Chocolate Music Syncing

by shenmueguru / August 16, 2006 6:02 AM PDT

I'm planning to convert some AAC music files to MP3 to sync to the Chocolate via card/reader - however, will only songs bought from Verizon VCAST service be able to be put on the phone?

LG chocolate music
by dutch_man / August 18, 2006 1:16 AM PDT

i just got this phone yesterday. i love it!

you can put music you already own on the phone.
vcast is just a service, and not required to listen to music on the phone. (which is awesome!!)

because the internal memory is minimal, you will need to acquire a microSD card (much smaller than regular secure digital cards). they run about $50-$60 for 1 gig at staples, but the phone can take up to 2 gigs. you will also need a card reader for your pc or laptop if you do not have one already. i saw a cheap one on tigerdirect for $15 that looks like jump drive.

you transfer the music from windows media player on your pc/laptop to the card. then put the card in your phone. voila! music on your phone.

have fun!

mp3s as ringtones? i wish
by luedj699 / October 19, 2006 3:55 AM PDT

sorry pal, but LG didn't make the chocolate that versatile. Mp3s can't be made into ringtones. ringtones are special files that you only download from verizon via vcast. they are stored in a special spot in the phone's internal memory. If you want to try to hack it and input your ringtone from there, i can't help you with that, since i don't know how. and verizon and LG probably wouldn't appreciate you hacking their cellphone. but if you do figure out how, please let the rest of us know. that would be a wonderful invention, right up there with activating a speakerphone in the chocolate, since it doesn't have one.

good luck!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
