you to connect the phone. If for any reason this does not connect first
time please restart your PC. If after a restart it still does not
connect with the PC please repeat the first steps.
I have done everything they said and now I am getting a message coming up saying - "Cannot open port and this program is turned to offline mode. Turn to online" Grrrrrr. Ok, so when I look there is no indication anywhere as to how to 'turn to online'. Can't find anything in the menus, or in the Help section. My pc is definately connected - online. Is it really worth all this hassle I ask myself????
