    Oh here is a tip concerning adding wallpapers, take a few pics with the camera, and under the camera segment of the filesystem, overwrite the pics you took (photo_003.jpg) or something, with your 480x640 jpgs. Just name your pics on your PC the same filenames and overwrite in bitpim from there. You can select cam pics as wallpaper so why replace the few you have when you can replace a bunch of lame cam pics. Yay. Halfway there, now to ringtones.. replace, easy, add, no so easy.

    That's a bit of an overstatement. I've seen both, and there are clear differences, but someone could use 8910 instructions as a guide to accomplishing the same results.

    For an example, here's a complete and fully expanded 8910VM fielsystem as seen in BitPim:

    I did have to paste different screenshots to get that.

    Hmmmm....

    Are you 100% certain the overwrite has taken place? Just to be sure, I'd attempt the process with BitPim and QPST, to be sure it's the actual phone that's reversing the changes.

    Yeah

    Yeah, it wipes the new folders. I can watch em vanish when i have bitpim reboot the phone. I will try QPST to be certain as you advise. I was wrong about one thing, the 8910 is somewhat similar, but not enough to dupe the instructions for adding tones. I can overwrite existing, but I have not been able to add new ones. I have not seen a post on any forum or website that doesn't complain about the same thing, people all over seem only to be able to overwrite existing. Thanks for you help, I'll keep looking!

    I have this phone. This isn't about hacking it or anything, but I bet my question can be answered. As far as I know, you can only upload a picture to "My Pix" on the VM website right after you take it. Am I right in assuming this, or is it possible to upload pictures already saved on your phone?

    Also, this thread and this site have really inspired me to maybe buy a cable and see what I can do.

    Pics

    You can upload the pics you take to a friends e-mail address, or e-mail them to yourself at an e-mail address. But it costs 25 cents a pop. With the cable you can dump them free onto your PC, but they don't look really all that great once they are on the larger (pc) screen. The small screen on a cellphone hides the pics flaws. Its not bad for the price tho. If you want a nice High Quality digital cam tho, get the concord at walgreens for 80 bucks. Its like 3.1 megapixel insteal of the less than half a megapixel most cells have.

    Still you can with the cable:

    Overwrite taken pics with jpgs for free wallpapers, w/o having to wipe over the ones that come with the phone

    Dump pics to PC

    overwrite default ringtones with MP3 (30 seconds cuts, use Goldwave or something to cut them out, compress and boost volume). (I havent found anyone that can add new tones w/o buying them but you can buy 2 or 3 and overwrite them all with good stuff)

    You can grab a cable off eBay for $8-$10 shipped. Just search for "8910 cable" (same type)

    Also, take a look at this thread:

    What kind of things can I do on the 8915 without a cable? Anything interesting?

    Btw, I discovered you CAN pix msg a picture to My Pix, don't need to email it. Menu > 1 > 3 > highlight photo > Options > 2 (My Pix) > Ok > Send.
