Question about LG CG300 Cellular Phone

6 Answers

I have an LG CG300 phone. I have taken pictures of my Mom, who has since died. I am trying to find some way to connect the phone to my laptop and download the pictures. I have tried 3 different USB LG cables. I have tried BitPim (doesn't support LG CG300), PC-SYNC, MA-8020 USB Data Suite, HandSet Manager, a Bluetooth dongle and Susteen/Datapilot. 2 of them will download my contacts, but none will allow picture downloads. I need help. I cannot take the pictures again. I am so frustrated. If anyone knows of any way, and can take me through the process step by step, I will be eternally grateful. There must be a way

    Hi, My phone doesn't have a "connectivity" on it. If I go into Menu, Settings, there is a connection setting. It's options are GPRS Attach, Network Profile or Reset Network. I looked in the User guide and it doesn't list connectivity or usb in it anywhere. I guess I still need help. I appreciate your response. If I am doing something wrong, let me know. I'll be glad to try anything. Bev

    Hi, It'll be tomorrow before I can check my email again. I've got to be up early to go to work. Thanks, I look forward to your solution. Bev

  • bevseabolt Jun 28, 2009

    I don't know how to do that. I use my phone for calls, nothing else.

  • bevseabolt Jun 30, 2009

    You must think I'm extremely dumb, but I have no idea how to do what you've described. I suppose the second option would be the simplest. If you are willing to step me through that, then I am willing to try it. If you'll be patient with this dumb blonde, I'll eventually catch on, hopefully. Sincere thanks Bev Seabolt

    Hi, I already have an LG CG300 usb cable. In fact, I have 3 of them. One came with data pilot and one I purchased online made specifically for my phone. Since I have a cable, what's next? thank you.

  • bevseabolt Jul 01, 2009

    Hi, ok, I'll follow the process you describe and then I'll get back to you when I finish it. thank you. Bev

  • bevseabolt Jul 01, 2009

    I've installed the software. It sees my phone, and I can see my contacts. I still have the same problem though, it won't let me see any pictures.

  • bevseabolt Jul 05, 2009

    Hi, No problem seeing my sim chip, problem is, pictures are not on sim chip, they are actually on the phone itself. That is why I am having such a problem. Any other suggestions?

  • bevseabolt Jul 09, 2009

    As I keep telling everyone over and over and over again, I have the data cable, in fact, I have 3 genuine LG CG300 cables made by 3 different manufacturers, and I can't do it myself. My phone connects to my computer successfully, I can read and see my address book, it just cannot see the pictures on my phone. I may take it to my service provider and see if they can do it. I am very frustrated.

OK. Go to any phone store that sells LG, like a verizon. Show them your phone and tell them to assist you in installing a data disc. Also ask them to assist you in transferring your moms photos to the disc.

Once that is done you can take your disc to any walmart or other photoshop and have those photos printed off, put on a regular disc or whatever. Also, if your computer has the capacity to play the small discs directly you can insert that disc and transfer the entire contents to your computer.

If your computer does not handle the little phone discs ask around as most newer computers do have this capability.

Hi there,
You need to do the following.
Go to a local phone shop and ask them to transfer the pictures into an USB memory stick, this is done using an USB data cable on a computer where the phone software had been previously installed.
If you want to do it yourself all you need is a data cable like this : Lg Cg300 Data Cable.

And you need the phone software.

The cable can be ordered at any local phone shop.

The phone software can be downloaded entering phone details here.
If my comment had been helpful, then please do not forget to accept the solution.
Many thanks.

Ok
connect your cell phone to computer with usb cable.
Then you say that usb drivers for your mobile are install correctly right ? then your mobile is detected in computer.
Then open my computer and you can see your memory card as removable disk.
Now if you r not able to see pic then go to tool => folder option and then go to view Then enable op[tion button "show all hidden files and folder .

I'm extremely sad on the great demice of ***********. I can understand how precious those pictures would be to you. I'll first try to move those pictures to your pc then I'll talk about connecting your mobile to your pc. To copy those pictures to your pc you have two options. 1. You can take someone else's Nokia 3500 and above model mobile with blue tooth alongwith its data cable and pc suite. 2. Enable blue tooth on that friends cellphone and through your lg send those pictures to your friends mobile. Now install pc suite and when pc suite asks connect the phone to the pc. Don't connect before or else it will generate error. Now you can copy your mothers pictures to your mobile.
Second way is your hand set is having gprs you can ask your service provider for enabling gprs on your handset and sending gprs settings for your handset. Once you receive your settings and sms that gprs is activated switch off the phone take out the sim wait for 2 minutes. Re-insert your sim. Through your browser open flickr.com and upload your mothers photograph over there to your personal account. If you don't have one you can create one through pc. Now you can access those photographs from any where in the world.
Once you have retreived your photographs remove all the softwares which you have installed on your pc for your handset. This solution also is going to be a big long so posting it in next post.
Thankyou, Mahendra

    What you need is to get one of your friends cellphone just ask him that it is having blue tooth. Take his assistance in switching on his blue tooth on his hand set. Go to the pictures which you want on pc from your mobile. Don't open it just click on options and select send option. under send option select blue tooth. It will search your freinds mobile and will send those pics to that mobile. Once your pics are there in your friends nokia mobile. Just connect it to your pc and on mobile select mass storage model. That mobile will be detected as a pen drive on your pc/laptop with a new drive letter. open the new drive detected go to the pictures you require and copy them to your pc. Once you have done this contact me for further assistance. If any problem doing this you are always welcome for clarifications.

    I tried to search the net for connecting your phone to pc for free but to no avail. This is the cheapest which is presently available at this site. You can check it out.

    Firstly, you shall remove all the softwares from your pc which you installed for your mobile and then restart your pc. Secondly take a usb cable which came alongwith a cd. Plz do not connect cable or mobile to your pc till asked to do so by the software. Now open your cd in the computer there will be a readme file inside the cd open it and correctly check wether it is going to work for your current software or not what are other requirements eg RAM etc. You will find a setup file inside that CD dbl click and run the software. If you cannot explore the cd and some software is directly running just by inserting the cd then close the software and go to your cd drive. Right click on it and select explore. Your CD will be opened. after dbl clicking the setup.exe it will ask you to accept the agreement and all just install the software. After completion restart the pc. On restarting you will find an icon on your desktop for your new mobile software. double click it if its asking you to connect the mobile then connect your mobile via cable with pc usb. Don't do anything for 5 minutes let windows auto plug and play install the drivers for your mobile. Then do as it is being told by the software.


    Let me know what happens if you wish to use internet through that mobile on your pc that could also be taken care of.

I can think of a way. How about connecting to internet from your phone. And mail those photos to your own mail ID.. and you can access them from it?

Forget everything.there is a simple way.: Go to your LG's menu, and select "Connectivity"

Select "USB Connection"

Select "Mass Storage"

Now simply connect your LG to your PC via a USB cable, and both your phone memory and memory card will be recognized by your PC as removable drives. Browse through to copy, cut and paste your files.

thanks for using fixya.keep updated.

How do i upload photos from my LG c300 onto my laptop? I expected the phone to come with a USB cable but it does not.. any answers?


Seeing as this phone is made for mere simplicity. Calling, texting, POSSIBLY internet.... My best bet is that if you can save your email address in your contacts send your pictures one at a time to your email. [ DO NOT DO THIS IS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE UNLIMITED TEXT AND PICTURE MESSAGING. ] Good Luck and I hope I have helped.

Generally, bluetooth passcodes are "0000".

Unless it was specifically changed, that should let you pair with pretty much any bluetooth-enabled device. Hope that helps!
