USB to Phone Answered

Is there a way to take an old USB cable and old cell phone charger and turn them into a Phone USB plug so you can plug it into your computer and upload ringtones and such?


I have actually taken my charger and spliced it with an USB cable that I found. Works great! hooks up to any USB port and charges it. I ordered a small solar cell that has a USB outlet so that I no longer have to plug it into the walls. I will post a photo when it comes in.

That would be an awesome instructable of someone could come up with a way to do that. Most likey you would have to take apart the part of the charger that connects to your phone because it probably doesnt output data. Definitly worth the time though if your lazy like me and dont want to go down the street and buy one lol.

I doubt it It would depend on the brand of phone.... If the charger has the contacts. And the phone probably wont send out a USB signal the signal from the phone would have to be translated.....POSSIBLE but WAY to much work... I think

maybe, maybe not. some cables have little boxes that has a circuit inside to translate the data.
