Do you need some kind of software to be able to transfer files to the phone/memory card, or are the drivers and software built in?

It simply acts as flash memory. If you're trying to use the USB cable, then you have to go into Tools (Menu, 9) and choose USB Flash Memory (#). This will turn off your ability to make and receive calls while it's on, but you can then hook up the USB cable and access the memory card just like it's a disc. Once you're done transferring files you can unplug it and turn the feature off. Good if you don't have a card reader, but if you have one it's probably better since you won't lose your phone while you're doing it.

I've tried connecting with USB, but everytime I choose the USB flash memory on the phone, the phone just turns on and off and doesnt connect to the computer. When I first connected the phone to the computer it said there was an error installing the drivers and the device will not work properly. I hooked it up to a different computer and the same thing happened, do you know where I can get the drivers from??

This is a page for drivers..... http://www4.sprint.com/pcsbusiness/support/do wnloads/index.jsp
Choose your computer os and then choose the modem usb connection manager.......{second down?} This driver will connect the phone to a pc as a modem or for bitpim/others that you want to view files on your phone. Although, your computer should automatically recognize the memory card as a drive onto itself..........without a driver. Menu>Tools>USB Flash Drive>menu>yes......This only connects pc+trans memory card........not pc+phone files...........check to see that your memory card is inserted and correctly, or maybe your os is far outdated..........me

I'm having the same problem and the drivers don't help with this but you get the drivers from sprint just login click Phone Details > Software Download > Select operating system > Download "Sprint PCS Connection Manager for Phone as Modem/USB Cables". I think we got faulty phones I'm going to take mine back to get a new one if I don't find a solution soon.

I was at the sprint store today and almost bought the LG 550. But they told me that I would not be able to uppload the MP3's I already own on my computer to it. The only ones I could listen to were songs I bought from Sprint. Please tell me they lied to me. I want to buy this phone, but that is screwing the customer if that is true.
Also, I would like to be able to upload my own ringtones to it from my computer. Is that possible? Thanks in advance.

Well I took my phone in and Sprint gave me a new data cable. This fixed nothing but the tech guy at sprint said it connected to his computer as a flash drive so it must be a problem with the software connecting to specific computers I have an e-machine with an AMD Athelon 64 processor. I guess it's either that or the repair guy at sprint is full of ****.

AGAIN, the question was about software. Where is the software to save/create contacts, text messages, music, wallpaper, ringtones, etc? In other words does syncing software to make one's like easier exist? Every other phone I owned came with a cd with it's own proprietary software for this purpose!! Non-proprietary software? Anyone?

Bitpim is what I keep running across, it is free contact/ringtone sync software....Problem is, as far as I know, they do not have a donated Fusic phone to do their work from. Another is one called MobileAction, that has to have some exchange of money. I saw on the Samsung website one time, what looked like excellent free sync software, but only for their phones. LG has whats called "LG Phone Manager" but seems to include only phones used in the UK. For easily getting photos, ring tones, Java applications and movie clips to your phone us the free Ringerpost.com uploader, you can also find lots of worthwhile downloads there including games and gps.

Don't you have to pay for ringer, wallpaper, game downloads? Isn't it a certain charge per megabit or something like that. I think the most compatible software is DataPilot. Not 100% compatible but like 60-70% compatible. Also, I'm going to see what I can find out on this "LG Phone Manager" and I'll report back here.

I miss typed..... Ringerpost.com is a free uploader to use, you can use either a jump code to reach your material through your wap browser, or have them send a text message that will cost .10? depends on what aproach you want to take..........I have had my fusic for almost 3 months and still do not have my contacts installed............I am waiting for free software also, so at the touch of one button I can watch all my phone numbers transfer to my phone. Check out Ringerpost.com you will not be disappointed. me

To get back regarding the LG Phone Manager which is only available with LG phones in the UK. This software is available and custom-made for each UK phone. But the Fusic is not in that lineup. So, I gues we are SOL.
