    Samsung SGH-T528G & Samsung PC studio

    I purchased the T528G from ST over a week ago, its a decent phone with almost no support from Samsung. There is only 22 Samsung apps that you can download and the Samsung PC studio software will not work with my T528G. With the PC studio program you should be able to tether your phone which was a big reason I bought this phone. I've contacted Samsung with the issue but they have given me no response yet. For some reason when I plug the phone into my computer, the PC Studio just won't recognize the phone. Is anyone else having problems with this phone?

    most phones sold by straight talk/net10/tracphone are porpusely crippled so that when you hook them up to a pc it will just charge the battery. tethering is against straight talks terms of service .if caught your phone could be shut off.

    I figured it out. You are correct, their support is useless. One incompetent moron after another. Search for a USB T528G driver for your OS. Use Bitpim to transfer outlook contacts. Put it in mass storage mode so it's seen as an external disk drive to transfer (copy) music and picture files. I tried three versions of PC Studio & two OS/s (Win 7-64 & XP). Don’t waste your time with PC studio. It won't recognize the phone. Also, you may have to install the driver while running it as Administrator and in a compatibility mode such as Vista SP 2 for Win 7-64 and you'll need to install an SD card so it can be seen as a mass storage device in mass storage mode.

    528G drivers

    I have looked everywhere, where do you find drivers?....I have pics on my Samsung behold, the last ones of my mother that passed and need my text messages. I retrieved everything off my behold and somehow imported my contacts.

    Have you tried New PC Studio? I thought there was no support for my T401G, and there isn't with PC Studio. Evidently Samsung's "New PC Studio" is needed for many recent phones. It doesn't give full functionality that some other phones have, but I can transfer pictures and contacts and such.
