    ======================
    Step by Step Guide for using MPT 2.x with the Future Dial USB cable
    ======================

    1. Go to www.futuredial.com and get the USB Drivers for the the Cable.
    2. After installing the dr plug in the USB cable
    3. Go to Device manager and find the PORT where the Prolific USB Serial Adapter is on
    ----------------
    4. Now open up MPT (It will fail to initialize)
    5. Go to Setup and Communications options
    6. Change modems, and have it detect a new modem.
    7. Cancel, and wait a minute or 2.
    8. It will now ask you which COM port your phone is on, so select the COM port from part 3 above.
    9. Check the box telling it not to detect and that you want to select your own.
    10. Choose the V810.
    11. Close MPT.
    ------------------------
    12. Download the CTX file I created earlier in this FAQ topic.
    13. Go to C:\Documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\BVRP Software\Mobile Phone Tools in Explorer
    14. Replace the CTX (I think it will be FAX011.CTX) with the CTX file from the ZIP from this forum
    -------------------------
    15. Plug Phone into USB cable
    16. Run MPT tools
    ---------------------
    17. Synch Away! It should be working now after a few minutes.

    Note that it helps to reboot the phone (power off then on) right before Step 15 sometimes.

    you Can go to the MPT View - Modem Exchange to see the Data being passed on the COM port. If you see alot of OK's you are set. If you see it waiting, then follwo the steps here and try again.

    (This guide is done from Memory, and I've done it on a few different PCs, so I think It's correct. If it's wrong please PM me, and I'll update it)
