Here is some very helpful information i found on how to use a vx7000 cable with your vx8000 phone. Yes there are some bugs but other than that it looks great! Here is a link to the origanal forum. BE CAREFUL AND READ THE HOLE THING: ... »


To add video to the VX8000:

1. Connect your data cable to the vx8000 (at the time of this writing, the
vx6000 and vx7000 futuredial cables at radio shack worked).
2. load up QPST, in particular the EFS Explorer.
3. BACKUP and delete /dload/video.dat
4. browse to /brew/media/ and put a .3gp video file in the folder.
5. reset the phone, the videos will appear in the "FLIX Gallery" in...

I took a gamble and purchased the "VX-8000" cable from RPI Wireless: ... »

Works like a charm, at least for my purposes, which is as a modem. I just did a bandwidth test and saw 526 kbps.

Even better, it comes with the drivers, QLM software, and the correct username/password for the EVO network ({phone number}, password vzw).

No cost to browse?

This info has been great and it allowed me to pull files off of my new (way cool!) VX800. I have a problem though and am asking for HELP...

I have the RPI Wireless Cable/drivers and use BitPim "filesystem" to access the data.

I removed the dload/image.dat, added the file Tara.jpg (640x480) and rebooted the phone via BitPim and via battery removal. The file is there but the image does not come through. It shows the file name and a graphical question-mark.

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Nevermind! I found my BitPim version was old so the newer version does it nicely for me outside of the filesystem interface.
Very Happy
