Do you have a computer with Bluetooth support? You should be able to pair it with the computer & copy things over that way. If not, you can connect the device with a microUSB cable (the phone may have shipped with a charger + a microUSB cable that can be connected to/disconnected from the charger). (I'm assuming you have access to a Windows computer.)
Jumping ahead of myself a bit: In the past, I've used a piece of software called BitPim (http://www.bitpim.org) for assistance when it comes to accessing files on these kinds of featurephones. This would be a nearly guaranteed way to get at the files. It's a little powerful, and awkward to get setup (be sure to read the documentation!), but it's worthwhile.
You may have to install LG's driver before the phone can be used with BitPim, but again, documentation exists to assist you in that aspect of the endeavor.
(if you have a version of the VX5500 that doesn't use a microUSB cable, then I would focus on using Bluetooth, because you would otherwise have to get a proprietary syncing cable).
I'm not sure if you can use Bluetooth on this particular phone to send the images to another phone. Verizon kinda removed Bluetooth features from its featurephones for whatever reason, and occasionally this meant you couldn't pair one phone with another to send anything you wanted. But that's a potential alternative.
