Introduction

Embedded on some older high-end phones and almost every single mobile phone today, Infrared has been around for a long time, and is a great, inexpensive way to connect your phone or other device to your PC or Laptop.

Infrared is a wireless connection method, but unlike Bluetooth the two devices you wish to connect have to be in line of sight of each others Infrared ports. However, like Bluetooth, infrared gives you the ability to do fast transfers from one device to another, on the MA-620 you can utilize a maximum of 115.2K (SIR). Fast enough to transfer any file in seconds.

This super-fast speed is achieved by using USB 1.1 and 2.0 compatibility. USB ports are pre-installed on most systems today, and are inexpensive to install if you dont have one. USB 1.1 is an older but still quite fast version, whereas hi-speed USB 2.0 is a lot faster.

The MA-620 isnt only compatible with mobile phones; a wide range of other devices can be connected with this adapter. PDAs, laptops, other computers, Pocket PCs and even some digital cameras have infrared possibilities. All kinds of devices used in everyday life can be synchronized to each other, and youll be where you have to be when you have to be.

The MA-620 sales package includes everything you need to get your mobile phone personalized and synchronized. The Handset Manager on the CD has software designed for all of the supported phones. To see if your phone has software on the CD, check the Compatibility section of this article, a handy table has been included so you can quickly check. Once the software has been installed and your phone set up, the possibilities are endless to what you can do. Some of the things are edit colour pictures, upload polyphonic ring tones, create MMS, SMS, or EMS messages, send a group SMS, synchronize your calendar data, and transfer all kinds of files.

The two LEDS on the MA-620 indicate wether or not the adapter is on and ready for connection, and the other will tell you when a transfer of data is happening.

Although the included software is great and has heaps of features, other software is supported by the MA-620 like Nokias official Data Suite, and other third party products.
