What Are USB Settings And How Do I Use Them On My Samsung Reality™ (SCH-u370) Phone?

USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a type of plug-in connection that is used to connect devices, including some handsets, to desktop or laptop PC's. In a handset, USB is useful for quickly transferring files to and from phones, or for synchronizing information with a PC application. The SCH-U370 (Reality) handset has the capability to transfer files directly between a PC and a memory card (residing within the handset) with a compatible USB data cable using the mass storage feature or media sync with Windows Media Player. The minimum size limit for the microSD memory card is 32MB. This phone does support the use of a microSDHC 16GB capacity memory card.

    The plug-in microSD memory card and its contents can be easily damaged by scratches or bending. Use caution when inserting or removing the card and keep all memory cards out of reach of children.
