    USB phone control anyone? (wm5/wm6)

    I have a TMO Dash, recently upgraded to wm6,

    It seems like the only way to dial out/ have computer control of the phone is over bluetooth (phoco &rrmobile) , however i would rather just use a USB connection mainly because

    USB charges the phone, BT runs down the battery more quickly

    also faster file transfer between carpc and phone
    also also USB is pretty much definite, while BT can be iffy

    yeah BT is kinda cool because it is wireless, but other than that i dont see any other advantages it has over USB and afterall, how hard is it to plug in a single cable when you get in the car..

    I thought this would be a more simple way to do things however it seems like all these programs are bluetooth centric-

    i suppose i could just run the BT and the USB but that is stupid , anyone know of a better way to do things?

    What phone do you have?

    Because I have a treo 700WX and I thought there wasnt any phoco/rrmobile plugins that worked w/ WM5/6

    If you want to control your phone through your computer try Pocket Controller by SOTI. I haven't used the newest version, but the older version worked well for me.
    I think it works with your phone.
    Yeah google!
