Summary: My Sony Ericsson Z525a got the white screen of death, and the AT&T store told me there's nothing they could do to recover some short video clips of my new granddaughter from the phone. I read about this cable on the internet. I found it on Amazon and ordered one straight away. After it arrived, I downloaded and installed the software from Sony Ericsson and was able to recover the clips and several photos with no hiccups. I'm very pleased.
Works as it should; good alternative to Sony brand

Summary: I bought this for my wife so we could copy the important data -- such as pictures and whatnot -- from her cell phone to my computer, and this did what it was intended to do. I wouldn't rate the build quality incredibly high, but it's not low quality/cheap either. For the price I paid (less than $5 shipped), you really can't complain unless the wires were frayed and the thing didn't work -- neither of which were the case. I would definitely recommend this.
Summary: Worked perfectly with the Sony Ericsson software that we downloaded from the Sony website! After the drivers automatically configured themselves (OS: XP Pro SP2) for the phone, etc., connection was seamless with the TM506 phone we use. I was happily surprised to find that it DOES also charge the phone!! (contrary to reviews here that say it won't) Caveat: Don't know if this feature works for ALL models of phone that this cable supports. Again, we use the TM506.
