There is a lot of misinformation on the web stating (incorrectly) that a PC data cable cannot be used with this phone, so I'm writing to confirm that I followed the instructions in Mitja Kukovec's April 2 message and was able to use my PC data cable to transfer files in and out of my Nokia 1680c-2b, using Nokia PC Suite version 22.214.171.124, downloaded from europe.nokia.com/pcsuite (running on Windows XP). I purchased the cable on eBay from a seller in Hong Kong for around $7 including shipping, and I installed the driver from the CD that came with it.
After driver installation and plugging the cable into a USB port, it showed up in the Windows device manager (under "Ports") as a "Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM5)." After installing PC Suite, I closed the "Get Connected wizard," opened the PC Suite program and selected Settings, Manage Connections, double-clicked on "Serial Cable (CA-42)" and changed its setting to COM5. After a short pause, a balloon popped up from the PC Suite tray icon with the message "Nokia 1680c-2b connected via serial cable." I was then able to use the file manager in PC Suite to browse and transfer files in the phone's memory, and it worked perfectly for me. I hope this information is helpful to people who are having difficulty using a data cable.
