How Do I Use My SGH-A227 As A Modem Or Transfer Data Between It And My Computer?

The SGH-A227 uses PC Studio software for connectivity between your phone and a desktop computer. PC Studio is a Windows-based PC program used to easily manage personal data and multimedia files.

    PC Studio contains several applications for managing data on a mobile phone and PC. Not all applications within PC Studio are compatible for use with all handsets.
