    Sync Center won't sync to Windows Mobile PDA/cell phone

    I have a Cingular 8125 cell phone, PDA that used to sync fine under Windows
    XP and ActiveSync. Now, on Vista, when I open the Sync Center, it doesn't
    detect the phone, even though the phone detects the laptop.

    Can anyone help?

    Hello Bruce,

    Thank you for using newsgroup!

    Based on my knowledge, you may use Windows Mobile Device Center to set up
    new partnerships, synchronize content and manage music, pictures and video
    with Windows Mobile powered devices (Windows Mobile 2003 or later). The
    Windows Mobile Device Center is only supported on Windows Vista. For more
    information about usage and driver, please refer to he following links:

    If you have any questions, I suggest you post your question on the
    Microsoft public newsgroups (Microsoft.public.mobility) where other users
    may have already experienced this issue. You can find this newsgroup by

    You need Windows Mobile Device Center, which replaces Active
    Sync.
