    Verizon has a nasty habit of turning off USB/Bluetooth file transfers on their phones, forcing you to use their Vcast service in order to download media. To use bitpim, many phones will require a simple seem edit to turn file transfers back on. At least, that's what I had to do with my Motorola V3m.

    nice instructable. though, what you dont mention is that this costs money. i believe the rate is 15 cents per kb, so watch the size of your files.

    Yeah I was gonna say, dont worry VW will find a way to charge you for it. Chumps that they are. Why can't they respect longtime customers. i wil say though, my best purchase lately is a Palm 700w that I can do anything with on the computer, and they cant stop that. Ha Ha Ha!

    uhm, this is how to get media off of your phone not "onto" as your title says. If people don't know how to do this then reading their instruction manual was too tricky for them.

    I was just thinking that I needed to look up how to do this today, and here it is. Thank you. You've got some funky looking characters in your step 3 by the way.
