Like the phone, but unable to use Bluetooth or USB transfer to Windows 7
on December 5, 2011
I use this phone mostly for phone calls. I did not get a data plan, so no texting, web surfing, etc. Compared to my last phone, I have very few dropped calls or inability to make calls (network not available). The interface is fairly easy to navigate and locate different settings. Occasionally I take photos with the phone and the quality is decent.
My big complaint is transferring files (photos) from the phone to a PC or other device. I never got Bluetooth to work (with or without PC Suite). It pairs with a laptop, iTouch, and iPad, but says "Connection failed" or "not supported" when you try to Send files. The At&t rep thought the Bluetooth might be only for a headset, but the manual clearly states that you can Send files.
Mixed results using the USB cable included with the phone. First of all you need to obtain PC Suite specifically for the Breeze III from the pantechusa.com web site [...]. Apparently PC Suite doesn't work with Windows 7 (or maybe 64-bit Windows 7?). I can see my files in the File Manager, but when I try to transfer to my PC, I get an error and it won't copy the files. Seems to work fine on Windows XP, but that's our "old" machine in the house. If it stops working, I won't have any way to transfer files from the phone, unless I purchase a data plan.
