VCast Music

I've been beating my brain out for months trying to get any of three separate Verizon phones (2 different LG models and a Motorola) to be recognized by any of my PC's.

I purchased the correct software at the Verizon Wireless store, installed it as directed, but the driver for the phone was never there. I even spent over 2 hours on the phone with Verizon Tech Support one weekend, doing the same things over & over, and reaching ever higher levels of support with never a successful solution.

Today success. I was able to find a driver that works with my phone. It was available for free download at the I Gone Mobile website. No need for the VCast interface, I was able to rip my CD's with Windows Media Player and upload them to the phone using the cable I purchased from Verizon and Windows Explorer.

Everything I want (music) and need (a fine telecommunications device) in a free mobile phone that feels like a phone (not a PDA).

Charlie - I'll try to help, getting there is convoluted.

Good luck. I'm guessing that I was much more helpful than Verizon Tech Support.
