Use BitPim to manage LG cellphones
Authored by: mpress25 on Jan 14, '05 12:16:59PM

It should be noted that directions to connecting to the phone and using BitPim should be followed very closely. It requires a special cable that can be bought at RadioShack or online and I remember having to download a modem driver as well to get my LG 4400 up and running with it.

The important thing is not to get too frustrated getting it connected. It's not a perfect solution for Verizon's complete lack of Bluetooth capabilities, but if you want better ringers (for free) and wallpaper, it does the job.

Go to the BitPim website to read fully.

Line Endings matter

I had no luck importing VCards or group VCards until I changed line endings from Windows to Unix. Before that BitPIM would just crash when trying to import anything.

There's a ton of additional, slightly dated information here: (specific to LG phones)

I never got MP3 playback working on my VX6000, but I found and transferred plenty of free midi ringtones.
