Question about LG KM500 Cellular Phone - Unlocked

2 Answers

How do I download games/ringtones for LG Shine KM500d?

I recently got a new LG Shine KM500d after my other phone broke into two separate pieces, from ebay. I am a t-mobile customer, and it appears that t-mobile doesn't sell the phone but it worked fine once I put my sim card in. Only problem, when I tried to get a game from the t-mobile website, it wouldn't let me do anything with the sent text message. So, how do I get games for the phone? Or ringtones for that matter (though I suppose I can just make those)? -note: the manual is in Spanish, so I can't read any of it, and so far haven't found a manual online that may have the answers I need. So, if anyone can help, that'd be wonderful!

    Hmmm... GPRS? So does that mean I have to speak with T-mobile? It says the GPRS is open when needed already. And wait, let's step back... what is GPRS? Do I need internet access?

Is your GPRS open? Your GPRS must first be opened via your network provider. (Usually they have different settings for units) And your unit should be able to support the games you want to download.

    Here is the definition for GPRS, you can click on the link.

    Yes you can opt to call your service provider and ask if they have settings available for your unit. You can call your service provider usually on a toll free hotline. Follow the steps and a T-mobile representative will assist you throughout your conversation. :) Try asking if they can support your unit, try asking if they have compatible games available for your unit also.

    BTW does your unit support WLAN? or can you access the internet at the moment?

    Because if you can, maybe the games you wanted to download is not compatible with your unit, or maybe you can check LG website (via your unit) and browse categories like games, etc then, (if you can find tabs like downloads>games you can try dowloading there.)

Can you tell me how to set mp3 songs as my ringtone

You can download a free program called bitpim from You can make your own tones, and transfer pics, videos, addressbook and more. There are some good youtube videos that will show step by step how to make the ringtones.

Cant download ringtones to my LG shine phone

you have to have a memory card in your phone for it to show up as an attached device.....otherwise you will need a program that will recognize the device to transfer data to it. i recommend getting a cheap little micro sd card so that you can simply pull up the device from <my computer> and copy the ringtones/mp3s straight to the removable disk.

good luck

My lg shine flip

Could you try and download limewire (google it) or something

find what song you'd like to use as your ringtone, and then transfer it to your phone using the cable that came with your LG?

On my phone it can only store so much and then it needs to use a minidisk.

Another way is to go on the internet using your phone and download songs...maybe there's some free ones that are available.

hope this helps.
