    Anyone can help?

      It could be your fone software isn’t compatible with sp2. Have a look at the site of your mobile fine manufacturer for an update.

      A lot of SP2 problems are hardware related so I would first rule out all of the hardware involved.

      If you are sure that the hardware is SP2 compatible it has to be something to do with the security permissions that have been setup during the SP2 installation.

      While I have not personally run into this problem with Cell phones I have had a few IR Printers no longer work after a SP2 installation and the only real fix is to remove SP2. But then it was a definite hardware problem.

      Remember that SP2 is not a patch but more of a rewrite of XP that is a mistake that a lot of people make.

      Uninstalling SP2 is easy, provided you installed it without any command line switches telling it not make a backup. Just go to “Add / Remove Programs” in Control Panel. You’ll find a list of all installed software there, including SP2. You can now select to remove SP2 and your System will be restored to the state it had before you applied SP2. I’ve done it a couple of times without any problems, although I do suggest you make a backup of all your import data before you start. There is always a small chance that things go wrong (Murphy’s Law).

      Good luck.

      PS. It won’t take as long as it took to install SP2, but it will take some time. By the way, what fone do you have and which version of fone Software?

      To uninstall SP2 just go to the uninstall panel and chose SP2 and uninstall it. Unfortunately you will also loose all of your previous other patches as well. But it is still a lot faster to update the computer again rather than reload.
