Default Free cell phone to pc tranfer software?

I have a Samsung SGH-A437, and i recently bought a data cable off ebay. It came with a CD with the drivers and software on it. Unfortunatly, the software that came with it doesn't recognize my phone (software is called BimPim) I have the drivers installed, but i really need to transfer photos to the PC and ringtones (and other stuff) the the phone. Can anyone suggest any other software that is compatible with the SGH-A437?

Thanks.

Either buy yourself a bluetooth dongle, or if you have a Mem-card, use a mem-card reader. Otheriwse check out the samsung website for official software.

I found software for it on the samsung website, but to get it you need to buy a package. Any tutorials on how to get BimPim working?

bitpim help: http://www.bitpim.org/help/

I'd try to help more but I've never set up a samsumg, only lgs. The one samsung I tried I didn't get to work, but it was like the 2nd phone I tried to do.

The problem is resolved. I found a download to Samsung's PC Studio and it lets me transfer pictures and media back and fourth. It's either my phone or the software but I can't transfer normal files or exe's, only pics and ringtones. Oh well, i just wanted to transfer the mobile gmail app (but it would cost me to get online with it so it doesn't matter now)
