    Hello all!

    I just received my Nokia 9290 Communicator and bought a docking station for use with the
    phone. My phone is running version 5.07 of the OS, and I downloaded PCSuite 2.03. I put
    the serial cable on COM1, but I don't seem to properly "see" my phone. I had an old DSL
    modem on that COM port a while back, and my settings are a little wonky (speed, bits, stop
    bits, flow control, etc.). I'm wondering what serial settings are required for the phone,
    and I can't seem to find it in the user's manual.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! :-)

    Re: Problems connecting my 9290 to my PC.

    Ah...turned out to be a faulty cable. Well...probably not faulty, per se; I tried to use
    my APC UPS serial cable as an "extension cord" -- and my guess is that not all the
    pertinent pins are supported in that cable. ;-)

    APC UPS's have funny wiring, won't work as an extension...

    Heh! Thanks, Alan -- I think I empirically discovered that. ;-)
