Programs for $0: MyPhoneExplorer
If you have a Sony Ericsson phone, basically any phone that is on this list, as well as some means of a connection to your phone, I'd recommend MyPhoneExplorer for the job. easily acts as a great organizer for your mobile phone.
Bluetooth connectivity, once you get it going (and it's surprisingly easy on Windows 7), makes life so much easier. Still works with a cable, as far as I can tell, so that's still an option as well. Once it's connected, you can view, create, and backup just about everything on your phone through this program. Contacts, calls, messages, individual files like ringtones, and so on. Just be careful with viewing files, though...sometimes the program crashes on that. The calendar feature works brilliantly, allowing a connection from your Outlook or even Google calendar directly to and from your phone, and many settings to customize said connection to what you want to happen.
Other features I'm starting to use is the actual live connection itself. If the phone is connected constantly, your PC pretty much can act as the interface; typing up text messages, changing settings, almost all of it can be done through MPE. If you've got the means, grab this program. It's only $0.00...though you could always donate. I'm sure the developers would appreciate it.
Grab MyPhoneExplorer at the developer's website, FJ Software Development.
