LG Exalt LTE VN220 Basic Flip Phone.  I have installed 32GB external memory and have good connection to PC via USB.  1. How do I backup Contacts and Data to PC or at least to the external card for manual transfer?  2. If I am not Android or iOS, then what am I? Thanks

    Is this an official LG forum?  Are there LG Tech people that ANSWER questions or does the PUBLIC do all the work while LG gets credit for the forum?  The documentation for this product is beyond poor and LG support is NON-EXISTENT.  If you sell a device you should be required to support it, BY LAW.

    Emmett, The forum is supported by LG as well as other end users as yourself. It would only be possible to transfer music, photos, and videos from this device to your PC.

    Are you saying that all other phones CAN be backed up via USB with the except of this one?  What is so different about this phone that it CAN only be backed up to your Cloud (backup assist) but NOT to one of my choosing?  Looks like I have to award you an LG for LOW GRADE.  Too bad there’s no “F”! My experience with this forum has been no more than a frustrating waste of time.  But I did earn two point.  WOW, what a wonderful and useful Technical Support FORUM.

    Smartphones can be backed up via USB or uploaded to the cloud. The VN220 isn't a smartphone.
