I have a really cheap phone, the LG 101. It has a really bad selection of ringtones and you have to pay to download others. I was hoping I could plug it into my computer and transfer something myself. I have a micro USB to USB cable, but when I plug in the phone it charges but does not appear as a disk drive. How can I access the files on the phone?

I used to use it all the time to send custom ring-tones, wallpapers and such to my old, locked down, not-very-smart phone.
