Can someone tell me if the LG505c has a 200 year calendar? My LG800 has one. It starts at 1900 and moves up to 2099. On my Tracfone LG800 I go to Calendar then ''go to date" or something similar to that, then type 1900. This would be the only trivial thing to stop me from buying the LG505c, Thanks.
Has anyone tried downloading games via a usb cable?

apparently it runs on an os called Brew, and the only way to get Brew apps is through the phones browser.
I did attach the USB cable and the drivers installed from the LG website OK, but it still doesn't show up as a drive in explorer, so not sure how to transfer files over USB. Bluetooth works fine for me but USB, no dice.

You shouldn't need special LG USB drivers. Windows can handle the situation by itself. The LG drivers are probably causing complications. Uninstall them. Then do a Windows Update with the phone connected and the update will send you anything you are missing for that type of connection.
I agree with Lisme. LG doesn't support these phones they just manufacture them for Trac & Net10 and Trac/Net10 put their own OS on them so any drivers for 'real' LG phones usually don't work properly.
TY niceman & everyone else. I have to have games for the boring waits at the VA.
2 - Do you have a micro card installed in the phone? With a USB connection, the computer can only see the micro card, not the phone's internal memory. Bluetooth can see the phone's memory but USB can only see the card.
3 - Is the phone set for USB Mass Storage or USB Modem? It should be Mass Storage.
4 - Did you hear the insertion tone when you plugged in the USB cable?
Is this phone on AT&T, Verizon or what?
Thank you Niceman for the input.
It's a shame I have to go trivial on the 505c but I've gotten used to some devices that let me travel back in time from a specific day/date (perspective) from my very early years in the early 50s.
Interesting point: I brought this date issue up to my brother-in-law a few months ago so he whipped out his smartphone at my request to see if it had a 200 year calendar; in my ignorance I just assumed the 200 figure was an industry standard. Well he sat there in the chair for several minutes pushing the date so far back in time I asked him to stop; he didn't bother to search for a shortcut. He told me he stopped the count at the year 1500 or so.
