I believe it's been done via Bluetooth using Blueman.

Jave my iPhone configured, but after that it's gibberish. In the synaptic third party software, I can't put that in, so I clicked on the link and put in the first one for jaunty. That worked I think but I don't have imternet to download anything to my laptop.

had to reinstall ubuntu again, but this link doesn't explain how to do it on 9.04 correctly. So please explain what to do step by step so I don't have to install all over again. It's frustrating

Maybe that's because people didn't know?

No. There are tons of videos for 9.10 and they say there's an easy way to do so on 9.04, but alas noone cares to explain. I heard that these forums were amaZing, but funny how people give the run around in all of my threads. Just because I don't understand doesn't mean you don't have to explain something in a forum when someone is learning. It's horrible on here.

Ok you want the answer. Here it is. First and most important thing is you need an internet connection. Then you have to download the app from the software sources. Then I think you have to download iTunes with WINE. If you want to make things easier you can just sell your iPhone and get a Linux phone and all is plug and play with those.

Now about the forums. I was once like you. Did not understand alot and what I did was buy an Ubuntu book from the bookstore and studied it until the binding fell apart. That would be a good idea for you.

THanks. I couldn't even get anyone to tell me I needed internet. The one persons link said I didn't.


And I'd love to buy the book. But the cheapest one is a pocket guide for 45 at barnes and noble
