Phone used: AT&T Go Phone - Samsung SGH-a177
The phone powers/charges through the USB cable
Get the data cable. The box doesn't come with a CD so you have to go online at Samsung and get the drivers at http://www.samsung.com/us/support/search/supportSearchModelResult.do
The drivers won't load the modem. You have to download the Samsung Studio (used for transferring data and backing up your address book).
After you download and install the 95 MB program and connect to the phone, the drivers will load.
Check your COM port in Control Panel - Modems, and use that in the Phone Dialer action settings.
ALSO, When I disconnect and reconnect the phone, the COM port used by the phone jumps from 4 to 5 and back. So be aware that if you have to cycle power on the box,
check the COM port or you won't get notified. One option around this is to setup two Phone Dialer actions -- one goes to COM4 and another one to COM5 and just put up
with the email on the failed alert.
More details are available in the Phone Dialer (DTMF/SMS) document page.
