I’ve been actively using PC Suite to connect to the N95 on my commute for about two weeks now and while it’s about the easiest way I’ve ever connected a phone to a laptop, there are a few missing details I’d like to suggest.
- First, it’s great to see when I connect and at what speed with that oh so (not) helpful windows balloon, but where’s the notice for when the connection drops? How about a tray icon that offers some sense of signal strength as well?
- Another really helpful bit would be the option to auto-reconnect as needed which is something the Mac has had by default for PPP connections since PPP existed …
Connectivity on the Metro North Train line is spotty at best. There are some awesome pockets of 3G-ness, but it’s mainly EDGE and there are some definite dark zones as well. I’ve been disconnected 5 times just writing this post … Being able to better manage what’s happening does not seem like a substantial ask. It should be basic stuff.
I should also note that my N95 has yet to freeze up in DUN mode like it regularly does when connected to the N810.
