The simplest way to do this is to:

  1. Download and install BitPim from www.bitpim.org.
  2. Start BitPim
  3. Tether the phone to your PC with a standard micro USB cable (like the one that comes with a Droid or newer BlackBerry). BitPim will autodetect the VX5500.
  4. Go to the View menu and select "View Filesystem".
  5. Browse to the brew / mod / 10888 folder, right-click on each jpg file in the right pane, and select "Save" to save them to a folder on your computer
Unfortunately, you need to save the pictures one by one, so if you have a lot of pictures it will take a while. But hey, it's free and you're sticking it to Verizon.

If you don't have a cable and want to use BlueTooth instead, refer to this blog page (thank you to this gentleman, by the way): http://www.adrianandgenese.com/blogger/2009/01/28/uploaddownload-ringtones-and-wallpapers-to-your-lg-vx5500-using-bitpim-and-bluetooth/

    You can also just back up that file, 10888, and it saves all of the pictures at once in a single locations. AWESOME, thanks for the help.

    This was very helpful. Even the helpdesk at LG claims that there is no way to download pictures from a VX5500 using their USB driver. I was able to do it with the LG supplied driver athttp://www.lgforum.com/resources , and BitPim. This allowed me to determine that the pictures captured by the VX5500 were of low resolution, and that I don't need to bother to use it as a camera. Thankfully, I didn't have to pay Verizon 20.00 in data fees to discover that the LG VX5500 camera sucks.

    Thanks to everyone!!! Very helpful info. I just backed up pictures from my LG VX5500 by 1) installing LG's USB Modem software on my PC, 2) connecting my phone to PC with a Verizon USB data cable, and 3) backing up my 10888 folder from within the Bitpim ver. 1.0.7 software.

    this was good ty, had to get some pics for my brother-in-law. an option I tried after downloading each individually was to right click on the 10888 folder and then select back up directory and it will load all the pics first and then give you an option to save in a destination folder, the file you are saving will show up as 10888

Go to Best Buy and pick up a Datapilot for LG. It contains a universal USB cable with 3 different connectors (Bear version is for the VX5500). The CD contains a CD with a software suite and drivers for getting pictures off your phone and uploading mp3 for ringtones.

Don't buy into what VZ says (they told me point-blank that downloading pictures from this phone via USB was not possible). They said I had to go through the online album. The idea is to get me to spend more money on texting/uploading charges.

The drivers can be found in several places, on your wireless carrier's website, or on your phone manufacturers website.
Oftentimes, you can download them using the carriers communication manager for tethering. For example, http://vzam.net/ will allow you to download the VZAccess manager which carries USB drivers for most Verizon phones.

I am trying to get the pictures I took on my LG VX5500 phone off of my phone and onto my computer. Is there a way to download the pics from my phone to my computer or from the phone's memory to an SD...


Connect the phone with the usb cable or data cable.

And let windows down load the pictures from your phone.
Or select the album where your phone has the pictures
And down load them from there.

Good luck.

Pictures from VX5400 to computer using USB cable.


I have the cable. I use BitPim on my Mac because no other software works. Verizon has NO software and claims that the only way to get photos off is to send them to their website. I have bought 3 different cables and NONE transfers photos.

I am trying to upload photos but the computer doesn't acknowledge that it is pluuged in


You need to download the drivers for your computer! - if your running windows xp, try googling, "LG VXX5500 windows xp drivers" and download them. Drivers are little information files that allow your computer to identify something, at the moment, your computer has seen your phone is plugged in but it doesnt know if its a digital camera, a printer or a mouse and a driver identifies it for you.

You can also goto the LG website and download them from there, also you can install the software from the CD you may have been given with your phone.

Hope this helps,

Jake
