BitPim - Get Into Your CDMA Mobile Phone

Yesterday I used BitPim to get into my Reliance India Mobiles's Handset and modify the Ringtones (of LG-RD2030). The handset stores only 3 additional tunes and if you delete those , all the tunes would be lost. I had to reload the tunes from RWorld and use "Overwrite" option to change the tune (melody05.dat, melody06.dat and melody07.dat). I spent more time in finding the right tune than looking at the software, hence more updates later. But a friendly warning : You might screw your phone while doing so. So please do not play with it.

BitPim is a program that allows you to view and manipulate data on LG VX4400/VX6000 and many Sanyo Sprint cell phones. This includes the PhoneBook, Calendar, WallPapers, RingTones (functionality varies by phone) and the Filesystem for most Qualcomm CDMA chipset based phones. (Note: you need to use the 0.7 development releases if you have any phone other than the LG VX4400).
