For almost all smart phones now, it is a USB cable that is used as the method for hooking up your phone to your PC. And while most phones are compatible with both Microsoft and Mac computers, some phones tend to be more compatible to certain formats. Luckily, the HTC Inspire can be used with both formats easily, even if some things are a bit different. When the phone is hooked up for the first time on your computer device, you may be prompted to download a driver. This should happen within a minute or two. Next, you might be asked to mount your mobile device. There might be more instructions to use the device as a media platform, or external storage unit.
Choosing to use your Inspire as an external storage unit might require you to use some HTC Inspire Accessories. A lot of phones come with an SD card that is removable. These accessories can be upgraded up to 32 GB. Remember, the more GB that you have accessible on your phone, the more files you can fit into your Inspire. A larger SD card allows for users to use take more videos and photos on your phone as well. Having extra USB cables isn't a bad idea either, especially if you are going to be syncing the phone with numerous computers, at different locations.
But be cautious, leaving your phone attached to a computer for too long can be dangerous. While your phone is attached, there is a good chance to accidentally pull on the cord and damaging your phone. To avoid this, get an HTC Inspire case. These cases come in plastic, silicone and many other hard or soft materials. Owners will have to determine what style of case is right for the way they use their phone. Just remember to always keep in mind that accidents are prone to happen, even if you're just transferring files from your computer.
One other area of concern to is on charging the phone. When the phone is hooked up t your PC, the phone is going to draw a charge. Sadly, this is by far the worst and slowest methods to charge your phone. Most computers simply don't put out enough current through the USB port to make it anywhere close to what you'd get from a wall outlet or car. This is why it's always a good idea to have another form of HTC Inspire charger so you can always have your phone charged and ready to use. Consider, the more you use your phone, the more you'll be finding it necessary to have multiple chargers and power adapters.
Syncing up your Inspire to your PC or Mac is really easy, and it allows you, the owner, to get the most out of your device. The Inspire is a great mobile device for music, pictures, video and much more.
