Repost from Newbies Phone LX5200 AND BITPIM

Opps!! I may have posted this one to the wrong forum (Newbies). I am reposting to the Mandriva

I just got a LX5200 verizon phone. I am interested in using BITPIM to be able to link to my PC and customize and more easily manage names/addresses,etc

I am running Mandriva 2006 Dec Club edition.

I down loaded the latest BITPIM program rpm ( for Linux.

I ordered and received at USB cable designed for this phone from everydaysource with the drivers for Windows.

I installed the RPM package and it recoginized the phone but no download of information. I was under the impression (and probably wrongly so) that Mandriva would natively (if that is the correct term---newbie ) utilize this cable without special drivers and/or tweeking.

Any help or insight much appreciated.

When I used bitpim on my Mandriva installation, I had to use the usb to serial cable. I don't believe it would work with the native usb cable. I haven't tried bitpim on LE2006. I didn't have to load an drivers for the serial cable to work.
