My next smartphone definitely will. That's just critical here.


Make sure your next one is an Android one. Install the SSHDroid app,
install an FTP client on your pc and you can use sftp to connect from
your pc to your smartphone. Works well.

Look at

I used the free version to get my contacts off my iPod.

Or use the LAN plug-in with TotalCommander and operate file transfers
using your Android device. I like that better than having to go to where
my computer is. :-)

What I really need the information, the question will be more specific,
since it's obviously being lost...


Good luck.

Per John Doe:
Requiring a file manager
with LAN isn't my idea of easy file transfer between devices. Easy
file transfer between devices is when the device shows up like a
USB flash drive shows up automatically in Windows Explorer.


Might depend on what one calls "easy". For me, an instant WiFi
connection from anywhere in the house is easy and having to go down to
the computer and plug in a USB cable is less than easy.


I would recommend a 20 meter USB cable with the B end in your living
room. More precisely, I would recommend it, except that it's a stupid
idea. Its only merit is that it's *my own* stupid idea :-)

Total aside: I'm listening to some music by Respighi streaming over the
Internet, but the CD at the station is apparently faulty, and it's
skipping like mad. Ah, modern technology!

The "Skipping" may be a result of your IP trying to discourage streaming
of audio and or video.

No problem with my Galaxy S3.


Apparently a "smart phone" is smart, while the iPhone isn't smart.

The phone is smart, some owners, not so much.

It's not smart, it's intuitive.

some owners, not so much.


Like the mass of Mac and iPhone users.

Steve Jobs made a killing off of the masses who couldn't care less
about personal computers. But that's not why we're here in these
PC user groups.

Intuitive to Person A does not guarantee intuitive to Person B.

Lots of PC owners have iPhones. Are you saying those PC owners are not
smart.

He did, but you introduced the iPhone into the discussion with your
original post. :-)

USB cables are limited to 5m length.
