Bundled with our V3i was Motorola's version 4.02 Phone Tools PC synchronization software. In a nutshell, it allows you to synchronize your PC and phone, send text messages from the PC, and download content from the PC to the phone and vice-versa. The connection between the PC and the phone can be done via a cable, Bluetooth or Infrared.
The main interface shows your V3i, with all options located on the right.

Main Interface

The synchronization suite is used to synchronize Outlook calendar or Phonebook with your Phone. The user can select a full synchronization, or just select a few contacts, which can be moved between the PC and the Phone. In addition to just synchronizing the information, the PC Suite allows the user to edit, add new, delete or search the both in the phone and on the PC.

Synchronizing (To-Do and Phonebook)

Text Messages gives the user an easy way to send SMS to one or multiple users directly from the PC.

The Multimedia studio allows transfer, edit or compose photos, videos, ringtones or MMS messages. It is separated in several sections – File Transfer Studio, Image, Melody, Video and MMS studio. All of Studios have many samples, which can be used. Very nifty feature is the preview panel where the images, the sounds or the videos can be played or seen as if they have been uploaded on the phone.

Overall, the Motorola's PC Suite is probably the best one on the market right now. It is very easy to use and has some advanced features, not seen in the rest of the bundled software packages.
