LG Scoop after using BitPim

I used the BitPim program to try and put ring tones on my LG Scoop from Alltel and that worked fine and everything...

But now after I've gotten the ring tones to work, I can't send, receive, or save any kind of multimedia, especially pictures for sure.

I followed the instructions for using BitPim to put ring tones on my phone and I haven't changed anything else with the phone as far as using the program.

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

I never had that problem but after i put ringones on my phone, my screen started freaking out and kept getting worse and now after 5 days it's completely white. i ordered a new one and should be here soon but do you think it was just a unstable phone to begin with? (the side buttons didn't work before) or should i not try it with the new one too?
thanks

I have a LG scoop from alltel and i want to put my number on a verizon LG model VX8550A, how do i do that?


if youre trying to program your alltel phone number on a verizon phone yet keep your alltel service its not going to work. the phones are locked to the carriers and cannot be unlocked. depending on where your cellphone number is based out of your serivce will most likely turn into verizon anyway. but as far as i know right now you cannot use the verizon phones.
i could be wrong, i live in an area that is going to become AT&T not verizon.

Go to this link and download the drivers. Plug in your phone and when it asks about a driver click install from a specific location. Once the driver is installed, open Bitpim and click auto-detect phone. Then go to View -> Filesystem. Go to the filesystem and there is your access!

Simple solution, Alltel belives and enforces digital copyright management, while you can listen to your favorite tones and music, you will NOT be able to use them as ringtones, or use them with any of the features of the phone other then playing the tunes for entertainment. The only way to use files as ringtones is to purchase the files from alltel, or use their realtone jukebox, etc.

Sorry about the news , but welcome to ALLTEL!

have the newest version of bitpim
make sure you have the drivers for the USB cable you are using.
open bitpim
let it find the phone(it will come up as other CDMA phone)
click FILESYSTEM on the left at the bottom
expand the folder
click dload
right click on lg_mysound.dat and save it to your desktop
after you save it right click lg_mysound.dat in bitpim and delete it
now click brew
click media
click lk
click ms

now drop the songs you want to use as ringers in this file. they will automaticlly load into your phone. it isnt the fastest process but it works. 

after they are done loading onto the phone, unhook USB cable from computer, power the phone off and then back on.

the items you just transferred with now be in the my audio file where they need to be to assign them for individual ringers.

NOTE:

everytime you wnat to add new ringers to the phone you have to complete all the steps above, even the deleting that one certain file. not a very hard process and has worked well for me. 

good luck and happy mp3 loading songs into the phone as ringers.

just choose the Tech support option and listen to the computer talk for a while, then select to speak with a representative

Motorola Razr V3 wont delete


Have you updated the firmware lately? Some of the newer versions wont let you delete your ringers once they are stored. Do you know how to use bitpim? If not shoot me an email and i can walk you through it. It is really easily to use. Good Luck!
