Have you installed the device\handheld software onto your computer? What carrier are you with? What is your software version on your 8130? Goto: options then click on about. The software should be 4.x.x.xx right below snartephone on the first page. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

Here's another way to check and see if the device/handheld OS is on your PC since you say with vista you don't have the same add/remove programs option.

Yeah, it is blank, so where exactly do I get the download software I need? I've looked all over and I keep getting what I guess is the newest desktop manager version? What exactly is it I need?

Hold on, I'll get you a link.

OK, here's the link:
Choose the one for 8130 wireless handheld. Download it and when it asks you to save or run, choose run. It may take a while to download depending on your internet connection.
Once you're done doing that it should start working for you. If you have other trouble or questions, just post back here.
