    Help with kyocera torino S2300

    Hello everyone I'm new to the site and I've been looking for about 2 weeks now with a lot of internet searching leading me back to here. so here comes my question.

    I recently purchased a data cable for my Torino S2300 and my pc does not recognize it honestly I figured it wouldn't. I've gone to Kyocera's site and have had no luck. I've gotten a hold of Bit-pim but my phone isn't listed there either. the only other program I've heard of is GAGIN and I can't find that anywhere. all I want to do is to easily upload ring-tones and wallpapers and whatever else without having to go to a third party site to upload my stuff there and then download it with my phone. so is there any way I can sync my phone and PC? or im I beating on a brick wall here and got robed out of my money? any help would be great. thanks

    connect the phone to your computer via bluetooth. that should be the easiest and fastest way without using cables!

    you can buy a bluetooth dongle for less then $2 just make sure it will work with whatever operating system you have.

    Bitpim wouldn't work without the device drivers. You can send an email to Kyoceria and ask them where the drivers are.

    who said it was a smartphone? its a $29 qwerty phone and to think you could get a smartphone for that price is ridiculous!

    Lightbulb Kyocera Torino S2300 does not transfers files via usb data cable

    The only way you can do this is via bluetooth. I recently purchased this phone and troubleshooted it. You would need to enable file sharing or network sharing from connections on any phone then transfer files but the Kyocera Torino doesn't have such feature to be able to do that. The only thing you can do with the usb cable is print a picture from your phone. I was able to set up a modem from the Kyocera Torino S2300 phone with a usb driver software but it doesn't even allow you to tether it because it asks for a username and password. Metro Pcs doesn't provide a username and password nor has one to give. Your best bet is to get a bluetooth dongle on amazon for a couple dollars for your operating system, connect it, enable bluetooth on your phone and transfer files. You might be able to see your internet from the phone on your computer screen, not sure yet because I'm still waiting for mine. But don't listen to all these idiots who say you can transfer data via USB CHARGE DATA SYNC CABLE BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY AND YOU NEED A MEMORY CARD TO DO THAT. Also Kyocera Torino doesn't have a space for a memory card. So quit hitting that wall and realize it cant be done. I'm an IT specialist, my boyfriend does IT work as well and we troubleshooted it. Just people making it out to be a smart phone when its only a qwerty phone. I personally love the phone. Doesn't beat $30.

    Watch the Virgin thread, since they limit stuff the most, those users work the hardest to crack a phone.
