I just got a Sanyo SCP-2300 (same as VI-2300) from Bell and I'm having some problems uploading ringtones to the phone.
I am using BitPim and I tried 2 phone types (RL-4920 and SCP-7300). In BitPim, I can see the filesystem, upload/download the phonebook and upload/download calendar events. As far as ringtones goes, I tried uploading 2 midi files downloaded from the internet (28 KB and 1.7 KB). According to BitPim's log, both files seem to upload correctly but I can't find them on the phone!!!
I checked everywhere in the menus and it does not appear anywhere and when I do a "Get Phone Data" in BitPim, both midi files are there so I guess they are really on the phone. Strange thing though, when I check the phone's memory state (Downloads -> Options), it says that the memory is empty (1024 Kb free). Also, I cannot see my .mid files in the filesystem...
Can you help me understand what's happening and if you can tell me where my rigntones could be on the phone, it would be great.
I get the same problem with my SCP-2300 using a cable I got from e-bay and the latest version of BITPIM. The Sony drivers from FutureDial, Sony and the ones that came with the cable seem to be the same. I'm making Bitpim think it's a SCP-7300 phone. I can download the address book, screensaver, calendar and ringtones. But when I try to upload, I get an error with the address book. I tried uploading a screensaver and a ringtone. That worked but I cannot see it in the phone. It may be possible that the SCP-2300 file structure may be different from the other phones and therefore not read it properly.
I downloaded the DataPilot trial, but it does not have the SCP-2300 and won't even continue to run if it does not detect a phone...
Anyone having any luck with the phone, cable and software??
By the way, I'm in Canada using Bell Mobility. I've read disclaimers by FutureDial and DataPilot stating that the software and/or cable may not work with Canadian Phones (SCP-2300 compared to the VI-2300, which I think are the same phone)
What USB drivers are you using. I've got the SCP-2300 through Bell too but I haven't been ale to locate a USB driver that will work through 98SE. I've tried those found on the net that are listed for the VI-2300 but the computer says it isn't right for my phone. I've tried the ones on a CD that came with my USB cable (Insten USB Data Cable) but same results there. Are the drivers different for the SCP-2300 as compared to the VI-2300?
I found that the USB drivers from Sony and FutureDial are the same. They are for W9X, NT and XP under different directories. I have XP and have not tried 98SE. I think the SCP-2300 and VI-2300 are the same phone. SCP may be the Canadian version while the VI is the US version. Probably different firmware.
I did find something while looking around the BITPIM website about the SCP-8100 (Bell Mobility) version. It uses a different firmware version than its Sprint 8100 counterpart. It also supposedly has media upload crippled and the wallpapers/ringtones cannot be assigned to contacts. This seems like the same problem that I'm having with my SCP-2300.
I too have a 2300. I am currently using datapilot software i found on limewire. The zip file i downloaded had an older version of the data pilot software but also included instructions on how to upgrade to the latest one. It works fine. The only thing i've been able to do so far is upload photos. I can't figure out how to upload games or ringtones. There are only buttons to upload midi ringtones and no button to simply transfer a file. Lame-o software. Bitpim is not much better
I tried the same thing. The only think I was able to do was transferring some data into the address book (with BitPim). Handset Manager and Data Pilot didn't even detect the phone That's pretty dissapointing... What did Solo do with the SCP 2300 firmware I wonder...
PS: this is about the SCP-2300 version (Solo Mobile)

I'm assuming that Solo Modified the firmware. I'm wondering if they disabled the Internet use through the cable. Technically from what I've read u should be able to access and set up an internet connecting though the phone. Has anybody done that?
So I visisted BitPim's website and read that the issues we are experiencing are due to the Sanyo phones, not the BitPim or the qcp ring tones we are trying to upload.
From BitPim's help site, it says only images and midi ring tones can be loaded via BitPim and the cable.
So I just decided to make my qcp ringtones with the PureVoice utilities then use the sprintusers.com webform to text them to my phone. I guess I'll have to pay for each ringtone after all even when I have a PC SYNC cable
