How do I get pictures off an old phone with no memory card?

I have tried connecting via Bluetooth with my new phones; it will connect to other phones but I cannot access the pictures on the old phone to transfer them (or I just do not know how!). Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi
It might be worth trying to connect to a Bluetooth enabled computer, when the phone may show up as a separate drive in "My Computer" which you can then browse through for your pictures. I am not overconfident that this will work but worth a try.
More likely would be to try and find some software from the phone manufacturer that will recognise the phone when it is connected to the PC via a cable to the USB port of a computer. This will almost certainly allow access to the phone memory via Windows Explorer and My Computer. The main problem here would be the age of the phone and whether such software is still available.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

    Mike, your suggestions sound promising. Not having a Bluetooth-enabled computer right now, I have considered taking the old phone to a photo kiosk such as Wal-Mart or Walgreens where you can connect by Bluetooth to download pics. Would this work, do you think? I have some really good pictures on the phone and I've kept it for just that reason, deleting anything else on it. But I can't bear to delete those pics to recycle the phone! It is less than 5 years old, I think, so maybe age won't be a hindrance. Thanks for your input! I voted your response as HELPFUL with Fixya, too. Happy Holidays!

How do i transfer photos frpm my nokia to my laptop


You can do it in different ways.

If you have a cable for your Nokia cellphone and you have a Nokia PCsuite, then just connect your cellphone to your laptop via the USB slot.

If your cellphone and laptop has Bluetooth, you can transfer your files wirelessly. Just connect them via bluetooth and choose "transfer" or "copy" the pictures you want to transfer then choose "via Bluetooth".

If you save the pictures in your cellphone's memory card, you can remove the memory card, insert it in a card reader, then insert the card reader into your computer.

Thanks for using Fixya!

How do i get pics of phone 2 my computer? samsung


For Transferring the pictures from your phone you can do it in two ways
1. If you have bluetooth in your PC then you can transfer with that. 2. Second if you got the pictures on a memory card you can use a card reader to transfer it. 3. Third, if you have no memory card, then install your samsung pc suite software> Connect your phone with the data cable that came along with your phone>Select pc suite option on your phone> then Transfer via pc suite. 4.Fourth, if you have a memory card but the pics are on the phone memory then you can simply mark the pictures and move to memory card then transfer via memory card reader or connect a data cable select Mass storage from the option that comes on your phone screen, then browser through the photos on computer and copy > paste.

I WANT UNLOAD ALL THE PICTURES FROM MY SAMSUNG GALAXY S TO MY COMPUTOR


Hello there,

You have 3 ways to transfer your pictures from the phone to the PC. Via Bluetooth, USB cable and via the memory card. The bluetooth is a feature of your phone and you just have to enable it. Make sure that the computer has bluetooth functionality. The usb cable on the other hand can be directly connected to your laptop or desktop PC. You can transfer pictures from there by using the Mass Storage functionality on your phone. Third is via the memory card. You can use a memory card adapter and then install it on a computer with an SD / MMC adapter.

Goodluck!

I am trying to download pictures from my galaxy s fascinate phone and my computer is asking for a disc to be inserted to set it up. A disc did not come with the phone.


Most cell phones today have a few ways of getting pictures, music, videos to your PC/Laptop.

1. Via USB cable - This method usually requires drivers from a CD that came with your phone or can be downloaded from the manufacture's website in order for your PC to recognize your phone when you connect.

2. Via mini SD card - Most phones now have a mini SD slot where you can add more memory to the phone for pictures, music, videos, etc. Usually found attached on the side when you take the battery cover off. It will be a small black chip about the size of a finger nail and to remove it, you simply press it in, then it should release. If you have a memory card reader/slot on your PC/laptop, the mini SD card usually needs a separate adapter to make it fit into a standard SD slot.

3. Via Bluetooth - This requires your PC/Laptop to be able to connect with bluetooth devices. You must pair the PC with your phone first so they can communicate with each other. While using your phone, pick the file (picture, music, video, etc) from your phone, select Options, and send via bluetooth.

How do i download the pics from phone to computer still this is not helping me


Hi,

Let me outline some of the ways you can do this;

1. If your phone has a memory card then copy the picture files from the memory card to the computer. You can do copying first the pics you have on your phone to the memory stick, get the memory stick out and insert into the memory card reader on your computer. You can access the memory card from your computer and copy out the files to your computer.

2. You can transfer pictures also via bluetooth, this is possible if your phone has a bluetooth on it. Locate your bluetooth on your phone and switch it on. Go to your picture folder and open the picture you intend sending. Click on Options > Send > Bluetooth. Make sure the bluetooth on the recieving device (Computer) is on.

3. Transfer the picture via USB and Infrared. Get the USB cable that came with phone and connect to the computer, it would auto start. This would allow you locate the pictures on the phones and copy straight to your PC.

Hope this would help.

Regards

I was given a blackberry pearl 8100 and am trying to import my pictures from my device. i was able to from my media card, but not from the device. how can i get these pics off my phone and onto my...


Hi,
Most of the mobiles will prompt the user to select the mode of connection when connected to computer such as "Mass storage mode/data transfer mode" and "PC suite/modem mode". If you select the "Mass storage mode/data transfer mode", then only your mobile phone's memory card is connected to your system just like pen drive. so only the pictures present in momory card can be accessed. For transfering pictures from phone memory, try the following methods,
1. Go to your file manager in mobile phone, move the pictures from your phone memory to memory card.
2. Install proper PC suite for your mobile, connect to system in phone mode/modem mode/pc suite mode. Then using the PC suite file manager in your system, oyu can access files stored on to phone memory as well as memory card.
3. Connect a bluetooth dongle to your system, establish a bluetooth connection to your mobile. Threw bluetooth file manager from your system, you can browse the phone memory of your phone.
I hope any of the above tips may solve your problem.

CD Rom


you actually don;t really need the CD. you only need the cable to connect to a pc via USB. or you can connect using Bluetooth if your computer supports bluetooth

if your connecting via USB. be sure to set some settings first

go to <Phone Settings
>Connectivity
> USB Connection
> select MASS STORAGE

when you plug your phone. your phone should act like a regular mass storage device. Take note that only the External Memory is accessbile. (NOT the INTERNAL Phone Memory) so be sure to have a Memory card in your phone.


so it will be helpfull to set the default storage of pictures/files/etc to the external memory
