I just purchased this phone and was going to play around with it. When i plugged the USB cable into my phone and computer it says to insert the disk for it. I don't have the disk so I was wondering if there was a way around this so I don't have to spend another 50 bucks just so I can get music etc on the phone. If anyone knows a way around this let me know. Thanks

Uploading Ringtones
Download and install the LG 8600 Drivers

Install the latest version of BitPim
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 automatically load into your phone. It inst the fastest process but it works.

After they are done loading onto the phone, unhook USB cable from compute...

There is a very easy way around this. A micro SD card with a reader. You can buy a 2GB off ebay for around $10 and a reader for around the same.

Actually, if he's trying to put ringtones on the phone, there is no other way aside from buying it from his cell provider. If it's just to put his own backgrounds on the phone then he could just transfer via bluetooth if he doesn't have a microsd card. Even if he does, he can just get a microusb cable and put the phone in "usb mass storage" mode from the settings menue.

If you're wanting to whole songs on the phone the safest and easiest way is to purchase a MicroSD storage card (up to 4GB). Once changing the menu settings to USB Mass Storage it's pretty easy to just drag and drop your media to the card. The supported media files are MP3, WMA, AAC and AAC+.

If you're looking for just adding custom ringtones I'd suggest using the website It has a large variety of photos and ringtones that are sent via MMS (picture message) that you can then store and use as ringtones. The site also has videos and games that our network doesn't CURRENTLY support YET ;)

Hope that info helps you out!
