    I am looking into connecting my Ericsson T68 to my PC.

    After looking at the website, it is all confusing.

    What cable and software download do I need to synchronise my contacts with Outlook?

    If anyone has done this please let me know.

    I did this with my T68 via the Ericsson software & bluetooth - I have a bluetooth transceiver on my MSI motherboard.
    This is basically a 2.4 GHz RF connection, similar to IEEE802.11b
    (aka "Wi-Fi") but slower.
    You can enable bluetooth on the T68 via the connections icon.
    However, you have to have something else with bluetooth to use this (PC, PDA, bletooth USB dongle etc.).

    You can do it all with Ericsson's xtndconnect software, which should have come with your phone. You can use a mobile action data cable (serial or USB) from Scan.co.uk, much cheaper than any bluetooth options unless you already have bluetooth devices.

    The MA-620 - (Mobile Action 620 - USB version) is cheaper at M99 - hideous looking site, but cheapest I've found the MA620 (£31.95 delivered).
