Just to follow-up, a VZW rep told me I will need to convert the MP3 music to WMA in order for the transfer to work and the files to play. Does this make sense to anyone else? How come other people are seemingly able to pop in their microSD, transfer their MP3's and have them work. I enabled the function in the hidden menu. Thoughts?
I recently switched over to Verizon Wireless from Cingular and purchased an LG VX8300. I am in the middle of my 15-day trial run with it and, so far, I am very happy. Moreover, I was shocked to see the phone score an impressive 8 out of 10 here at CNET because, truth be told, I don't see very many products scoring that high.
Anyway, I purchased a microSD card for the phone yesterday (also from VZW) with the hope that I could not only transfer some photos over to the phone, but some MP3 songs as well (the one negative about the phone is that the standard ringtones that come with it are severely lacking). I was able to transfer the photos over fine, it gave me two options once I put the card in ? either to Erase or Move. So I moved the pics over and tried to do the same with the MP3, but it would not allow me to do so. The only option was to erase, not to move them over. Now, you should know that I did not go for the VCAST option for this phone (though it is indeed a VCAST phone) because I have no interest in paying extra for that service, but I don't see why that would have anything to do with me transferring a file over on a micro card. Assuming that is not the issue, what could it be? Am I doing something wrong? In checking the hidden menu on the phone, MP3 playing IS enabled, so that can't be it. It is driving me crazy!
Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
