mine has always said/done that ever since I got it in October. I thought it was just part of active sync, but I know other people on the pac mate list use the same version of active sync as I do and they don't have it happen..

In the last couple of days, when I connect the Pac Mate to my PC, in addition to the usual series of tones, it now says 'mobile device connected'. It sounds like a recording of a human voice. The spooky part is that both the Pac Mate and my PC say it, but the Pac Mate just slightly behind the PC, so you get this spooky echo effect. When I pull the USB cable out, it says 'mobile device disconnected', with the same delay. It does sound a little spooky. This just started in the last couple days. It must have been in the last batch of Microsoft updates I downloaded. Not a complaint, just an observation.
