    I picked up a i730, and now I need to replace all my accessories.
    Yippie.

    Any advantage of a USB cable over a serial cable, or the other way
    around?

    Traditionally I've preferred serial, since I can connect to my Palm and
    other devices more easily, but the USB cable is cheaper, so I'm debating
    giving it a shot.

    I use the phone as a modem, and connect using CompanionPro, and I'll
    probably upload a wallpaper or three, but not much else.

    Go with USB. Serial uses a different kind of transmission medium and is
    somewhat slower than USB, especially when you are HotSyncing your Palm
    Handheld. It's actually best to sync the i730 with a USB Cable instead.

    Can you still use the i730 as a modem the same with a USB cable?

    You *should* I don't see any reason why--but the i730 can double as a
    Modem whether Serial or USB.
