I get by with a little help from my friends!

Alright I have a question.

I just got a new phone (despite me not being used to the key layout, I'm totally loving it) and I want to send stuff from my old phone to my new one. I know I can't send the tones I bought (woe is me, I bought the Wicked and U2 tones!) but there should be a way to send the other tones, my flix, and my pix right? i sent them all to my email address and tried emailing my phone back but it didn't seem to work! Is there any way to get that stuff on this phone?

I know nothing about phones, mine can make calls and send plain text messages but not much else, it's a real dinosaur!

I'm kinda old fashioned in a way. I love the cool features new phones have but I like the styles from the dawn of the 21st century (lol). I found the phone closest to the style I like and I got it. I also like the real old school mobile phones! My mom's first cell phone was great, it was probably two pounds and huge! We still have for posterity hehe.

Does your phone have (or have the capabilities to have) a chip in it to increase its memory? My new phone takes a Micro SD card and with that I can store a lot more information on it. But it also allows you to manage more through your computer. So you can put the Micro SD card into a little adapter (I think they come with them) and plug it into your computer and use it kind of like a jump drive. You'd put your photos on the Micro SD card then put the card back in your phone and the pics will be there. I don't have one yet but I think that's how it works. What kind of phone did you get? I absolutely adore my phone.

I'm not sure if it does, it cost a lot of money so it better! ;D
I got a Samsung Gleam.
I like the phone styles of the early 00s so I'm not a fan of these new styles (the Chocolate for example). I like the features all these phones have but...hehe.
The Gleam was the closest I could find to my style without getting a crappy little phone.

I HAVE A SAMSUNG GLEAM TOO!!! OMG Don't you LOVE IT? My first flip phone was a Samsung and I loved it but it didn't get the best service (which I am now thinking was Cingular's fault) When we switched to Verizon I was planning on getting a Chocolate but when I held it I just hated it. The salesman showed me the Gleam and while it was probably $100 more than I wanted to spend and it has made things rather tight money-wise I haven't regretted it for an instant. I just adore this phone. So yeah, you should definitely be able to get a Micro SD card for it. There is information on how to install one page 18 of our handbooks. I know you can also buy direct camera to computer cords but I think it makes more sense to get the memory card so you can store more things on the phone. I don't know how much the cords cost. Here is a link to one of the MicroSD cards, this one is on sale the rest of this week at Best Buy (my mom is picking one up for me, they're $24.99 I think). http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8351623&type=product&id=1176506878551&ref=10&loc=01
This one comes with an adapter. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8356897&st=micro+sd+card&lp=15&type=product&cp=1&id=1177112416832
I think you still have to buy another adapter that lets it plug into the computer but those are like $10 I think. I hope that helps! I'm very excited that we have the same phone. :)

Haha, really? I'm not used to the buttons, I keep mis-typing. I have to get used to that, otherwise I love it!
All my phones have been LGs and I love them but I couldn't find a LG that I wanted so I got the Gleam :B
Yah I was thinking of the chocolate too since it have nice features and comes in a spiffy blue! I hated it though, the scroll wheel annoyed me.

Thanks for the links!

Haha, yah that's cool. I already got a couple of tones, they had my favorite OotP song and some SOuth Park stuff :D

I was leaning towards the Chocolate because my last phone was an LG phone and I really liked it too. But I like my Gleam much more. I didn't like how when youo pulled open the Chocolate it was still completely flat and didn't fit my face like flip phones do. And the salesman said there's been some problems with them that he thought they'd worked out. And then he showed me the Gleam and I had to have it. I've got a bunch of ringtones. My favorites being "Into the Ocean" by Blue October and "Carry on My Wayward Son" by Kansas. I need to look up TV ringtones, I had Will and Grace on my last phone but that was Cingular/AT&T.

Ah your icon makes me nosalgic. I haven't read HP fanfic since the beginning of October! P:
Yeah it not fitting my face and being all flat and the bugs turned me off to it. Same with the iPhone..but why would I need an iPhone anyway? ;p

I wanted the Pirates music but I can't find it anymore!

Do you know a site that can convert your music into tunes?

I don't know of one, sorry. I know we can transfer music to our phones from our computers but I don't think they can be ringtones. And I have an ipod nano so I didn't really care about the music player capabilities. the iPhone is cool but I agree with you, it would be a huge waste of money for me and I wanted out of AT&T.

I miss Harry Potter. I was talking to a friend about it today. He said that he heard JK Rowling published like 20 copies of the book that Dumbledore left to Hermione and they are being auctioned off for charity. Do you know anything about this?

iTunes lets make tones now but they charge so...heh.

I have no idea, I am so out of the loop with Potter! I didn't find out about Dumbledore being gay until two days after it was announced.

Unless you have a memory card, you have to e-mail them to yourself somehow and I don't know the semantics of it. You can call Verizon and ask, and I think it costs like twenty-five cents a picture they told me. Otherwise, no, you can't. I always had to text my pictures to someone else and have them text them back to me when my phone kept breaking.

If they are both USB compatible phones, you can probably connect the old one to your comp, copy the files, then connect the new one and put the files on the new phone...or you can take it to the phone company you got the phones at and they can usually do that stuff for you.
Or if you knew how to crack your phone, you could just use the old SIM card...but you would need to be Dan to know how to do that...:P
Good luck!

Hey hey hey! Are you online? I am going to send you a text message asking the same thing... Basically I want to know if you have heard of Wrock the Boat (www.wrocktheboat.com). I want to go and I was wondering if YOU wanted to go or were going or knew if it was actually a huge scam or something... I am going to call the travel agent lady soon to reserve thingies for me and my bestest friend, racing_turtles. I just thought it would be neat... do do..
