LG Cosmos 2 VN 251: Exporting information
October 19, 2011 5:06 PM Subscribe
I just bought an LG Cosmos 2 VN251
phone, and I want to figure out how to export my texts, call history, etc. off the phone and onto my iMac. I was able to do this with my previous phone, an LG-VX9900, via the bluetooth connection using BitPim
—but BitPim doesn't seem to recognize this model, and my text inbox is getting full pretty quickly!

...Also, the iMac doesn't seem to be able to connect to the LG Cosmos' bluetooth; I can't browse the file directories that way. I can browse directories using the USB port, but the directories holding the information I seek to export, they're not visible; I can't find them.
So I've tried connecting via USB, setting BitPim to see the phone as an "Other CDMA phone", and selected the port "USB Device - Vendor LG Electronics, Product VX Series Phone (Direct USB connection), (Interface Diagnostics Interface)" — however, when I try to export with those settings, the option to do so is not selectable; the "OK" button is greyed-out, and none of the checkboxes are checkable. I have also tried setting the port as "/dev/cu.usbmodemfa411" which BitPim says is likely to be my phone... same result.
What's my next step? Is there another piece of software I can use to scrape texts, phonebooks, and call history off my phone?
