    I honestly don't think that there will be a problem with it unless that is as far as it goes as far as getting BitPim to work. There will be updates on BitPim, but I can't tell you when because I honestly don't know but if it doesn't work right now, then it will soon. Just keep checking out the BitPim website and they will let you know.

    I own a chococrap and am having a hard time, I am really missing my i730 right now, it was so easy to make and load ringtones.... anyways I have read what you guys have been saying and I D/L audacity and took an mp3 cut it down to 300kb and loadded to my micro sd put it in the "sounds" folder and I could not get it to work as ring tone, I saw no option to save as ringtone either, then tried to email it to my phone but emails with the mp3 were never received. I can get text and pics but not email w/mp3 file attachment. Any help is greatly appriciated!

    D/L BitPim. Go to google and search for it and download the latest one. It wont be hard to find. when you do that, plug your phone into the computer and let BitPim find it, then use the ringtone selection to find your sound clips

    so theres no way to get all those free java games yet for the new lg phones. I feel so cheated not being able to get those games. I'm not about to pay $10 for tetris. What happened to the good ol' days when phones came with a few free games.

    when u say 180, do u mean u can fit more songs than usual on ur phone, i have the music essentials kit, and when i synced songs to my 8600 i made wmp convert them to 128 bitrate to save a little space. I have the 256 mb card and am thinkin about buying a 1gb card.

    UPDATE: I just converted to the different bitrates, the lowest i will go is 96. And isnt wma smaller than the mp3 format?

    So this is my third 8500, and now they've updated the software, Bitpim says 'blocked by this phones provider'

    hey, i got the same fone. i downloaded audacity like you said and cut a song but couldnt figure out how to save it as an mp3. it saved it as an audacity file. i went to export mp3. i got a pop up that said audacity doesnt not export mp3 file directly, but instead uses the freely available lame library to handle mp3 encoding. do u know how to download that now? thanks for your help.

    It's not really Verizon that's stiffing us though, right? They had nothing to do with the actual programming of the phone, or the capabilities of the software. So, really, it's LG that's stiffing us, not Verizon. At least that's what the dude from the Verizon store told me.

    I don't know, just thought i'd throw that in there!

    Hey guys, I just got a chocolate and I bought a separate memory card cheaper than Verizon's music pack, however, i was wondering if there is any way of doing this without a USB cable, just on a memory card

    Hi guys...new here...I've found your discussion very helpful so far, but I've hit a snag I don't understand. I downloaded bitpim like you all have suggested and it cant find my phone. It's the LG800 chocolate it says...I tried to go in to 'phone finder' in the settings but I'm with Bell Mobility and when I click on that list and then the LG selection on the next list it only lists two phones and mine is not one of them! How come it doesn't think that Bell has this phone?? Help!

    Thanks!

    I just got my chocolate last week. You can get a memory card reader and transfer your files.

    Your completely right, I called LG and asked the guy about the bluetooth issue of not being able to recieve ringtones by bluetooth. He gave me the same URL's. I perfer the "BitPim" program. It is so easy to use and you can create your own ringtone with any song you want, and the program is free.

    Verizon has a long history of screwing over their customers. Their only saving grace is their coverage and internet.

    For ringtones on my chocolate,
    1. Convert files to mp3s with NoteBurner
    2. Use audacity to take out a section of the song
    3. Put it on my microSD 2GB card, in the "Ringtones" folder
    4. Pop in card, put as ringtone
    5. DONE!

    Link for Audacity: Click HERE
    I'd recommend beta, but if you don't like programs sometimes crashing (very unlikely), you may want the older version.

    If you want to spend $2.00, you can send one of the free ringtones from MYXERTONES to your phone ($2.00 from mobile web cost).

    personally i found the easiest i think to get mp3 ringtones!! Took me a whiel to figure it out like a week but i did.

    All you have to do is connect your phone to your computer via usb then go thru my computer and open the folder that contains your phones files there should be like around 4. The thing is there is a HIDDEN folder named "RINGTONES" so you have to go to the menu at the top "VIEW">Toolbars>Customize then look for the "folder options" and add it to your tool bar. Now click on "Folder Options" in your toolbar and go down to a part taht it says show hidden files (says not recommended) enable it and go back to the fold and you'll see teh RINGTONE fodl just drag and drop into that folder!!!

    NOTE: Disable it if u have young children or careless people using ur computer because u don't want them to delete a vital hidden file somewhere else in your system
