    Samsung U470 "Juke" (Verizon SP) and BitPim

    I was just curious, has anybody found a way to get bitpim to recognize a U470 (Verizon SP). I see that the latest bitpim release has added support to the U470, but it does not allow me to connect.

    Does this have something to do with Verizon "locking up" their version of the U470? Is there some driver that needs to be downloaded?

    Thanks in advance

    Uhhh, not for me. I'm using the USB cable and get the error below. (that's just part of it)
    Please help.

    yeah so by hidden menu do you mean, pressing right then zero and then the last 4 digits of the handset telephone number? or is that only on pre-commercial handsets that are test enabled?

    and if i am totally off someone want to share their great wisdom as to how to i get to this hidden menu you speak of so i can change the mtp.

    thanks

    Here's how to get there...

    1. Go to the menu
    2. Go to "Settings and Tools"
    3. When inside settings and tools press the '#' key
    4. It will ask you for a "User Lock" password. This is all zeros
    5. Scroll down to "MTP Setting" (number 3) and change it to "MSM"
    6. Viola! BitPim should work on the Juke now (for you verizon users anyway)

    Be sure to change that setting back if you ever want to sync music, as the phone dosen't allow you to add music under the MSM setting

    cheers

    Auto detect should work, but my question is have you installed the drivers for the Juke, yet?

    if not, do it!

    then reply back here.

    U470 Drivers

    If there are additional drivers required other that the ones that are installed when you use WMP or Verizons cheesy musicmanager to manage music, then I havent. I cant locate any additional drivers for the SCH-U470 on the Samsung site. Is there somewhere else I can find them?

    One thing you might try is installing samsung PCstudio. It contains drivers for all their phones. you may never use the program, but at least you've got the drivers

    Getting Bitpim to recognize the Juke

    That was the ticket.
    After I installed PC Studio, Bitpim recogized the Juke right away after i changed the MTP settings in the system info menu.

    Thank you very much. It's very helpful.
    If your computer can't open COMPORT, please follow Kinney 4's instruction. It works.

    Thanks again, Kinney 4
