Question about LG VX-8700 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I can't get ringtones on to my LG VX8700! (bell)

I've tried bitpim (but it keeps saying I have no phone connected) and even LG PC Suite, but it says that there is not phone connected as well! I don't understand what is going on. Am I supposed to set the com port? Because I have, and it still doesn't work!

Your going to have to go into Bitpim and manually set your Com Port where the phone is plugged into on your computer then it should work over bluetooth

Lg kf350 screen ripped off how do you access txt


You can use LG suite or verizon's free program. Make sure you have the driver downloaded to your pc or it won't recognize your device. Also bitpim.org has a free program as well. Verizon's would work best.

LG PC Suite does not detect the LG KS360 phone!


You need to change the usb connection type on the LG. By default it is set to "mass storage", if you change it in your "connection" setting to "data storage" when you next plug in your phone, it will have all of the PC Suite settings available without any grayed out non-functionality.

I cannot figure out how to customize my ringtone too music i have downloaded to my phone. I have an LG DARE .. So I guess my question woul be how to do that


Well, your phone can play mp3's as ringtones but you have to save the file as a ringtone on your phone.

Most people choose to play only a clip of the song to save space...

It is generally easier to just download the ringtone you want with V-Cast but you can download from free sites to your computer and then transfer to your phone with BitPim.

BitPim can erase all of your data from your phone so you have to be careful.

Transfering ringtones to lg dare from pc


The best method I have found for transfer is to get a USB Bluetooth dongle. Make sure it is 2.0 compatible so that OBEX file transfer is supported.

Be careful with Bitpim, it can mess up your software if not used PERFECTLY, and it will void any warranty.

LG Env Phone and Ringtones


I can Help. First of all, dont pay a cent to verizon, i have had issues with them for a while about overcharges. Anyway...

Download a program called " Bitpim " Its free, or " ImTOO3gp " i got IMToo3gp from " the pirate Bay . com, using a bit torrent, the bitpim is from a site that downloads straight to P.C.

Hook your phone to your P.C. Via Cable. What i did is i bought the verizon package for there VCAST music sync. It has the P.C. Drivers for your phone but there built into the program so you have to install it, but dont actually use the program. once thats installed, hook the phone to the P.C. and you can use Bitpim to download all the data from your phone, the " ImToo3gpp also works but instead of hooking the phone, you take your Micro SD, put it in the bigger holder that should have come with it, get a USB media port that fits the SD card 9 got mine at wallmart for $13. once you connect it, it shows up as another drive on your P.C. like a Pin drive. Then you can covert the music and put the destination folder as the SD's music folder and the program automatically converts it. It pretty sweet and helpull. i was able to drop MP3's and i was able to make ringtones. You have to have a little working knowledge of converting files. The ringtones use MPEG 3 or 4 files and you have to put them in your " MY_SOUNDS" folder that the phone created on the Micro SD, dont drop them in the music folder or youll get ringtones playing in your songs list.

I was able to Make 3gpp2 Files of the ventuire brothers and have movies on my phone also but its tricky.

Hope this helps.

How to move music to phone from computer


Hi,
Your phone doesn't need or have any special software to transfer music. When you phone is connected, it should show up as a removable disc. Then all needs to be done it is drag and drop (or copy/paste) from your computer. Good luck!
