Im going to tell you the safest, fastest, and Easiest way to do it, using your USB ,but it may require you to change settings manually on your device first. Make sure you have a Memory card,
Choose settings for USB connections
1.Find "USB connection mo..."

  • Press the menu icon.
  • Press the fourth tab.
  • Press Phone settings.
  • Press Connectivity.
  • Press USB connection mo....
  • 2.Select setting

  • Press Mass storage
  • Press OK.
  • 3.Exit

    Once you've done this and have your memory in your device, Open the MY COMPUTER folder in your computer and connect your device to your computer using the USB cord, a new Icon will appear containing the folders from your device's memory card, that way you will easily be able to transfer files back and forth without the NEED of any sofware Cd's or use slow Bluethoot.

    And Welcome to the Viewty Family! Enjoy...!

    Make sure you double-check "Multitasking" (touch the image of squares in the upper right corner) and see that nothing is open but "Home Screen" and "Menu."  If you have anything else running, your USB connection won't work.

    LG viewty - using windows 7 on pc - unable to find my phone when connected via USB

    I have this PC Suite, It works fine with my wife's KF750. Not sure whether it is device specific or not, though. Give it a try, if you really want.

    Can not down load from pc using usb cable

    what's the brand of the phone? normally every brand has its own way of connecting to the computer. nokia for instance uses nokia pc suite as a sync application. normally a cd with compatible software is delivered with the phone. if you don't have the cd, you can download the soft from the manufacturer's web site. install this software first and wait for the soft installer to ask you to connect the phone at the right moment to make a valid synced connection between the pc and the phone...

    I cannot connect my lg viewty to my pc without it saying intialis

    Did you have installed the drivers?

    Run the software as administrator and by the warnig choose yes.

    The fallowing software will e installed:

    LG PcSuit
    LG modem driver
    USB modem driver

    Ths take a few min.

    Disconnect your LG before installing the software!!!

    When its finshed you can also make an internet connction via USB or Bluethoot.

    The second option go to your phone settings.
    choose connctivity and the USB connection mode.

    Choose Mass storage.

    Now the phone will act as an extern USB Harddrive.

    You can drop and drag files in the explorer of your windows.

    After you finished the job you had to do put the setting back to Data service to receive the calls

    I hope this will help.

    Cannot connect my LG Viewty to the computer via the LG PC suite

    hey.. if u connect ur phone via usb, be sure that ur phone is in home screen, because if not, for example if you connect your phone and you're in your message menu then you will open some apps in your pc suite the message will appear saying 'Fail to connect to the mobile handset, Please check the COM port and connect in idle screen. Due to the multifunction, despite idle screen, it can be failed to connect' now try it by connecting the phone but in home screen mode.. gotcha buddy?? hope soo..

    Unable to import messages from message manager

    Unfortunately it is a flaw with the PC suite and there's no way around it. There is currently no official solution for this but if you search there are help pages in the forums explaining how to transfer your messages and emails from the phone, albeit they are very complex, time consuming and often unreliable third party methods that are more than likely to break the data than store it. Sorry people.

    Usb connection drops out


    Download this USB driver for the Viewty:

    LG KU990 viewty firmware download:
    LG KU990 - V10a - 05-11-2007

    Now your PC will 'recognise' it as a Viewty and not just as an 'Unknown Device'.

    Hope this helps!

    ps that firmware is stored at megaupload, so if you're not registered with that site, just wait the 60 seconds or so to begin download.. No sense in 'paying' for access to free drivers!

    Failing connection to phone via USB

    Hi, I just had the exact same problem..
    I tried like FOREVER and I even said, if this try doesnt work; i'm giving up, and then... it finally worked.. haha :) so, this is what I did.
    (dont connect your phone yet but set your phone as data service) You open the program LG pc suite, and then click connection wizard > usb > and then here, you connect the both ends of the usb.. one end on your pc and the other on your phone, and then you press next. Hopefully it says something like Com Port Number and Phone Model. You click next and finish. So, now you are connected to the phone to your pc. To get photos to your pc, you click content. images. and copy and paste to where you like (pictures in your pc) and then your done :D this also goes to other files too :D

    I hope this really helped because I just learned it few minutes ago and I was about to scream because I tried so many ways. Hope this helped and Good Luck :D
