USB port phone hack


This one is more case mod than real hack – [computerguru365] whacked a female mini-b USB port into his Samsung [thx rsilvawashington] to avoid buying the overpriced Nokia cable(Reminds me of the infamous $65 startac serial cable) I like it, internal cell phone hardware hacks don’t come along very often, and he found a use for one of those useless demo phones.

    It’s neat, but I’d prefer a hack-a-day article on getting a phone working that already has a USB port, but no software to access it by.

    I did this to my nokia 3300, it offers USB support to write to the MM card, but not to transfer anything else to the phone, which is frustrating. Nokia’s pop port is the worst interface ever, the stereo adapter works on and off because the contacts get dirty at the drop of a hat.

    He hacked a port into his Samsung to avoid buying a Nokia cable? Way to piss off Sony Ericsson!
