    Does anyone know where I can get a driver for my new Samsung Rant? I am using Windows Vista.

    The owner's manual says a driver is not needed on one page and tells me where to download it ( from Samsung) on another. The page they provide goes to the driver for another model phone. Figures.

    I contacted Samsung and they say they have no driver and it should be supplied by Sprint.

    Sprint says they don't have a driver and that I should contact Samsung.

    Apparently they never talk to each other.

    Re: Samsung Rant driver

    Second question...
    Does anyone know of a good (cheap) place to get ear buds/headphones that would fit a Samsung Rant?

    Thanks.

    Can't help you as far as the driver goes, but as for the headphones all you need is an adapter and you can use any standard pair of headphones.

    Just google "2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter"

    I'd post a link to one, but:

    Thanks. Hadn't thought of the adapter. Duh.

    Keeping newbies from posting links is a fairly common tactic to keep out the adbots and trolls. It's an unfortunate necessity.

    I disagree...but it's not important, and not on topic :O

    I did some looking around and the Rant should be plug-n-play with vista. Have you tried just plugging it in?

    Yes. All I get is a window where it is searching for the driver. I'm going to do some research with Microsoft to see what they have since Samsung and Sprint have been about as helpful as the folks at the DMV.

    yo'. to connect the rant to a pc you have to go to the following on your samsung rant home>tools>mass storage>connect to PC. it took one or two tries for my phone to connect. connect usb cable then select 'connect to PC' - should work fine without needing drivers. this has probably already been posted but i'm too lazy to check. cheers.

    as for the headphones. You can find stereo bluetooth headphones on amazon for under 50 bucks, usually around 40. My suggestion, based on what I've heard from my friends would be the Motorola S9. they're black and red (though they make Hi def ones that are all black for about 100 bucks). Super light, comfortable, and good sound quality.

    Re: Samsung Rant driver

    Im having the same problem with windows xp. I have tried the home>tools>mass storage>connect to PC trick but my PC keeps asking for the driver location.
    the website in the manual (samsungwirelessdotcom/usbdownload) dosnt exist.
    I cant find any USB drivers on the samsung site and have been waiting 15 minutes for sprint chat support to answer.

    anyone know where I can find the USB driver for win xp?
