    Do not tell me to use the "cloud", it's the stupidest idea ever and I won't consider it.

    My s10+ on the Dex Station is my desktop. The external monitor is big enough to read anything on. But it's not portable. Sometimes you just need a larger screen mobile device. I have'nt decided witch one yet, (suggestions would be appriceated) but whatever I use, I will have to be able to sync it the old fasioned way with the host conputer (the s10+).

    Not too long ago, I would plug a Palm, Windows Mobile, or Android device into my notebook and Hotsync, Activesync, or HTC Sync would start automaticaly and sync MS Outlook and Media Player data between the two devices. Now I want to plug an android tablet into my Dex Station and do the same with Calendar, Contacts, pictures, music, and other data. I want it to function exactly (or almost exactly) the same as plugging a pda into the old Windows PC.

    What Android app does this?

    I don't think there's any good solution for that. There are programs that allow you to sync an Android device with a PC via USB, but I haven't seen any that can sync two Android devices together. The Android-to-Android USB connection solutions are only if you want to transfer the existing data on one Android device to a new device that you're setting up.

    A transfer app on each device would be a little less than perfect, but it would work. When I had an HTC 3D and View, I used HTC Sync with the PC, and HTC Transfer to sync one to the other. I just had to sync one device, then the other, if both had changed.

    Right, but what I was referring to is only for setting up a new phone, not for recurrent data transfer on an ongoing basis.

    mustang7757, link to PC only works with a Windows PC, not another Android device.

    B. Diddy, are you refering to Samsung Smart Switch? It looks like what I need, but I don't want to set anything up or erase anything.

    I think I explained that in my original post, but I'll try again so even you can understand. I want to sync my calendar, alarms, task list, messages, mail, contacts, pictures, videos, music, books and office documents between my Android phone, Android tablet, and Android mini tablet. I will not use a Windows PC or the "cloud" to do this.

    OP doesn't want to use the cloud because of their aversion to it.

    As I mentioned before, I don't think you have any good options to directly sync one tablet to another via cable. The solutions that are available are primarily to set up a new phone.

    I'm pretty sure I said, loud and clear, I WILL NOT use any "cloud" service, and I said it more than once.

    Without that, I don't think they can . Everything going that way and seamlessly.

    I'll be completely frank with you -- if you refuse to use the cloud, you'll be left behind. Direct device-to-device cable sync is outdated technology. Good luck.

    What about Samsung Smart Switch? I might just try it, but I don't want to mess anything up. It *looks* like a good one way sync, but I don't want to remove anything from either device.

    From what I can tell, the only kind of sync through Smart Switch is for Outlook, but not anything else. But I don't have experience with Samsung devices, so I can't say for sure.

    These are two of the nicest, most helpful guys on the forum.... and they're trying their best to help you. I'll say what they can't, you have a rather rude attitude towards people freely giving their time to try and help you. Good luck with getting help on this forum with that approach. As Mustang said gnite!

    Airdroid can send information from one device to another but not sure whether it would sync your data in the way you want it to.

    Dex just isn't a Windows style PC and it just runs from the data on your phone. I haven't heard of an app that works this way android to android.

    And please refrain from being rude to our forum members. We are all volunteers and we are trying our best to help you. I really don't see a solution to your problem as pretty much every service out there that syncs these days are cloud based in some regard.

    Dex is as much a PC as Windows, it just isn't Windows, and some Windows apps aren't available for it. They aren't available for android either. The easy solution I was looking for may not be available, but that doesn't make it "helpful" to ignore what I said to begin with and keep telling me to use the cloud. Saying "no" isn't rude. Forcing me to say it over and over is.
