    Does anyone know what the PC Sync Menu is used for?

    To go to it click on Menu, Tools/Extra, PC Sync, there are a couple of
    different choices with in the menu. I've tried clicking on all of them
    with and without a data cable.

    I have referenced the downloadable owners manual and can not find
    anything at all about it.

    thanks

    that's when you are syncing between the phone and your computer (like
    uploading ringers using snap media or something)

    So you have to have Snap Media (or simialar software) in order to use
    these features on the phone?

    Has anyone else used this menu usning Snap Media (or other software)
    sucessfully?

    I've used SnapMedia (and SnapSync for syncing contacts with MS Outlook)
    on the Sanyo 4900 for this just fine. But they haven't released
    SnapMedia for the 5500 unfortunately. Keep an eye on ...

    and hope they get around to it.

    Re: Sanyo 5500 Menu Question

    BTW, I tried

    http://www.sprintusers.com/focus/

    which works fairly well. Got the ringer I wanted onto my phone. But
    pictures are a bit weird -- they end up in the phone under "Screen
    Savers". Anyone know of a way to get them into another location, like
    under "My Pictures"?

    I've read of some people downloading pictures and video from the phone
    to a computer in SprintUsers.com. I think that they where using
    SnapMedia, i'm still trying to get a clear answer on that.

    That's what i'm interested in.

    Well, as I said in a previous message in this thread, SnapMedia does NOT
    work with the Sanyo 5500.

    I just went to Sanyo's site, clicked on the phone model, then accessories
    and came up with this page - http://tinyurl.com/ytszk , which deals
    specifically with SnapSync, so I'm guessing that SnapMedia will be available
    for the 5500 shortly.

    Yes, SnapSync has been available for the 5500 since about four days
    after the phone's release. But SnapMedia doesn't even show a "coming
    soon" icon for that phone ...

    Re: Sanyo 5500 Menu Question

    I've read of somepeople being able to use SnapMedia on it using the
    8100 dll file in snapmedia and editing the ini file for the 5500.
    Don't know if it'll work or not, but may be worth a try for anybody
    that has SnapMedia with the 8100's dll in it.

    When it asked, I told SnapMedia I had the 8100, but it didn't work for
    me. Don't know why it works for some and not others. Anyway, even it
    "worked" (meaning connected), it wouldn't be ideal since the picture
    cropping that SnapMedia does is based on the resolution of the phone in
    question, and the 8100's display resolution is quite different.

    I sent FutureDial an email today asking about SnapMedia for the 5500.
    The reply was:

    SnapMedia support is being finalized now.
    No word on a release date.

    Maybe they'll have a new release out soon that that fully supports it.
    Is the latest version of SnapMedia 1.5 or 1.6?

    The CD they sent me last week (to replace my 1.0 CD with no serial
    number that I sent them) says 1.6.

    (Hope I don't have to go through the CD-sending routine again when they
    come out with 1.7 or whatever.)
