Note: Motorola Phone Tools does not work with Android devices.
Clunky, crashes a lot and not very well maintained (at least last time we checked), the Motorola Mobile Suite can do a lot of things. Unfortunately, those lots of things that we tried to do often slowed down the PC or simply crashed the system.
Motorola Mobile Phone Tools (or MPT, now known as Motorola Media Link) promises users the ability to sync and backup contact information (useless if you use Google Accounts), copy and store music and media files, provides options for phone firmware updates and more.
We also found MML to be more responsive and less prone to crashes when run on Windows XP as opposed to Windows 7.
Though if you're looking for something that's a little better but less user-friendly, we'd suggest checking out Droid Explorer, but only if you're using a modern Android-powered device.
