The LG 5550 Datacable and BITPIM usage guide! Upload Ring tones and wallpaper to your phone!


I am using 0.7.18 of BITPIM

Sound and Screen Problems

Is anyone having problems with their screen and sound. With mine, the sound during a call will come through only every once and a while so i have to use the speaker phone just to call people. Then, my screen started going out and it will either go out or become jumbled. Any such luck with fixing that problem? Supposedly LG is supposed to be coming up with a fix but none has happened yet.

User Manual

I have had this phone for about a week and love it so far.

BUT........GOOD LORD!!!! does anyone else think the user manual is woefully inadequate? I would personally like more detail and examples like how to use features not just how to turn them on.

I have been to LG's website hoping there would be more detail to no avail. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?

Thanks all !!!!

LG VX5550/LX5550 USB Data Cable

I've been looking for this on Ebay but cannot find one. They charge too much in the Alltel store, so where can I get this cheaper? Unless they don't make one for this phone yet?

LX5550 Data Cable & Software

I'm new to AllTel and the LG LX5550, and am looking for software to manage phone features from my desktop PC. LX5550 features such as calendar, phonebook, ringtones, etc.

I've tried LGE's PC Sync and Connectivity software....Sync only manages phonebook, very primitive app. The Connectivity software had a glitch that the hardware wizard stalled out on the serial port search, and did not progress to the USB ports, failing to find the phone.

I've had a Samsung 8500 with a freeware software package SCHPU that worked great off my COM1 port. Very robust piece of software considering freeware.

I'm wondering if Susteen Datapilot is any good? Are the management features very robust? Can this be run off a serial (COM1) port? Is there an...

Uploading Wallpapers/Ringtones

I'm considering buying this phone and have checked out the USB data cable and all the threads about wallpapers. Does this phone allow you to effortlessly upload new wallpapers and ringtones via USB data cable from your PC? I noticed that Alltel isn't the best service out there for multimedia phones.

Proper picture sizes

For things like Wallpaper and Contact IDs, what are the proper sizes that they have to be? I have a one wallpaper on my phone that was 128x128. It works as a wallpaper, but cuts the edge off slightly. I'm not even sure what it takes to get a contact ID to show up. I've tried a few different resolutions but they never seen to show up. Anyone have any ideas?

Voice recognition

Since you can have more than one number for a contact, can the phone also tell which one you want?
home: 234-1234
cell: 289-7237

when I say "Steph" what number will the phone pick?


Do I have to say "Steph home/cell"?

also does the front display, have caller ID?
