    After toting two phones around for a week I've found that bitpim will move a
    phonebook from a 4900 to a 7300.

    Explanation: I've had a 4900 for over a year now and built up a lot of phone
    numbers in its internal phonebook ----- and using either Data Pilot (to get
    at OE into the 4900) or SnapSyn I've managed the 4900's phone entries quite
    successfully. Last week I got the 7300 to try and found that it's a pretty
    neat phone in real short order. The only problem was that neither Data Pilot
    or SnapSync would work with the 7300; and after writing to both companies I
    learned it'd be a while (weeks) before they got their products 7300
    compliant.

    The problem was solved with the bitpim program, which I was able to use the
    standard 4900 setting to DL my numbers off the 4900 then use Bitpim's "5500"
    setting to UL the phonebook to the 7300 ---- which worked great --- no
    problems with the caller ID stuff or other entries.

    Bitpim is free and it was .7 test 6 build that worked for the transplant
    between the two phones. The program is located here....

    http://bitpim.sourceforge.net/

    This is one users experience ---- but might be worth a try if you've got a
    7300 that needs to be populated.

    Hey Tom, I finally decided to d/l the program, (.7 beta), and was wondering
    how long it takes for the phone book to show up. Been over 30 minutes now
    and nothing. Nothing on the info already plugged into the calendar.

    Hmmm, I'd say seconds ---- less than 5 probably, for both the 4900 and the
    7300. There was a status bar that showed the progress. From reading around
    it looks like the prog prefers Sanyo's ---- is that what you're hooking up?

    I got the prog (.7 build 6) from ...

    http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/b...2.exe?download

    I don't suggest the Chapel Hill site as it's slow as dog pooh.

    Did you get the ebay "tips" I sent the other day? Never sure how the yahoo
    mail works, or not. <grin>

    5300 and it's not working ... Uninstalled it, reinstalled it ... still
    nothing. Have tried the Auto detect setting and Com 5 ... nothin'!.

    Yea, Phoenix is a greyhound ...

    Also, one more thing with this beta. Can't close it out, save to go into
    Task Manager and end process ...

    Hmmm, the 5300 is listed too. I used the "auto detect" and off it went. I'm
    using XP home, FWIW.

    More strangeness ---- didn't / don't have that issue either. Guess, for
    once, I lucked out. I'll take it though, as the phonebook was needed on the
    7300, badly.

    Sorry to waste ur time with it.....

    Suppose you saw this......

    Yea, I did. Considering the amount of computers that are online 24/7, it's
    not as innocent as Verizon makes it out to be.
