Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


Such a thing may be possible.

Verizon LG [ LG-VX5600 ]
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.


To transfer images, files, etc from that phone, you will have to do it via a usb cable to your computer.

- Download Bitpim and install it from this site: http://www.bitpim.org/#download
- Open Bitpim
- Plug the phone into your computer via usb
- In Bitpim, choose "other CDMA phone on COM? detected).
- Choose Edit > Settings > and choose your phone's model name
- Choose the port that the phone shows
- Click Phone Wizard
- Choose LG as the manufacturer
- Choose your model name
- Click next, choose the same port from above, and click Next
- Do NOT click "Detect" phone.
- Click FINISH
- Click Ok
- Go to the top left to "Data" and the dropdown to get "Get Phone Data" Click that.
- Click the wallpaper looking box. This will pull up your photos.
- Click Media, choose the images you want to keep and save each one. (right click and choose save).

pertaining to above, I need to transfer images from Bitpim to newer cell phone please
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

You save the images in the Bitpim application to a folder on your computer.

Then you can transfer them to your new phone. What is the brand and model name of your new phone, please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the newer phone is a LG840G...tried to remove back so I could look for model number under battery, but having problem getting back off

 

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

You should be able to just plug in the new phone, go to My computer > Removable drive (DCIM) and copy the images from the computer to that folder.

Is that working?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

do I export media from Bitpim to file on computer, then do as you said above, and when I plugged in phone, and it says connect as mass storage...

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.

Yes Ronald, that is absolutely correct.

Thank you for checking up on that.
