    Can you import sms messages from older phones on to the EnV touch? (Particularly from the Chocolate 2). I have the messages in BitPim and it says they transfer, the phone reboots itself, and it says there's no messages.

    I just reviewed the BitPim source code for the VX11000 driver, and discovered that the developer had specifically disabled the phone book write functionality just before the 1.0.7 final release. Apparently, the beta reports from the field scared him pretty badly.

    Just conjecture here, but I'm guessing that the current phone firmware is buggy as sin, and we'll all have to wait for LG and Verizon to get their act together. Unless, of course, Verizon likes it just fine this way...

    I was finally able to make it work with Bitpim. The main problem I found is that every time the phone was plugged in, Win7 said that it had failed to properly install the drivers. I opened device manager and deleted the drivers from the computer. I left device manager open and plugged the phone in again. it then said it had two unknown devices without drivers in device manager. I updated the drivers for them and then reopened Bitpim. It listed a COM12 as being available as "LGE Mobile USB Serial Port (COM12)." I set the phone type to the enV Touch and it worked just fine. Hope this helps people in the future with this problem.

    For those of you still having issues with the ENV touch, sometimes you have to see if there is a setting wrong in the phone. Please ensure you only change things that you can fix later.


    I was having issues connecting my phone to Bitpim, version 1.0.7, running Ubuntu 10.04. However this may apply to any OS running bitpim to connect to your mobile device.Also, my phone firmware is a higher revision than the one which Bitpim 1.0.7 was tested on. Mine was VX11KV04 and the tested firmware was VX11KV03. I am guessing that this setting was changed with the firmware upgrade to keep us from using third-party software like Bitpim.

    We are going to access the service menu on your phone. Go ahead and dial this number.
    or
    Then hit send. For the letters, it is just like dialing any other number, like 1800callme=1800225563.

    It wont dial a number, instead a menu will pop up that says "Test Mode"

    From this menu, hit the clear button. You will see another menu labeled "ServicesLG".

    Choose the "Data-LG" Option from the menu.

    Ensure that "PortMap(Data)"="USB CDC" and "PortMap(Diag)="USB Diag".
    On mine, the "PortMap(Diag)" was originally set to "NULL Dev", hence keeping me from accessing it.

    You should be able to leave the menu after changing the setting, and bitpim should be able to detect your phone!!

    GOOD LUCK!

    One thing I have not read on this thread was the use of the LG Outlook Sync tool which lets you sync your phone to Microsoft Outlook. This avenue sounded promising but when I tried, it said my phone needed network connectivity to download the calendar, despite me specifying not to backup the calendar. Others might have better luck with the tool than me since I have deactivated the phone and cannot reactivate it.

    I literally took a swim with my phone for 10 minutes, but after drying it out, the filesystem is still intact (verified with Bit Pim) but the screen is nuked and I can't make calls on it. It appears that I am stuck where ewlloyd was: I've been able to transfer sms messages, notes, ringtones etc but not the contacts.

    I was hoping someone had figured out how to transfer contacts by now via BitPim since I am able to access the filesystem through the program. So any luck anyone?

    Here's the BitPim error I get when I try to transfer contacts (using BitPim 1.0.7 Official)

    If you get the IndexError when trying to transfer contacts like uselessnobody, I was getting that error as well. I managed to patch the phone code to support this though. Open the file mentioned in the error, "phones\p_lgvx11000.pyo" or on linux p_lgvx11000.py. Find line 1086 as the error says which for me read:
    Code:
    def valid(self):
     global PB_ENTRY_SOR
     return self.entry_tag==PB_ENTRY_SOR and ord(self.name[0]) != 0xff
    I changed this to:
    Code:
    def valid(self):
     global PB_ENTRY_SOR
     try:
     self.name[0]
     except Exception:
     return False
     return self.entry_tag==PB_ENTRY_SOR and ord(self.name[0]) != 0xff
    I am no longer getting the error and can transfer contacts fine. Sorry this forum removes indentation, but the lines "self.name[0]" and "return False" should be indented once more.

    Thanks for your response, Fletcher.

    I had posted to the dev mailing list for BitPim for some help to get me set up because I was lazy to install everything in Linux (I couldn't get it quite to work on Eclipse + PyDev on Windows 7), but as soon as I get around to it I will test your fix out and reply.

    Okay thanks Fletcher. I was able to recover my contacts. I did what you said in the p_lgvx11000.py file, but it screwed up the call to the pb_entry.valid property in com_lgvx11000.py. So what I ended up doing was also commenting out lines 244 & 255 in com_lgvx11000.py when it iterates over the entries.

    So just so everyone knows, here are the exact steps I took (this was on a Windows 7 machine):

    1) Download and install the latest stable BitPim (1.07 at the time of writing this)

    2) Descend into the installation directory and find the file library.zip

    3) I've attached both modified files that worked for me, so download them (com_lgvx11000.txt and p_lgvx11000.txt). Alternatively if you go to the development page from BitPim you can get the original 1.07 source and modify it yourself.

    4) I had to change the extensions to upload to this forum, so rename them for the two files from .txt back to .py

    5) Drop the two files into the library.zip. Python should recompile the equivalent pyo files.

    6) Run BitPim and get your contacts

    7) Export them to .csv and save it someone safe or email to yourself or something. Print it out if you have to so you don't ever lose it again.

    Maybe I over looked it but I did not see if you can use Bitpim (1.07) with the LG enV Touch to transfer calendar info onto the Lg enV Touch. Doe this work? Anyone know?

    I have the VTouch btw.
    When BitPim detects it, it says that it is a VX10000 and not VX11000 like it should (I think)

    I couldn't do it through BitPim! I sychronized all of them using bluetooth! It was extremely easy!

    Thank you for the detailed instructions! Unfortunately, I was unable to "drop" the .py files into the library.zip file on my Windows 7 machine. I got a WinZip error.

    Action: Add (and replace) files Include subfolders: no Save full path: yes
    Include system and hidden files: yes
    Adding p_lgvx11000.py
    replacing old Zip file
    Warning: replace: could not delete C:\Program Files (x86)\BitPim\library.zip
    Could not replace original Zip file! New Zip left as C:\Program Files (x86)\BitPim\WZ52E8.tmp


    Any ideas why this failed...

    I do not have Python loaded on my computer. Can you post the library file?
