the installed devices.

    On the FAQ page for BVRP
    http://support.bvrp.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=3966
    The driver installation tool listed in 4) will install the usbser.sys
    driver file from Windows 2000 (which does not exhibit the incompatibility)
    for use with Motorola phones on Windows XP.

    http://support.bvrp.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=234 is another helpful
    thread. This one comes in handy if you plug your phone into different USB
    ports on the PC... You should stay with one port.

    http://support.bvrp.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=2510 is a thread about USB
    and the Razr. Same recurring theme, though. The drivers need to be loaded
    "correctly", and some USB modem devices might need to be removed in device
    manager.

    Motorola also mutters some words about this, but I think Drivertool
    eliminates this process.

    Re: V551 cable question

    Well... The cable I mentioned is the one that came bundled with my old
    P280. So it looks like it'll work. Thanks for the info.

    Would Bluetooth be easier to get set up? Or is there no real
    difference?
