My friend got a LG Dare cell phone over the weekend. However, the primary issue is no good way of tracking memos on the LG Dare phone(LG Cell phone Accessories) and syncing them to my pc. So I advised him the Bitpim and which seems ok for the Contacts.
BitPim is a program that allows you to view and manipulate data on many CDMA phones from LG, Samsung, Sanyo and other manufacturers. This includes the PhoneBook, Calendar, WallPapers, RingTones (functionality varies by phone) and the Filesystem for most Qualcomm CDMA chipset based phones.
