DO NOT PULL THE CABLE OUT OF THE PHONE WHILE OPERATIONS ARE TAKING PLACE (even just reads). If you do, you could end up with bad data when you read the phone book. You can only fix that by writing good data back again.
The LG-VX3200 is a simpler (less featured) phone compared to the other LG phones supported by BitPim. The manufacturer has taken some shortcuts related to some of the inner workings of the phone that in turn make some of the BitPim media handling a little trickier. This is especially true for the Wallpaper handling. Please see the Howtos help section for this phone for important information.
Remember to examine the "Log" tab in BitPim for useful messages if an operation does not appear to have worked correctly.
The LG-VX3200 imposes some limitations on what can be written to the phone when updating the phone's Phonebook. Note that this is a limitation of the phone and not BitPim. In addition there are other items of note related to Phonebook support. Here are the specifics:
Writing wallpaper selections to the phone for a phonebook entry is not supported. Wallpapers will be set to Default when a phonebook entry is written to the phone.
Only a subset of the phone's builtin ringers can be assigned to a phonebook entry and written to the phone. The only ringers that can be assigned to a phonebook entry and successfully written to the phone are:
Leichte Kavallerie Overture
Mozart Symphony No.40
Mozart Piano Sonata
Stars and Stripes Forever
When the Saints Go Marching In
Only the phone's builtin groups can be assigned to a phonebook entry and written to the phone. Custom groups are not supported. The supported groups that can be assigned to a phonebook entry and successfully written to the phone are:
VoiceDial assignments in the phone are handled correctly when you update the phonebook except for this situation: If you delete only the phone number within a phonebook entry that has a VoiceDial assignment then the phone will keep the phonenumber in the phonebook. You must delete the VoiceDial entry on the phone first.
