Behold 2 phone compatible with Windows 7 - 64bit?

by Grant_Justice / April 8, 2010 3:04 PM PDT

My question is, will a Samsung Behold II phone be able to sync up with my laptop and home computer running Windows 7 - 64bit?

I'm not absolutely sure which version of Android the phone ships with from T-Mobile, but I think it is 1.5 or 1.6.

I have read dozens of reviews over the past few weeks and didn't see anything about compatibility issues with W7 until today.

Thank you in advance for any insight.

Thanks for the tip on these boards...lots of great info that I will most certainly find useful as I explore the Behold 2 phone and encounter issues:

http://www.howardforums.com/

http://phandroid.com/

However, after several hours of searching various keyword combinations, in various related sub-forums, I am unable to find an answer to my original query. This leads me to believe that it is a non-issue. Win7 64bit must certainly be compatible with the Behold 2 phone whether it is running Android 1.5 or 1.6.

Just thought I would follow-up for anyone else who may see my original question.

Thanks again.

Here it works. I have a droid and a windows 7 64 bit machine. Setup was not intuitive but I find many challenged to set it up. For example my droid when I connect it up asks me if I want to charge, be a disk drive, sync and some other option. Your post sounds like you checked off the box to don't ask so you can't sync.

I know 100% it works on Windows 7 64 bit.
