LG Chocolate and software

I was not aware that I had to buy software to play music on my phone. I have everything I need but the software. Verizon didn't tell me I needed so I brought the cable and memory card separate thinging I would just download it on the card and play if. Well I called them and someone finally told me that if will not read music without the software and I can only get it with a bundle of crap I already have. Where can I get the software for less $$$ or FREE?

When i plug the Lg chocolate vx8575 in my computer, the computer cannot find the hardware

Before you connect the phone to the computer, you need to install the LG driver.

Here is a link to a driver that should work. It may not be the newest version though. LG doesn't make it easy to find anymore.

If you want the Verizon official software with Rhapsody, go to and download the VCAST Music Manager.

Switching back to verizon from metro with same phone

all you need is lg downloader or lgnpst software you can google those and a verizon prl. and once you have either of those softwares and the drivers for your phone is installed u can get that from here: and a usb cable for your phone to connect it to your computer and where it says prl/eri u can load the verizon prl and write it to your phone. you will find it in the link i have given. dont look under the part for lg voyager but instead look under the section for LG-VX8500 Chocolate PRL - PRL.

    Music Transfer

    If that phone came from Verizon, it will only play v-cast songs.  That's how they get you to buy it.  By saying it's a "music player"
