How can I view my cell phone screen on my laptop?

Updated April 08, 2017

Software such as MyMobiler, ImageExpo, and ScreenSplitr each allow the ability to view your cell phone screen on your computer monitor. MyMobiler supports phones that operate using Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile versions 5.0, 6.0 and 6.5. ImageExpo works on Symbian/S60, Windows Mobile, and Nokia Maemo devices. ScreenSplitr is created by Cydia to work with the iPhone and displays the computer screen as a smaller screen on the desktop.
