    1st download a program called BITPIM from www.bitpim.org. Install the program and configure it for the LG VX8100. Remember the phone needs to be paired to your computer.

    2nd Run the software and you can add any ringtones you want.
    3rd have fun and get creative. :)

    What do you mean by paired and can you put a midi file from your computer onto your phone?

    Thanks

    He/she means that you need to sync/pair the phone to the computer and visa versa. They need to be able to talk and see each other, as it is with any bluetooth device.

    And yes, you would then be able to transfer midi ringtones, mp3's, wallpaper's, etc.

    Thanks. I still don't understand how to set this up. When I try it is not working. Everything is hooked up right but it is not detecting the port even though it detected the device that I plugged into the port.

    2. Select 3. Bluetooth to use Bluetooth
    3. If it asks you if you want to turn bluetooth on, select Yes.
    4. Go to Menu -> Settings and Tools -> 0. Bluetooth
    5. Select 3. My Visibility
    6. Select "Show to All"
    7. On your PC, go to My Bluetooth Places (you can type that in windows explorer and you will go there, or My Network places)
    8. Click View Devices in Range in the left hand side
    9. Double click on your phone
    10. Double Click on Bluetooth Serial Port.
    11. It will tell you what Com Port it is assigning to the phone, this is important, remember it. (you will have to set this in BitPim)

    BITPIM
    Now, install BitPim. and run.
    1. Click Edit ->Settings
    2. Change Phone Type to LG-VX8100.
    3. Type in the COM Port from before
    4. Click the FileSystem Tab (That's all that works for the 8100)


    If need more help let me know.
