The problem is a driver issue. It is strictly a LG/Verizon problem, and not Windows. What you should is hook up your phone your computer LG USB cable and using the Music Essentials CD-ROM.
Install the latest version of BitPim where you can find at http://www.bitpim.org/ .
"I hooked up my phone to my computer via the USB cable, and opened BitPim. Much to my dismay, bitpim did not find the COM for the LG Modem".
However, Vista popped up the window in the taskbar telling me that new hardware was detected but could not be installed. I went to Start > Search > Device Manager
Once the Device Manager is opened up, you should see an unknown hardware profile for the USB cable/phone. In my case, Vista seemed to recognize the fact that it was a LG USB Modem, but didn't have the driver. Anyway, right click on the unknown driver and select "update driver software." Surprisingly, Vista will tell you it found a driver. Unfortunately, when when you go to install the driver 2 new unknown drivers will appear.
To fix the 2 unknown drivers, all you have to do is insert the VCAST Music Essentials disk into your disk drive, and point Windows in the direction of the files for the drivers on the VCast Music Essentials CD (in my case, the D: drive).
Windows finished the install, and from their BitPim recognized the cable on COM5.
That should work.

I had the same problem! I just looked up in the manual and the shorcut is menu,8,7,3 to COPY all contacts or menu,8,7,4 to MOVE them (copy keeps the original contacts stored on the handset memory. Now because I can only view the botom right hand corner of my screen I can't be 100% sure what happened next. I pressed (enter/ok). Then could tell I needed to enter a 4 digit code as the layout changed so tried my pin and then 0000. I think 0000 worked and vaguely remeber it as a factory setting security code or summit. Hope it works for you too.
so again I think thats menu,8,7,3,ok,0000,ok......... then wait a few minutes while you imagine the bar scrolling along as the contacts a re copied (took about a minute and a half on mine so maybe wait 3 minutes just to be sure. switch off put ur sim in another phone and see if it worked
if not try your pin in place of "0000"
