    lg505c

    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.

    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.

    I'm pretty sure it's Java since folks have already said they downloaded Opera Mini and it works on their phones.

    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.

    I don't have the LG505C so I don't know about transferring games to that phone but you pretty much always have the option to open the native browser to the Home page, select Downloads, and select Games. They're not free but if you really need them that's one option.

    1 - You are using a data/charging cable, not just a charging cable, correct? They look indistinguishable but only a data/charging cable can transfer data. Charging cables just charge the phone.
    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?

    Calendar on the 505c

    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.

    i tried that first it didn't work. I did not have an SD card in so that was probably the problem.

    Put in a microSD card to see if that solves the problem.
