    I am trading in my Samsung N400 tomorrow because the phone is locking up and
    dropping calls. I have a service contract with Best Buy to replace the phone
    and was there earlier tonight to ask if these were valid reasons to replace
    it. They said it was. When I got home I called SprintPCS to ask a CSR if
    they knew how I could download my phone book to a file so I could back it up
    and install it on the Sanyo 8100 I'm getting tomorrow. I wanted the 5300 but
    Best Buy doesn't have it anymore saying it was an older phone model. The CSR
    told me that they would have no way to do it but I could go to a Sprint
    Store and ask them if they could do it since they need the phone. This is
    not a problem because there is a SS in the same building as the Best Buy I'm
    going to. My questions are these:

    1) Will they be able to backup my phonebook on the N400 or will I just be
    wasting my time waiting on the line?

    2) If they could do it would they be able to hold that information until I
    get back there after trading in the phone for the new one so they could put
    the information into the new phone?

    3) If they can't put the information into the new phone due to file format
    differences where would I get the cable to do it myself and would they be
    able to either email me the file or pop it on a floppy disk? I've seen
    someone post the URL to a company that sells cables for phone to PDAs, I
    went there and saw they had phone to PC cables too but lost the URL. Could
    someone please report that URL?

    Thanks

    No, they probably won't be able to do it. The phone books are probably in
    different formats.

    You would need two cables, one for each phone model, and a copy of
    SnapSync - http://futuredial.com/products/P_SS.htm , which would run you a
    bunch of money. FutureDial has both cables. Radio Shack might have the
    cables for a lower price.

    Best thing I can recommend is that you just buy the cable for your new
    phone, and get SnapSync, and sync your contacts from Outlook, and plug in
    those manually into the phone that you don't have in Outlook.

    Thanks but I have had problems with Future Dial and my N400 so I won't be
    using it again. I know I saw another site here that sold cables. Anyone know
    what it was?

    Well, my last suggestion said nothing about your N400. It dealt with your
    new phone, which ever model you decide on ...
