You just plug it in and it works, right..

No, not really, not until you have done this:

And then this to update the phone:

Hopefully after all that, the screen brightness setting doesn't keep resetting itself to lowest..

    I bet the "plug n play"-ness is even better when you try to make it work in Linux or even BSD.

    I've got as far as getting the Windows software to install and run, it just can't see the phone yet..

    The bigger question is why are you using Windows PDA

    Because it has a physical keyboard. :-)

    With a number row !

    With buttons big enough to easily press, that are backlit.

    After 14 hours I got as far as at least getting Windows 10 to see the phone.

    Quite how I managed that, I'm not sure, it seemed to work after I did a windows update..

    But I also deleted the previous phone sync as I wondered if that might be an issue, since I read that if you reset your phone (Which I had..) you then can't load your old data back into it !

    That can't be right, can it ?

    I mean, the whole point of backing up your data off the phone is so you can restore it, if you get a new phone the same !

    Oh well, it wasn't much, just have to type all those numbers back in again..

    Reminds me of all those times I got a new phone in the past and used its software to transfer my old phone data over, and it never worked right, ever !

    You know how long it takes to type in 500 phone numbers..
