I have a T-Mobile Vibrant (Samsung T959) with a damaged USB connector (which is why the previous owner gave it to me for free).
I am able to use the phone with no problem. I have three batteries and a standalone charger, and connect the phone to my PC through my home wireless network to add and remove content. I want to upgrade from Android 2.1 to 2.2, and have downloaded the Kies software to my PC. However, the Kies software keeps asking me to connect the phone ... even though I can see the phone on my PC using Windows Explorer. Is there a way to get the Kies software to recognize the phone without USB?
