If you get the message that you cannot create a folder then you probably have the 'write protect' tab on the adaptor set to 'ON'. Change the adaptor to 'Write Enable' - move the slide on the side of the adaptor to the opposite end. I've forgotten to set it to 'ON' lots of times.

@Glovens - You didn't state whether the pics were taken WITH the camera or whether you imported them. If they were imported then they might be in a format that the phone cant read.

You can only add a pic as a contact icon if you
1. are using the "from phone" view, from contacts.
2. Sync with Google Contacts, and have pics on there.
Some people forget they have contacts shown from Sim, and you don't get pics that way, only on phone view.

Right, on the SD card, create a folder called "Media" - without the quotes obviously..lol
Then inside that "Media" folder, create folders called, "Notifications", "Ringtones", "Alarms". - again, without quotes.
Now, if you want to change your message tone, chuck your .mp3's in the "Notifications" folder, then open your message client(the little green icon on the home screen), press the menu touch sensitive button(lower left under the screen), select "Settings" then scroll down to Ringtones, and just change it there.

The same page in the manual explains the menu bar icons in Gallery. Make sure that you select the 'All' icon. Any photos you have stored on your phone should now be on display.

When I have my first initial text message alert how can I change the alert to a song already stored on my phone. Managed to do this with the reminders from the 'Missed Call' App but cannot do the first one!!!
Thanks freefaller. However, all the photos i have in my SD card does not appear in the gallery and only some selected photos are available in gallery. Why? How to have all the photos in my SD card in the gallery so that i can make contact icon?

1) Press the 'Gallery' icon on your phone. Select the picture you want to use as a contact. Open it and press the left soft key. Select 'More'. On the menu that appears, then press 'Set as'. Select 'Contact' icon. Select the contact to assign it to. Resize the icon to the size you want and press the 'Tick' icon.
2) You can't select a photo as a Theme. If you mean set as wall paper then do the same as before, but on the 'Set as' set it as either Wallpaper or Lock Screen.
3) Can't help with the Bluetooth problem as I've never used Bluetooth.
Just got LGGT540 four days back. It is good. But i have some basic doubts as I am new to Android OS.
a) How to add photos to contacts? I tried through Edit Contact. It leads to Pictures and when I select pitcture from SD card folder, it does not stick to the contact. I also tried throuh OI File Manager. Went to particular folder, selected the photo and continuously pressed it. Came a serious of options and in it selected Contact icon. Went to contacts selected a contact but message comes that andoird.support stopped working and asking me to Force Close. How to do this easily. Can anyone help?
b) How to add photos in SD card as theme? Can downloaded theme be applied? Read in this gsmarena that Android OS does not support downloaded themes.
c) I am unable to receive files/songs/photos through bluetooth. I am able to send it to other phones. But not able to send even after pairing with the phone. The phone which is trying to send the file shows "Sending failed". Can anyone help?
d) As RTB Fox suggested i tried to create a folder in SD but says "Could not create new folder". Why?

Believe me, I've missed plenty of calls because the phone has been in my pocket. Even if it is on view, on a table next to you, the sound will be low enough to miss. Make sure vibrate is on ! ! !
