Is there going to be a rebuild of this package for FC7? I could sure use
it. I wuz about to complain to the vendor that sold me a data cable for
my Verizon LG, which almost kinda sorta might work. 

Bitpim auto retries connection for about 10-15 minutes, then finally
hits on a connection reporting success, but nothing happens. The phone
makes a zinging sound, and thats all I got for my efforts. :) It would
be mo betta to try something better than what I've got so far. Thanks!
