Success Stories Wanted!
Authored by: lullabud on Jan 14, '05 07:48:14PM

I've used BitPim in the past with absolutely NO luck whatsoever. After reading this hint, downloading the new version and trying again I've still got nothing. The BitPim documentation leaves much to be desired, and more so for us Mac users. They even have a request in the documentation for submission of additional content for the Mac side. Detailed success stories would be *wonderful*, including BitPim version used, USB port name used, phone model, steps taken, and anything else that I'm most likely forgetting. Please post them here if you've gotten this to work or do end up getting it to work.

Mine is a success. However...

Though I have no experience using the address book, I have uploaded various wallpaper and numerous MiDis to my phone using BitPim.

Unfortunately, it took a lot of finagling and trial and error. Though there is plenty of info to be found on the BitPim site, it isn't spelled out as simply as 1,2,3.

The steps I took included:

1. Having the right cable.
2. Downloading the correct modem script for network connection of my phone
3. Setting the Port on my LG X4400 correctly
4. Ensuring the BitPim was able to find the serial port on the phone and talk to it before exchanging information

It may take some time to figure out -- and I wish I had written down the procedure to pass along -- but it does work with some patience. (And it was worth it!)
