Motorola Phone Tools

By | October 31, 2005

First of all, it was extremely difficult to install.
I finally found this page which helped me figure it out.
The drivers for the phone were incorrect. The correct ones were in a zip called p2k.zip. The Motorola website was horrible. It refused to give any help. This site was more helpful.

The UI for the Phone Tools is just horrible. It is the worst interface I have ever seen. It tries to look like a phone, but doesn’t work. All I want to do is get a new ringtone and get the pictures off.

How hard can that be? And I know what I am doing.

Someone recently suggested this book to me, which I am finding fascinating. I think I will read others on this page.

    I found Mobile PhoneTools a bit weird at first, but got used to it. You don’t have to use the “phone” UI, there’s menu driven everything in there if you click around a bit.

    I was able to import my whole phone book out of Mozilla Thunderbird and import it into the Motorola address book. That was neat. I also really like the ability to edit MP3s and turn them into ringtones from within the program.

    Supposedly, if you install Phonetools on a laptop you can use it and your cellphone to act as a wireless modem. I haven’t bothered installing the software on my laptop to see if it works but it sounds cool.
