    The following is how to put ringtones on your LG Voyager VX8550 for free...USB:
    • Install drivers from the Music Essentials Kit or install the VCast Music Manger from here: V CAST Music Manager Download
    • Plug the phone in
    • Start BitPim - Edit > Settings > Browse. Make sure the 'LGE CDMA USB Serial Port' is the port being used in the com port field.
    • Set the phone type to LG-VX8550 - Get Phone Data.
    • Go to Filesystem (if you don't have the Filesystem link then View > Show Filesystem), expand it, and navigate to /brew/mod/10889/ringtones , right click in the ringtones folder and select "New" - browse to your ringtone and click "ok"
    • Restart the phone.
    Nothing other than the Filesystem tab will work unless the phone is supported as an option under "phonetype".

    Bluetooth:
    • This is similar to the above but first you must pair the phone and pc and get the Serial BT DIAG profile to connect one time.
    • With widcomm drivers you have "My Bluetooth Places" - go there and double click on the icon representing your phone.
    • Double click the BT DIAG icon to connect.
    • Take note of the com port that this connection uses (right click on the BT DIAG icon to see the port).
    • Use this in the com port field in BitPim
    • Follow the instructions for USB.
    If you have some other Bluetooth drivers the process should be similar.
