Can you please help me? How do I copy and Paste a file to my cell phone?
And why do I keep getting no points found?
Thanks

Hello.
You need all the fields in an imported file for things to work right. That 
means for cells you need the mcc, mnc, areacode, and cellid. You especially 
need the id and userid fields. These insure that every item in the database 
is unique. The userid field is a crc16 calculated from the username you used

to register with the point share site. The id is a unique number, if 
generated by the phone it's a representation of the time in seconds when the

item was saved.
The program may import files with missing fields but it'll probably cause 
problems of some kind.
At some point there may be a program written that you could run on the 
computer to generate loadstone files from other data sources. This is pretty

low on my todo list at the moment thoe. If anyone else out there wants to 
write such a program that would be helpful.
